Almost half of this people are form the North American market. Which means a lot of people are sick of playing WOW. Funcom officials claim that the game has already become one of the busiest MMOs in the Western hemisphere
over the weekend, with more than 2.2 million unique visitors to the Age of Conan websites over the last ten days.
The company has also been keen to promote reviews so far for the game,
with the first twenty logged pushing the game’s average to above 90
The news will be particularly welcome following the company’s recent first quarter financial results, which made it clear that future profits depended almost entirely on the game’s successful launch and long term success.
“The initial sales and reviews are very encouraging, and it’s great to see that so many are enjoying Age of Conan,”
said Funcom CEO Trond Arne Aas. “This is just the beginning, and we
already look forward to massive updates and cool new features. We
believe our focus on making Conan unique and groundbreaking is a key
reason for the initial success. This is a focus we will keep and
reinforce, and players can expect continued quality and innovation as
we enter a new era for the game.”
