You've got to think that game was a disaster for JJP. It took FOREVER to get out the door, had a bunch of poorly-conceived and pointless mechs (who gives a shit if the spinner isn't actually three spinners?) that were expensive failures, and even after the game was "finished" it seemed to be a headache for many owners.
I know the game is suddenly super expensive now due to reverse-FOMO, but still, I'd guess it would take more than a handful of would-be depositors to get this one back on the line again. THey seem to have their hands full producing a game that actually works, that people actually want, and that they can actually make a profit with, so why not just let them do that? Clearly, POTC wasn't in line with the company purpose of "staying in business" so not sure why people think they'd want to go back to that at this point.
