Flying Lab Software has announced its Pirates of the Burning Sea’s MMO will have it’s free-to-play launch delayed by a week.

Speaking in a post over on the game’s official forums, producer Michelle Williams said: “The 22nd was the earliest possible release date due to legalities of giving notice to players.

“We’re expecting launch to be early the week after Thanksgiving. While some of us had visions of tons of new players spending their entire Thanksgiving weekend doing their Christmas shopping in Pirates of the Burning Sea’s Treasure Aisle, we’ve had to measure that against the risk of putting out a build with too many bugs on a short week when many folks crucial to responding to potential problems aren’t available to do so.”

The game servers will go down on November 29, and once back up the game will be free-to-play.

It was announced back in October the game would go free-to-play “around or on November 22”.
