Threshold of a Dream

Pirates of the Burning Sea has a publisher. This MMORPG, in development since, well, forever, looks like it's finally about to be released this fall. The publisher is Sony Online Entertainment, which sounds scary given their history, but the Flying Lab Software guys seem to have worked out a deal where SOE does not interfere with the design of the game - they just publish it, market it, and do the billing.

Sounds like a sensible deal to me for both sides. I can't wait to get my hands on this game. It's a dream come true for me, having spent the better part of the last decade trying to get the meager seafaring aspect of Ultima Online developed into something similar and failing miserably.
