Age of Pirates Revealed

Age of Pirates Revealed on Pirates Ahoy! reveals that the upcoming pirate-themed game from Akella is a project called Age of Pirates, rather than Sea Dogs 2 as was speculated (story). Included are some details on the project, as well as a Q&A with Akella's Renat Nezametdinov discussing the open-ended nature of the project:
Completely open ended. The player creates his own story himself as he starts the game. No prescripted story, no plot bounds - just do what you want. AOP game world is a complex system that lives by itself and reacts on player actions. Player still has a goal to achieve (gather all colonies under his hand) but there are many ways to reach it. AOP is the game where old Greek saying "The man can't enter the same river twice" becomes true. Player will never be able to repeat his previous game even if he tries.

Now that I think about it, I think Age of Empires was first.

Age of Sail, 1996.

Age of Empires, 1997.

That's what mobygames says, anyway.

Sweet, I was right. Well, at least my first stab at it was.

Pirates of the burning sea, actually (http://www.burningsea.com/).

It looks preyy impressive, visually at least. Nvidia featured some of burning sea on their site at one point.

Interestingly, Akella modeled most of the ships for burning sea, so I wonder if any of those ships will show up in Age of Pirates.

So how much time before a pirate mmorpg is announced? Could be interesting and fill a hole in the market since 99% of other mmorpgs are either medieval or sci-fi.

This actually looks pretty cool.

More depth than Pacma<ahem>Pirates! would be good.
