from Paradox, it sounds like this could be close to the next Pirates!.  yeah, it's a horrible reveal trailer, but they got info below it:

Quote
Features
•Roam the open World with your Pirate crew and pick up missions as you sail the seas.
•Notoriety and fame brings you closer to your ultimate goal: the King of All Pirates
•Battle it out with rival pirates and nations on both land and sea
•Experience life as a pirate through three campaigns and eras
•Gather famous pirates to your crew, but be sure to keep them supplied with rum or they'll side with your rivals
•Select your character from several different Pirate Captains, each with their own unique skills and features!


here is some gameplay shakeycam footage (and part 2), it does show they do have some off the wall concepts

I've never tried a Pirate game as every review I have read on them points out some serious flaws. It would be nice if this broke the string.

well, this is out this week. the main site makes it sound like it may be a little less serious:

Quote
    * Roam the open World with your Pirate crew and pick up missions as you sail the seas.
    * Notoriety and fame brings you closer to your ultimate goal: the King of All Pirates
    * Battle it out with the forces of Black Cove and other colonial nations on both land and sea
    * Select your character from several different Pirate Captains, each with their own unique skills and features
    * Make creative use of some of he wackiest land and sea based weapons ever to grace a Pirate world
    * Varied units and weapons allows You to carry out the battles as You see fit

They released a demo a few weeks back.  I haven't played it, but the response to it on QT3 wasn't that great.  Sounds very much like more an arcadey title.

Gamespot gives it a 3.5 in their review.  Not a good score, but it is a full two points higher than what they gave Street Cleaning Simulator.

I tried the steam demo last night and uninstalled the demo right afterwards. The game is way too arcadey for my taste. The graphic is nice but as for gameplay, I'd rather go back to Sid Meier's Pirates! remake.

It's getting hammered for being a buggy, unpolished mess on the Paradox forums.  It seems MANY players are having major crash problems and the game isn't really balanced at this stage.  From all accounts, it's fun when it works, so it may be worth looking at if/when it's patched up.
