Age of Conan Still Slated for Xbox 360

By Chris Faylor, Dec 01, 2008 3:50pm PST Though there's been no official word for a while and developer Funcom recently laid off some staff, the studio is still planning to deliver the long-promised Xbox 360 edition of its mature MMO Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures.

"The Xbox 360 version of the game is still in production, but as before we are not committing to any specific dates," product manager Erling Ellingsen told MTV Multiplayer. "I wish I could give you more information, but I can't at the time being."

As for the layoffs, Ellingsen noted that "our aim is for this to not affect development of Age of Conan, or any of our other games, at all. We are sticking firmly to our plans."

Following its May 2008 launch on PC, Age of Conan has seen some troubled times, including a misogynstic glitch that made male characters more powerful than their female counterparts, and the recent departure of game director Gaute Godage, who cited his dissatisfaction with the overall product.

More recently, newly appointed game director Craig Morrison announced his intent to begin addressing common woes, such as "content gaps [at] the highest level."
