Transition Update

Good morning! I don't have a lot to add about the transition. It looks like we're still on target for Monday, but I wanted to answer some of the questions that have been coming up in the comments threads.

Will I have to download a new launcher?

Yes. The old launcher was managed by Sony, and we have a new one. Once we have the servers back online and have tested the launcher to make sure everything is working properly, we'll make it available at

Will I have to download the game if I've already downloaded it?

No. You will be able to patch the old client with the new launcher, so you won't have to download huge files.

What happens if I missed the migration window?

If you missed the migration window, we'll have to migrate your account manually. After the transition process is complete, please get in touch with us and we'll work something out on a case by case basis.

If there are more questions coming up I'll do another answer post, and I'll try to answer questions in the comment thread through the course of the day. Thank you all for all your support, it's been really great to see how excited everyone is about Pirates of the Burning Sea in the comments.
