Joel Bylos, lead designer for Funcom's The Secret World, has stepped up as director to oversee the massively multiplayer online title's post-launch content, the developer announced today.
Bylos will work alongside producer Scott Junior and creative director Ragnar Tørnquist on expanding The Secret World's overall setting and storylines. Bylos previously created post-launch content for Funcom's sword-and-sorcery MMO Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures, including the "Rise of the Godslayer" expansion pack.
"I am very proud of what we as a team have created with The Secret World, and it is truly a brilliant canvas that will allow us to create more groundbreaking MMO experiences for many years to come," Bylos said in a press release. "The Secret World is only really getting started, and with a game world that draws upon our own real world, there is no limit to what sort of amazing stories we can tell and fantastic locations we can visit in the upcoming content updates."
Funcom recently released The Secret World's second update, Issue #2, "Digging Deeper," and is wrapping up production on Issue #3, "The Cat God" and beginning work on Issue #4.
