Sea of Thieves is a major Xbox One and Windows 10 exclusive. It was last shown at E3 2016 and the game looks in good shape. However, developers are yet to announce a release date.

But earlier, fans got excited when the official Xbox Australia Twitter page announced a February release. According to a post, Sea of Thieves will release for Xbox One and Windows 10 in February 2017.

The entire internet started discussing the title but it didn’t take long for Microsoft to tone down the excitement. Aaron Greenberg tweeted that Microsoft is yet to announce a release date. Confirming that Xbox Australia’s post was a mistake.


It looks like someone at Xbox Australia got a little too excited for Sea of Thieves. Or, it is the actual release date but Microsoft isn’t ready to confirm just yet.

Sea of Thieves Supports Xbox Play Anywhere

Whenever it comes out, Sea of Thieves will be available for Xbox One and Windows 10. It is going to take advantage of Microsoft’s Xbox Play Anywhere program. Under the program, buying a copy for PC will grant you the Xbox version for free and vice versa.
