Sea of Thieves Has Reached A Whopping 40 Million Players

Expert Verified By

Major Milestone Ahead of The PS5 Launch!

Story Highlights
  • Sea of Thieves has hit a major milestone and has managed to reach 40 million players. 
  • The pirate game has reached the milestone just a few days before the PS5 version releases.
  • The beta was very popular on the PS5, and the full game is expected to follow suit. 

Sea of Thieves has managed to reach a huge player base. Rare has announced that their pirate title has managed to exceed 40 million players, which is huge, considering the title is heading towards a PlayStation launch in just over a month.

Why it matters: This milestone highlights the benefits of Xbox Game Pass, with Microsoft reaching millions through offerings on the subscription and premium purchases across various platforms.

Sea of Thieves offers brilliant ship customization and combat.

The studio took to its official website to write a heartfelt note to thank the players. They also thanked their team, who has delivered over 100 updates to keep the title going since launch. There’s also a lot more to come.

Furthermore, the studio expressed excitement about the prospect of expanding the community further. The PS5 port for Sea of Thieves releases later this month and will undoubtedly grow the pirate base even more.

Rare has provided boosted awards to celebrate the milestone. This includes renown, gold, reputation, and more. The team is also preparing for the upcoming launch of Season 12.

Hi-Fi Rush Sea of Thieves
Hi-Fi Rush and Sea of Thieves are coming to PlayStation 5 as a part of Xbox going multiplatform.

If there’s anything to guarantee its success on PS5, the game recently launched a beta, where the servers broke due to the flux of players. This, in addition to strong pre-orders, indicates that the full launch will be even more impactful.

This is also a great business move as far as Xbox is concerned. While they haven’t managed to overthrow the sales of PlayStation, they are emerging as a more popular publisher.

As Sea of Thieves approaches its next season, it has a full set of opportunities ahead. This game has always led Xbox’s live-service lineup, so this milestone might not be all that special if the game explodes in popularity after releasing on PlayStation and breaks even more records.
