Publish date:

Funcom has announced its new MMO, The Secret World, is to launch on June 19, 2012.

The game had been originally anticipated for an April release, but Funcom has decided to give the developers more time for "even more polish".

With writer/director Ragnar Tørnquist of The Longest Journey at the helm, The Secret World promises subscribers a unique story, and quests that take them into the real world to find clues to puzzles scattered throughout the game.

Over 750,000 have registered for the closed Beta, which Funcom has said will intensify in the coming weeks, and should see several large scale pre-launch events.
