If you’re wondering when we’ll hear something new about Sea of Thieves, the answer is “very soon,” as shared today by Xbox Games Marketing General Manager Aaron Greenberg during Microsoft’s Extra Life marathon on Mixer.
Greenberg mentioned that he “definitely encourages people to tune-in for The Game Awards” as there will be “some more news on Sea of Thieves there.”
He did not specify further details on the actual nature of the news, but there are plenty of possibilities. Considering that the technical alpha is about to end, it’s probable that we’ll hear about the beta, or maybe we’ll finally get more information about the actual release of the game. Of course, this is just my speculation, so take this with the customary grain of salt.
In the meanwhile, if you want to see more of the game, you can also enjoy the latest gameplay recorded by the developers, a recent gameplay trailer topped by the #BeMorePirate hashtag, the previous trailer showing the latest content update, the panel from New York Comic Con with the reveal of the Pirate Code, another trailer explaining what the game is all about, one more gameplay video, and a gallery of semi-recent screenshots. You should also take a look at our video interview with Rare Studio Director Craig Duncan.
Sea of Thieves will launch in early 2018 for Xbox One, Xbox One X and PC. No specific release date has been announced for the moment.
The Game Awards will be broadcasted from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on December 7th, 2017. The show will start at 5:30 PM PST or 8:30 PM EST.
