Funcom keeps slipping. The company responsible for the MMO Age of Conan has reported a 23.3 million dollar fourth quarter loss. The CFO that delivered the bad news, Olav Sadnes, has since resigned.

It’s unclear if Funcom will take any extra measures to trim or bolster Age of Conan in the wake of the financial news. As Gamasutra mentions, Funcom recently closed 31 of its original 48 servers -- a mammoth slash for an MMO that reported big user numbers in its fledgling months. Funcom is now tasked with getting people back into their game without having to spend loads of cash.

Perhaps more intriguing is what may happen to the Xbox 360 port of Age of Conan. Will work continue on the already substantially delayed game? We asked Funcom for comment and have yet to receive a response.
