Funcom has told Eurogamer that Age of Conan has been pushed back to 20th May.

The gory MMORPG was previously expected in March, but apparently the developer needed more time to iron out bugs and stress-test the systems.

This isn't the first time AoC has been delayed. The game was originally scheduled for release late last year.

As for the 360 version, Funcom is keeping shtum - simply stating it is "to follow".

While a delay for the sake of quality sounds bearable, it does mean AoC will launch alongside other World of Warcraft-contender Warhammer Online, which is due out sometime in the second quarter.

Still, Age of Conan and its oily pecs have impressed us so far. Pop over to our preview to find out more.
