Rumor has it that Age of Conan sports less than 100,000 paying subscribers. This according to analysts at DnB NOR Markets, who are bringing this up as a follow-up to chief financial officer Olav Sandnes resignation due to the poor performance of the company. Funcom is reporting a loss of $23.3 million, whereas Age of Conan is responsible for $22.8 of those. Ouch.
On the other hand, Funcom is estimating that the first quarter of 2009 will bring in revenue in the range between $6 and $8 million from Age of Conan. That’s assuring for the players at least, the game shouldn’t be in peril just yet, and with a movie on the way, along with the Russian expansion and whatnot, the game’s just not over for Age of Conan just yet.
