Sales up, too.

Last month The Secret World dropped its subscription fee and moved to a pay-one, play-forever model akin to that of Guild Wars 2. Now, it seems, that move is paying off.
Funcom claims in a stock report to their investors that “activity levels in the game have increased by over 400% as original players have returned joined by thousands of new players”. Furthermore, Funcom reports that The Secret World shifted 70,000 sales in the last four weeks, which marks a 30% jump in sales figures.
It’s not all good news though — an announced restructuring of the company means that the Montreal studio of the developer is set to see some job losses, with further losses across the company. However, no games are set to be cancelled as a result.
