Lead Programmer Hamled
has apologized to players for "the lack of discernible progress and substantive information" in Pirates of the Burning Sea
as of late. To make it up to fans, Hamled has posted an extensive development road map for 2013
In descending order of priority, the dev mentions the following projects for the team: getting out the 2.12 update, completing the transition from Flying Lab Software
, bringing back up needed hardware infrastructure, rebuilding the account system, providing localization services, creating a dedicated game installer, and redesigning the official website.
"I will be working on many of these tasks in parallel because we can't afford to wait until each one is completely finished before moving on to the next," Hamled stated.
