I was messing around on wikipedia looking up Pirates of the caribbean when i came upon this. Pirates of the Caribbean Online I think its a really neat MMORPG idea that hasnt been done yet.(that i know of) Imagine playing online with Jack Sparrow or Will Turner(NPCs of course) in huge quest going across seas and islands. You could hide and find burried treasure and rare "Cursed Aztec Gold" (could change your costume in moonlight) Have your own ship and crew, the ship could act as say a clan or a guild and the crew members are the ones who joined your "guild". The Captain being the leader of the guild could give different promotions to each player and could all sail at once to look for gold and whatnot. Im gonna have to check this out when its released. What do you guys think?

I think this is a good idea, sounds like fun! We could make a Wireforums pirate crew, and sing songs on the seven seas, fighting spammers and noobs! Yarr!

I really cant wait for this.... Found some more info on it in another forum.

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" opens Friday (July 7), but the Walt Disney Co. also has high hopes for the property in the strikingly different media of massively multiplayer online games.

"Pirates of the Caribbean Online" will become a reality next year when Disney Online reveals an original story set within the mythology of the "Pirates" film trilogy.

Disney Online Virtual Reality Studio vice president Mike Goslin knew he wanted to create an MMOG based on the theme park ride even before 2003's "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl" grossed nearly $654 million worldwide. He brought with him an intimate knowledge of the attraction from his work on an award-winning virtual reality ride for the Disney Quest zone in 1998, which gave him hours of access to Disney World.

Goslin said that after the success of "Black Pearl," Disney took a step back and developed the two new films from even more of a long-term franchise perspective. A core team went back and created a mythology around the world of the films, in addition to the stories of the two sequels, from which the books, video games and other manifestations of the intellectual property could be drawn.

WORLD OF RICHES

"When you start to look at this mythology, we were able to realize just how rich this world is," Goslin said. "There's a lot going on with the characters and enemies in this world. We became familiar with the direction that the two films were going and embarked on an original, parallel story that will encompass hundreds of hours rather than the two to three hours each film takes up."

There will be plenty of elements from "Dead Man's Chest" in the game, including the Kraken, Davy Jones (Bill Nighy) and his crew of undead aquatic creatures, Cutler Beckett (Tom Hollander) and, of course, the anchoring trio of Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp), Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) and Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley). Goslin said he hopes to get the likenesses of all of the principal characters from the films. Discussions are under way with key actors to provide voice acting for the game.

"We'll allow gamers to interact with the main characters from the films through frequent, staged interactions," Goslin said. "The linear story line allows for cut scenes that set up the game's chapters."

Depp already lent his voice to "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Legend of Jack Sparrow," which was released June 28. The title was developed by Seven Studios and Bethesda Softworks and distributed under license from Buena Vista Games.

The "Pirates" MMOG will have an original villain named Jolly Roger, who was inspired by the Disney theme park attraction. (He's the pirate who warns people to turn back before the ride ushers visitors into its subterranean world with a waterfall plunge.) Players also will interact with villains from the films, but the game is set in a parallel universe that won't track with the linear films.

A release date has not been set, but the game is expected to launch at least by the time the third film, "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End," hits theaters in May.

Goslin is working closely not only with producer Jerry Bruckheimer's core film team but also other divisions within Disney Interactive. While there will be no overlap between the "Pirates" MMOG and the recently released "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" PSP and GBA games from Buena Vista Games, Goslin meets regularly with the creative teams behind the next-generation "Pirates" games (also due next year from BVG), as well as the people working on the "Pirates" cell phone games. That opens the door for some potential crossover, especially in the mobile gaming space.

Ha ha... wow I forgot this thread existed. It's been almost a year.

So where the heck is this game?!? At World's End has come and gone. Come on! :(

BTW, Roger Smith and I will be starting up a guild almost immediately. Anyone who wants to join is welcome.

Honestly I think this (or in this case, "that") idea for a game was / is retarded. Yeah it's different, but Pirates of the Caribbean for an MMORPG? It just doesn't have a good mix.

How doesn't it have a "good mix"? It's PotC, and it's an online game! I love pirate games, and online pirate games are even better. I expect good quality from this one especially.

Well thru my view, I'm not interested in the Pirates movies, and haven't really ever played a pirate-related game. The closest to that would be Age of Empires, Civilization, or any of those kind of games.

Ah, I see. IMO Pirate games are awesome, the best being Sid Meier's Pirates. You should check it out sometime.
