Flying Lab launches casual arm

New division to focus on "family friendly" MMO in partnership with Upper Deck

Flying Lab Software has announced its expansion into a new market with the creation of a new division – Flying Lab Casual.

Flying Lab Casual will focus on developing casual gaming MMOs, with its first venture set to be a family friendly virtual world built in partnership with Upper Deck. The Pirates of the Burning Sea developer expects to announce the title in a matter of weeks.

"Flying Lab Casual gives our company and its partners the ability to take our vast online experience and apply it to other arenas, in this case a more family friendly MMO environment," said Russell Williams, CEO.

"The Casual division has its own core team that has grown out of the talented development team and success of Pirates of the Burning Sea. This new division not only expands our company and its audience reach, but also gives our developers a chance to work on new genres and different types of games."
