In June 2020, Microsoft Studios released the acclaimed Sea of Thieves on Steam and since then, the game has kept getting bigger and attracting more fans. Even though it’s one of the main highlights of the Xbox Game Pass, many gamers prefer to buy the game on Steam, and this week, we found out that it has sold over 5 million units on Valve’s digital store.
As a way of thanking players, everyone who logs into the game by December 29th will receive a new emote for free.
Even as we finish celebrating the grand milestone of 25 million Sea of Thieves players, we’re already rolling out the barrel again as we surpass five million units sold on Steam! With Sea of Thieves being our first game developed in-house for PC as well as Xbox, we’re absolutely delighted to see such a huge influx of new pirates starting their adventures since the game made it to Steam in June last year. No matter which platform you play Sea of Thieves on, it would never have had this success without the support of you, the players – so all we can say is thank you!
Rare always tries to show its affection for its fans and the growing success of Sea of Thieves is proof that the feeling is reciprocated.
We’re also especially pleased with the growth of spaces like our official Discord server, which is nearing 300,000 members! If you’re ever looking for fellow crewmates to sail with, lore specialists to muse on your theories, or simply a place to hang out, these are welcoming spaces for pirates of all stripes.
