Sea of Thieves Passes 10 Million Players

Sea of Thieves passed over 10 million players since its launch on March 20, 2018 for PC and Xbox One, adding to the success of the most popular IP from the Xbox One generation.

From Joe Neate, Executive Producer at Rare:

“It’s mind-blowing to think of that many people setting sail on the Sea of Thieves, and it’s all been made possible by the support and passion of our fantastic community.

For everyone at Rare, the Sea of Thieves community represents the very best of what gaming can be. It’s home to players from more than eighty different countries, bringing together gamers on Xbox Game Pass, Xbox One and Windows 10 PC and creating countless stories and moments that people can treasure. Seeing these stories shared through social media or other community spaces is something that inspires the team every day. To every person who’s played Sea of Thieves, thank you.”

In addition, Joe Neate explained that the game’s January update will be centered around the Sea of Thieves community. Titled ‘Legends of the Seas,’ the January update will be available to all players for free beginning on January 15, 2020. The update will celebrate the community, its stories, and will ”feature two limited-edition gifts to mark [the] 10 million player milestone.” Gamers who log into Sea of Thieves between January 15 and January 22 can claim a free custom sail and special new emote.

Moreover, Neate announced that Rare has more “big plans” throughout 2020.

Sea of Thieves is an action-adventure game developed by Rare and published by Microsoft Studios (now Xbox Game Studios) for PC and Xbox One. The game allows players to take the role of a pirate and can be played solo or with a crew of up to four other players.
