Allegations that Funcom may have been less than upfront about the finances around The Secret World.

The Secret World developer Funcom has been re-instated to the Oslo stock exchange overnight, following its temporary de-listing after it became the subject of an investigation by Økokrim.
Økokrim, the Norwegian authority that deals with financial crime, is investigating Funcom over “suspicion of infringement of the provisions of the Securities Trading Act with regards to the financial information given to the market regarding The Secret World from August 2011 until the launch of the game in July 2012 and the two months following the launch”.
This news comes at a time when Funcom are not exactly in the best financial position, losing large amounts of staff and money since launching The Secret World, and cutting back on their international operations.
We’ll keep you informed if any more news comes to hand.
