Age of Conan delayed AGAIN

Funcom pushes release date back to May

Funcom has slapped Age of Conan with a May 20 release date today only days after telling us it was targeting March 25 for the game.

It's a further delay for the MMO which was originally supposed to release at the end of last year.

An initial delay occurred following the developer's decision to make alterations to the game's combat system, and it's now saying the title needs additional spit and polish.

"Despite great feedback on vital aspects like immersion, fun factor and the exciting combat system, the management of Funcom has decided to polish the game even more. Eight weeks of development work is therefore added to stress game systems and polish the game further leading up to launch", it's said in an official statement.

Fumcom recently confirmed that an open beta for Age of Conan will occur just prior to release.

In related news, a trailer showing off the game's technology is ready for viewing in our video player.

We've got plenty more on Age of Conan on our game homepage, including a recent hands-on report.
