Sea of Thieves Has Over 15 Million Players
According to Rare Studios, Sea of Thieves has surpassed 15 million players, with over a million coming from the new platform for the title, Steam. June was the biggest month for the pirate simulator when it comes to active players. Rare Studios stated that around 3.3 million gamers were sailing through Sea of Thieves in June and they have already sold over one million units on Steam, regularly appearing in the top selling and most played games charts. Sea of Thieves is available for PC and Xbox One and is part of the extensive Game Pass lineup.
“It was only in January of this year when we shared that 10 million people had played the game!” said Rare Studios’ Executive Producer Joe Neate. “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. Last month, June 2020, was also the biggest month so far for Sea of Thieves in terms of active players, with more than 3.3M players setting sail. A contributing factor to this growth has been our recent launch on Steam. We’ve been blown away by the support we’ve seen from the Steam community, with over 1M copies of the game having been sold so far and the game regularly appearing in the top selling and most played games charts.”
“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,” continued Joe Neate. “It’s a game that we love making, and there’s plenty more to come.” Considering Sea of Thieves has blown up since moving to Steam, it seems like Rare Studios made the right move in joining the PC platform.
