Ahoy there!

As you may know, Pirates of the Burning Sea (PotBS) will be leaving SOE's family of games at the end of the month and setting sail with Portalus Games. Portalus may be a new name, but the people behind it are veterans of Flying Lab who love the game. They have banded together to form a new company whose sole focus is PotBS, and will continue running, developing, and expanding the game into the future.

I'm personally very excited about Portalus and I'm looking forward to where they'll be taking PotBS, but it will be as a player, not as a member of the development team. I've had a lot of great moments in the development of Pirates, and while the details of these moments are wildly varied, they all revolve around the same thing: interacting with you, the players. We decided to build an MMO because we wanted to have a more direct relationship with our players, and PotBS came through in spades. I’ve enjoyed going out, and meeting and talking with so many of you, and I wouldn’t trade a moment of it for the world.

I want to thank all of you for your support, and if one day you're sailing on the open seas, and you meet a grizzled old Pirate who talks about the old days, think a kindly thought for me. Then give him a broadsides and take his ship!! See you on the Burning Seas!

- Co-Founder Flying Lab

REMINDER: Pirates of the Burning Sea servers will be shut down at 10:30pm PST on 1/31/13. For details on character transfers, please visit www.portalusgames.com.

    Good for Russ.  I have a feeling that far from abandoning a sinking ship, he's finally managed to untie himself from the anchor.

    props for enjoying the game but i'm on the other server.  best of luck recruiting.  I hope that some of the folks who kept away fromPotBS because of the sony tag will try it now.  because it's a different and fun game.
