Arrrr, it be cruel out there on the MMOceans as Pirates of the Burning Seas
has shut down
seven of its 11 servers. Developer Flying Lab explained that the upshot of the maneuver would be denser servers, especially after an update allowed for more characters per server.
We'd speculate that PotBS
probably hasn't come close to hitting its expected subscription numbers. The developer will soon make changes to the game
, which may bring in new players. But, as we've learned in the post-WoW
years, you can't relaunch an MMO no matter how many upgrades
fix the initial product.
