Funcom wants to "Save Gaia"

FilburFilbur Member UncommonPosts: 254
The CEO of Funcom is currently in the US to prepare the relaunch of The Secret World. Some interesting hints:

So, Here is the CEO of Cabinet Entertainment tweeting about traveling from the west to the east coast with the CEO of Funcom and VIP of Funcom's Marketing to "Save Gaia". And then here's the CEO of Funcom teasing whatever's about to happen. And, lastly, here's the Vice President of Marketing voicing support for it all.

Friends, whatever is about to happen isn't going to be some half-hearted stay of execution. This is something that everyone is really excited about, up to the CEO.

This restored SO much confidence for me. I'm friggin' pumped NOW!

EDIT: It should be noted that Fredrik Malmberg isn't just the CEO of Cabinet Entertainment; he's on the Funcom Supervisory board, which further emphasizes the size and optimism of this update.

    Must admit this whole relaunch thing is a bit confusing, i hadn't even realised they had shut it down O.o

    They didn't. This is a marketimg relaunch, remains to be seen what will really be different about it.

    My guess is a new storyline.

    The above reminds me of the initial launch campaign.

    Wait what?
    That's just some tweets not actually saying anything at all.

    "Gaia can still be saved!" .. that's the very same as "Make America great again!"

    How can people fall for this populistic nonsense?

    Well saving Gaia? is probably wishful thinking by the developers. Making America great again is wishful thinking by the people of America, or in game terms, the players, the way things are going, i wouldn't bet against Trump actually managing to do it, he's off to a good start. B)

    When can we expect relaunch? I thought the reason I didnt want to play was clunky combat if they change that +++

    Yep, pretty much this, they will change and revamp some things (don't know how deeply the changes will go), but the "relaunch" should be in brackets.

    marciantobay is a nice poster, just a bit too optimistic (or enthusiastic) for my taste, I'm more the "glass is half empty" type. Or, in this case, "if you tilt the bottle you can see a few leftover drops at the bottom" type :lol:
    Strangely the exact post of marcian hints a warning sign, the utter silence from FC - so players try to grab every morsel of information they can get.
    They are hiding from us since February, but they want to promote Exiles on PAX, so hiding time is over, they will get quite some questions in person - I can't wait to hear the answers :lol:

    If they dont improve the combat, I consider it useless.

    Well, saving Gaia sounds like recycling to me and relaunching is a kind of recycling...

    Anyways, TSW is a pretty good game but I am not sure a relaunch really will change much unless they do a lot of work on the game.

    If they improve animations and UI I'm back in. Combat would be a very nice bonus.

    *fingers crossed* I will return to check it out, Funcom! :D

    My SWTOR referral link for those wanting to give the game a try. (Newbies get a welcome package while returning players get a few account upgrades to help with their preferred status.)

    Well, so much for his optimism...

    TSW is on maintenance mode without any updates anymore (who knows for how long even the servers will be up), and TSW Legends will be the new shiny. Not even an MMO, just a "a shared-world action RPG"  whatever that means. I guess the action part means crappy combat. :lol:
