How about a large port type set like #6277 Imperial Trading Post?
Seriously - 75% of all LEGO sets gives me a deja vue feeling!
Shipwreck Defense: $9.99
Soldier's Outpost: $19.99, possibly $24.99
Treasure Island: $19.99, possibly $24.99
Soldiers' Fort: $29.99, possibly $34.99 or $39.99
The Brick Bounty: $99.99
Still skeptical at the pricing, I think the naming though is on par with other Pirate sets from years past so it could very well be that the pricing is accurate. I just cannot wait for some official release from LEGO to come out so I can start my dedicated savings account.
I think this pirate theme is gonna follow the structure of the last castle sets.
Shipwreck Defense is going to be similar to #70400 Forest Ambush. Probably a little Crows nest and a treasure chest with 2 of each faction figures
Soldiers' Outpost: hopefully its going to be something like Sabre Island like @peter1975 said. Either that, or just a wall with a gate or prison cell, like they always give us in castle sets, or an updated #6259 Broadside's Brig
The rest I'm not to sure, but however they turn out I'll definitely be buying them all.
@CapnRex101 Lego has said directly that they repeat a lot of sets every few years. I'm actually glad that they do, as a parent I can happily afford to purchase a classic set like Castle or Pirates for my kids without having to shell out hundreds on ebay or bricklink. (Oh wait I already do shell out hundreds.)
I did prefer Castle Kingdoms over the latest Castle, I hope we see some Forestmen sets again in the future!
At least this one hasn't red/white sails.... ;) But hey, Pirates are populair Arghhh....
I do hope TLC has done a better job!!
That said, if you try and put too much variety and innovation into Pirates, you get further away from Classic Pirates, which is what's selling this to a decent part of the audience.
For me, what made truly Classic Pirates so appealing was all the "newness" these sets provided and how surprised we were to have say the Carribean Clipper or Eldorado Fortress. We need more surprises and "newness" today.

There are some good points in the lineup, but overall it's disappointing
I like them as I missed the original pirates, as when they were released I just became a teenager and Lego took a back seat to other "pursuits".
I noticed in a couple of the pictures there appears to be a new colour for the 1 x 2 with Masonry Profile (Brick Profile) #98283 looks to be Reddish Brown?
The pirates sets look pretty cool. I can't wait to see the actual prints for the minifigs.
Neat seeing the creator toy shop set due out as well as some of the city sets, but it looks like LEGO is 'junior-izing' their sets again, at least that have that kind of look.
So good chance that some of these sets will look different once released.
I liked the small shipwreck though
(Also those elves sets, nice idea but urgh! They look horrendous)
