Funcom has announced that the closed beta for their upcoming MMO, The Secret World, has reached over 500,000 registered users.
That is a staggering number for any game that isn't even in open beta yet and definitely shows some exciting promise for the future of The Secret World.
“We are thrilled to see the amount of interest ‘The Secret World’ is generating among gamers and the press, and exceeding half a million beta registrations six months before release is definitely something we are proud of,” says Funcom CEO Trond Arne Aas.
“The gamer interest in ‘The Secret World’ and the community size for the game is even greater than we experienced with ‘Age of Conan’ at the same stage of development. We expect the community size to keep on expanding at an ever faster pace in the coming months as we approach Open Beta and launch.”
The Secret World is on par for an April 2012 release date but eagers fans need not worry, as Funcom has plans for an open beta before the game ships next year. For more on The Secret World, head to http://www.thesecretworld.com/.
