Funcom hitting Norwegian stock market

Nordic MMO-maker behind the Age of Conan will soon be listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange.

Though hardly the center of world finance, the Norwegian capital of Oslo does have its own stock exchange. So it's little wonder, then, that one of the country's top game companies will soon be listed on the national market of the oil- and fjord-rich country. Today, Funcom, developers of the forthcoming massively multiplayer online role-playing game Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures, announced it would soon be listed on the market under the ticker symbol FUNCOM. "The fact that we have been able to secure close to $30 million (US) with the listing means that we can further improve the quality on all aspects of our forthcoming online games," said Funcom CEO Trond Arne Aas.
