The website of ShackNews has released an article of AoC#DY#s new game director#DY#s promise to AoC fans: a more "player-centric" direction for the MMO will launch in March. Former director of Funcom#DY#s Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures has quit Funcom after 16 years because he was dissatisfied with parts of the game.
The details are as below:
"I think that the fact that Gaute leaves means that we get a direction which is more player-centric, since [new game director Craig Morrison] is so good at being hands-on with the communities at all times," said Funcom product manager Jorgen Tharaldsen to MTV Multiplayer in reference to the sudden departure of Gaute Godager.
"We have seen but the start of the evolution of Age of Conan, and out of all the people in Funcom, I can#DY#t think of anyone which could do it better than Craig," said Tharaldsen. His optimism echoes that of Morrison himself, who promised, "My main priority now is therefore to listen to, and act on, player concerns."
