Microsoft’s Sea of Thieves is a blockbuster success from Xbox Studios with over 15 million players since its launch in March 2018. But here’s a number that may surprise you: Over one million people have purchased the game on Steam, the PC-only game service, since it went on sale in early June 2020.
“Sea of Thieves has been played by more than fifteen million players since our launch in March 2018,” Rare’s Joe Neate writes. “We’re also humbled that more people have played Sea of Thieves in the first six months of 2020 than who played in the whole of 2019, which was more than 2018.”
Adding to the success, June 2020 was the game’s biggest month so far, with over 3.3 million players setting sail. And, yes, it’s available on Xbox Game Pass for console, PC, and Ultimate.
Part of this success, surely, is how well Microsoft/Rare supports the game. Like the last two Gears of War titles, Sea of Thieves gamers have been served with a variety of expansions and improvements, including new game play experiences. As Microsoft nots, the game “received five major content expansions in its first year and has continued to grow with monthly content updates. Every expansion and update has been made available to all players free of charge.”
