"The launch of the hybrid business model has been very successful so far," said Funcom CEO Trond Arne Aas in a statement.

"The activity levels on the servers are booming with a four-fold increase in players during July, we more than doubled the revenue generated from the game, and we have experienced a positive development in subscriber numbers. This definitely gives us great hope for the game's future."
