    After much review and consideration, SOE and Flying Lab Software have decided that Pirates of the Burning Sea will leave the SOE family of games on January 31, 2013. Portalus Games, a new company made up of former Flying Lab employees, is planning to re-launch the game on its own platform in the near future.

    Portalus Games plans to continue operation of both the Roberts and Antigua servers upon the re-launch. If you wish to have access to your existing characters when Portalus relaunches the game, you will need to create a Portalus Games account and link your game data to that account before January 31, 2013 (details below). Please note that none of your SOE account data or personal information will be transferred in this process.

    More information about Portalus Games, the new team, and upcoming plans for Pirates of the Burning Sea will be available on the Portalus Games website.

        Currently our plan is for it to relaunch on February 1st, with as little interruption of service as possible. If there are any changes to this schedule we will post them on the website and here on the forums.

            /agree

            Would be good to know, cause it might decide what direction the game will take.
            The last patches have been the wrong direction imo, so i hope "some former members of PotBS" will not be the current team. Sorry to say this, but thats the truth!

              Is this good news that I'll finally get my Turtle ship in an Asia version of POTBS in the future?

                Currently we do not have plans for adding new servers in addition to Antigua and Roberts.
                Also, we are currently developing our marketing strategy for the entire company, including for PotBS.

                  We are going to do detailed introductions of the team in future blog posts at portalusgames.com. However I can say right now that the principal members of the team are myself, Fodderboy, and Half-Hitch.

                            You can use any email address that works for you, and you should be able to use the same email address for all of your accounts.
