The Secret World developer Funcom is currently under investigation by Norweigan authorities, who suspect the company has infringed that country’s Securities Trading Act.
Norwegian financial authority Økokrim raided Funcom’s office yesterday, and suspended trading of its stock.
The stock is now back on the market, and Funcom said it is fully cooperating.
“Production on all Funcom games continues as normal, and the company remains fully committed to games in development as well as the continued operation and updating of existing live games,” it said in a statement issued to Massively.
"Funcom's key priorities are the development of the upcoming Lego Minifigures Online, as well as supporting and expanding on the live games Age of Conan, The Secret World, and Anarchy Online with new and exciting content.
“Yesterday’s events are not expected to have any impact on the company’s continued operation or the development on future releases.”
According to NewsWeb, Økokrim has charged Funcom with infringed provisions of the Securities Trading Act, regarding information released to the market about The Secret World between August 2011 and July 2012.
It is believed that Funcom neglected to keep a log of company information during this period.
