We're going to look into multiplayer support in bite-sized chunks. We don't have the development team to drop in a full-featured multiplayer mode all at once, but we can incrementally build and test bits of multiplayer that will hopefully eventually combine to form that full-featured mode we all want.
Keep an eye out for updates, Canny will automatically notify you if you're subscribed to this post. We're counting on the community to give us feedback along the way to help us make this best VR multiplayer pirate experience out there!
