Funcom: “We definitely have the tools” for free-to-play Secret World
So they are basically saying they are doing a sub based business model unless the game cannot sustain it.
I do agree with what they said about how it is going to be harder to ask for monthly money (especially as a new game) when some established games are already f2p after you purchase the actual game. (Starcraft, Diablo, Guild Wars and even rumors of WoW going F2P once Blizzard releases "Titan" a few years down the road)

Buy to play(coupled with a decent trial account system) with some kind of real money store seems like it is the best model for sustainability. Free to play games just simply don't have the production level of a game like TSW though and they probably would have had to cut back drastically on the initial budget if they planned on making it that way from the start.
