Funcom has announced the sign-up figures for their MMO The Secret world.
Due for release next year, Funcom has busy been recruiting Beta testers for the past couple of months. Today they revealed that half a million potential Beta testers have signed up.
“We are thrilled to see the amount of interest ‘The Secret World’ is generating among gamers and the press, and exceeding half a million beta registrations six months before release is definitely something we are proud of,” says Funcom CEO Trond Arne Aas. “The gamer interest in ‘The Secret World’ and the community size for the game is even greater than we experienced with ‘Age of Conan’ at the same stage of development. We expect the community size to keep on expanding at an ever faster pace in the coming months as we approach Open Beta and launch.”
