Of those over 15 million players, it is indicated that last June there were over 3.3 million active players, which is a pretty good number for a game that started with very little content.
It is both exciting and humbling to share with you that “Sea of Thieves” has been played by over fifteen million players since our release in March 2018.
The way the game and its community has continued to grow has been incredible to watch. In January of this year alone we shared that 10 million people have played the game! We are also honored by the fact that more people have played Sea of Thieves in the first six months of 2020 than those who played throughout the year 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 3.3 million players setting sail. One factor that has contributed to this growth has been our recent launch on Steam. We have been surprised by the support we have seen from the Steam community, with over 1 million copies of the game sold so far and the game regularly appearing on the bestselling and most played game lists.
On behalf of all of us at Rare, I would like to thank everyone who has played Sea of Thieves for helping us get here. It is a game that we love to make, and there is much more to come. See you on the seas.
