All platforms have surpassed 15 million players.
Sea of Thieves sales figures

Sea of Thieves has managed to sell a whopping 1 million units just on Steam since it was released there on June 3, 2020.

To date, Sea of Thieves has now surpassed over 15 million players across all platforms since its release back in March 2018. This includes Xbox One, the Windows 10 Store version, the Steam version, and those who played the game through Xbox Game Pass and Game Pass Ultimate. Even still, this 15 million figure is an increase of 5 million new players just this year alone.

This bit of hype comes courtesy of the Xbox Wire and Rare executive producer Joe Neate.

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. It’s a game that we love making, and there’s plenty more to come. See you on the seas.
