Funcom Responds to Office Search and Legal Issues

GamingShogun.com writes, "We sent our press contact at Funcom an email asking for some clarification on what transpired as well as what this means for their current and future game properties. Here is their response:

“We would very much like to provide you with the latest news regarding yesterday’s events, and we hope you can relay this to your readers as well so that they have the latest information and perspectives.

Yesterday, the company received a visit from Økokrim (the Norwegian National Authority for Investigation and Prosecution of Economic and Environmental Crime) who is conducting an investigation on the suspicion of infringement of the provisions of the Securities Trading Act with regards to financial information given to the market surrounding the launch of The Secret World. Funcom is of course fully cooperating with Økokrim and the company is providing them with all necessary information to make sure the situation can be clarified and resolved as soon as possible..."

A corporation that makes a bunch of forgettable MMOs would actually be a convenient organization for shifty business. And with things looking rather bleak for the company at the time (still not so great today), well...sometimes things get desperate.
