Age of Conan Is 'Undisputed #2 Subscription MMO,' Claims Developer

By Chris Faylor, Jun 30, 2008 8:51am PDT Furthering its prolific tendency of positive announcements, Age of Conan developer Funcom today claimed that the recently-launched PC MMO is "the undisputed #2 subscription MMO in the western world."

Funcom has repeatedly trumpeted Age of Conan's relative success against Blizzard's MMO juggernaut World of Warcraft, which has over 10.7 million subscribers worldwide and helped bring in over $1.2 billion across 2007.

Conan has now amassed over 700,000 accounts since its European and North American release in May, with the game said to be topping PC sales charts worldwide.

"It has remained the overall #1 PC game in most European markets," Funcom stated. "No substantial sales data for June is yet available from the US market, but Age of Conan was the #1 PC game in the latest official NPD update."

"All we care about now is to make Age of Conan into an even better game," added Gaute Godager. "We have extensive plans to ensure that Age of Conan remains a top MMO alternative for many years to come.
