Sea Of Thieves Has Hit 40 Million Players Right Before Its PS5 Release

Plenty more pirates coming into port!

Sea of Thieves has reached an absolutely massive player milestone after just over six years of high-seas shenanigans on Xbox and PC, with developer Rare announcing that the game has seen over 40 million players across both platforms since launch.

The achievement comes right as the game is about to spread to even more players too, with the game’s PlayStation 5 debut peg(leg)ged for April 30th. The game is available to pre-order on the PlayStation Store right now, and will include 4K/60FPS visuals, DualSense features, account cross-over and cross-play with the other platforms.

“40 million players across Xbox, Windows 10 and Steam is an amazing milestone to be able to talk about, and of course it wouldn’t have happened without you – our brilliant, positive and welcoming community, who continue to surprise and impress us with your creativity and antics out on the waves,” wrote Joe Neate, Executive Producer at Rare in a blog post celebrating the news.

“That said, I also want to take this opportunity to offer heartfelt thanks to the team, who’ve worked so hard to deliver over a hundred free updates since launch and have plenty more excitement and innovation on the horizon. Season 12 is almost here, and the new additions like throwing knives and the Bone Caller are going to transform our sandbox yet again.

“I’m also excited about getting to expand our community even further, as we’re just days away from launching on PlayStation®5 and introducing a whole new plethora of pirates to our shared world. The positivity and excitement coming out of our Closed Beta was infectious, and I can’t wait for even more fresh faces to arrive starting next week.”
