for all those people who always wanted to grow up to be a pirate. Now honestly who doesnt love a pirate game? lol

I hope this is actually a good game cause would be cool to pillage and plunder online
Pirates of the Dark Water was one of the coolest cartoons ever.

Also, does anyone else have that webpage slow down to a crawl on firefox?

WESTWOOD, Mass. – March 22, 2005 – Turbine, Inc., a leading publisher of online subscription entertainment, announced today that it has finalized a deal with Tolkien Enterprises and Vivendi Universal Games (VU Games) that grants Turbine the exclusive right to develop and publish massively multiplayer online worlds based on The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit literary works. As part of the agreement, Turbine will own all of the game assets to the upcoming, highly anticipated massively multiplayer online role playing game (MMORPG) The Lord of the Rings™: Middle-Earth™ Online. All publishing responsibilities previously assumed by VU Games for the online license have been transitioned to Turbine effective immediately.

**EDIT** Ahhh...Found it..new I wasn't crazy...It was Sierra...

Sierra announced a Middle-earth MMORPG a few years back, to the delight of fans, but the project didn't go anywhere and was canceled. Then the movies hit. With two released in theaters already, and one more due in December, fan interest in Middle-earth has reached a fever pitch. Not only that, but new fans have added to the clamor. The market might be saturated with MMORPGs but … there just might be room for hobbits, elves, goblins, and Tom Bombadil-style poetry. Vivendi Universal thinks so, and so do the patrons of Gen Con, they swarmed the booth showing Middle-Earth Online. We managed to get Producer Chris Taylor (the other one) away from the throng for a brief conversation.

Sierra and Vivendi are publishers, they do not make games. Sierra itself is nolonger around aswell. Turbine has always been the developer, they just recent were granted the rights to publish the game itself.
