Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures, the gross and gory MMORPG being developed by Funcom, has been delayed again apparently, according to a report at Eurogamer.

The game is now set for a release on May 20th this year.

The incredibly dark and violent MMO is being touted as a faithful recreation of the Conan universe by Robert E. Howard fanboys and, if the current footage is anything to go by, looks to be a nicely adult take on the franchise after years of camp cartoons and movie tie-ins.

This isn't the first time that the release date has been pushed back though - the game was originally set for a debut late last year and we've been practically salivating with anticipation since long before that.

Eurogamer also reports that there is still no news on the Xbox 360 version of the PC MMO, with Funcom only committing to the fact that it will follow the PC game at some point.

Funcom has said that the delay has come about so that more time can be spent combing through the code to find bugs and so the game can be stress-tested for performance problems. A good idea, sure, but it does mean that Age of Conan will be competing directly with Warhammer Online.
