Funcom's The Secret World Unhides in 2009

Ragnar Tornquist of Funcom has revealed in his blog that his pet MMO, The Secret World (TSW), will be getting a lot more information released about it this year. This is good, because a title that started work in 2002 probably should start releasing information seven years later or really shut up shop.

Personally I'm excited about TSW - I want a dark modern MMO title to try out. It's a genre that really hasn't been touched on yet but one with a lot of scope. Of course, the fact that 1) Funcom are developing it and we all know what happened with their last title, and 2) the blog entry itself boils down into "we'll release more information, but given you have very little information now, any info release will be 'more' by default, plus we are changing systems you never knew existed', so perhaps I'm getting excited over very little.

However, Tornquist promises the right things to get me interested - interesting professions, conspiracies to uncover, a modern setting with a dangerous twist. I may still end up with a lvl 35 Crytpozoologist who is on a quest to Kill 10 Bigfoots, but I choose not to be so cynical at this point.
