Funcom is still very eager to release an Xbox 360 version of Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures, with a 2009 release planned.
Funcom has apparently confirmed that it is still working on the Xbox 360 version of PC MMO Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures
, though the release date for the game is still a fair way off.
"The Xbox 360 version is still very much set to happen and we are working on it,
" said Erling Ellingsen, Funcom bossman, in an interview with Eurogamer
"However, there are no dates set, even though we aim for a 2009 release. Our big priority now is, of course, the PC version and fixing the issues with it and improving it for our current players.
Issues indeed? Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures
scored an impressive eight out of ten in our review, though the game didn't quite manage to bag the coveted bit-tech recommended
Work began for the Xbox 360 version in December 2006, but the project has been shelved for the last year so that efforts could be focused on the PC release. The plan was to pick up development again a year later.
Rumours have been circulating that problems with Xbox Live certifications and PC community support has forced the developer to abandon the Xbox 360 MMO, but Funcom is apparently standing by the project as staunchly as possible.
Funcom is currently testing an upcoming PvP reward patch for Age of Conan
that will offer the best players some epic equipment from specialist NPCs and stores.
