PotBS - Dev Log @ Official Site
A new dev log at the official Pirates of the Burning Sea site addresses the question of shipping dates.
I realize the subject of when we’re shipping is a hot topic for the community. As you may expect, it’s a hot topic for us as well. When I talked about the distribution issues earlier, I had expected that the issue would be closed by now and that we’d have announced the new date. Needless to say, this hasn’t happened. That’s not to say that we haven’t made progress (a first draft of the contract was delivered), but it’s still not done.
