Publisher Funcom has announced that its forthcoming MMO Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures will be delayed an additional eight weeks for more polish, following its previous delay from the second half of 2007.

In August of last year Funcom first delayed the title to March 25th, following feedback from its beta testing. The game was originally intended for launch in the second half of 2007, after receiving some positive feedback during previews over the last year.

Now Funcom has said the game will launch on the 20th of May, "allowing Funcom to deliver a more polished MMO experience when the game launches."

"Despite great feedback on vital aspects like immersion, fun factor and the exciting combat system," the company said, "the management of Funcom has decided to polish the game even more. Eight weeks of development work is therefore added to stress game systems and polish the game further leading up to launch."

Said game director and producer Gaute Godager, The companies standing apart in the gaming market today are those with a relentless drive to achieve quality. Even though we regret delaying the launch, I am certain we made the right choice. I hope that our followers and fans will support our decision, and respect our commitment to quality."
