Funcom, developers of the highly anticipated MMORPG Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures has announced pre-orders of the game's collector's edition have been strong enough to cause the title to completely sell out.

It's expected that 700,000 copies of the game will be sent to distributors for the first day of sales alone, and Funcom have announced that some pre-orders may even go unfulfilled due to server limitations.

Morten Larssen, Funcom's VP of Sales & Marketing stated: "Everyone in Funcom is delighted and humbled with the historical pre-order numbers for Age of Conan,"

"If the information we have is correct, they represent the highest pre-order number for any global launch of an original PC game, ever, including the original World of Warcraft launch."
