The pirate-themed co-op multiplayer game released for Xbox One and PC in March 2018, when it became the first exclusive title from Microsoft to launch on Xbox Game Pass day-and-date with its retail release.
June 2020 was Sea of Thieves’ biggest month yet, with the game reaching over 3.3 million players.
The title has sold over 1 million copies since releasing on Steam on June 3, 2020.
“On behalf of all of us at Rare, I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who’s ever played Sea of Thieves for helping to get us this far,” Rare executive producer Joe Neate told Xbox Wire. “It’s a game that we love making, and there’s plenty more to come.”
Rare is also working on a “truly original” new IP set in a “natural and magical world” called Everwild.
