Sea of Thieves has been out now for three years, but it seems to be bigger than ever. Rare announced today that the month of June saw a record number of players in June 2021. Over 4.8 million players set sail during June.

Joe Neate, executive producer of the studio says that the team has been "bowled over" from the support of the community. Players seems to have turned out in droves for the release of Sea of Thieves: A Pirate's Life. This is the content that added in some pretty awesome Pirates of the Caribbean story content for free to everyone.

From your reactions on social media to your fan art and stories of exploring the five new Tall Tales, it’s been amazing – and all this excitement resulted in our busiest ever month on the seas, with June seeing 4.8 million active pirates out on the water!

To all of you who’ve recently cast off for the very first time, jumped back in after a break or simply never stepped away from your regular Voyages, thank you from all of us and we hope that Sea of Thieves: A Pirate’s Life (and the surprise of its unveiling!) was everything you could have wanted from a crossover on this scale.
To keep the momentum going, Sea of Thieves will have a double gold and rep weekend from August 20-23. The team also just released the rather hearty 2.2.1 update for Sea of Thieves today. It's a pretty long changelog, so be sure to check it out to see all the bug fixes, improvements, new cosmetics, and additions added to the game.
