Sea Of Thieves Is A “Multi-Year Journey For Us”, Says Phil Spencer
Aside from the developer diaries, it has been a while since we have seen or heard about the upcoming Xbox One exclusive Sea Of Thieves. Seas Of Thieves will be an MMO based game which will feature infinite possibilities for gameplay.
Microsoft is yet to announce the release date for the game, but Xbox head has praised Rare for its efforts on the game and considers it a multi-year journey.
Speaking with WeWriteThings, Xbox head, Phil Spencer, praised the efforts of Rare on Sea Of Thieves. He praised the studio for growing its community and believes that Sea of Thieves is the right thing for the studio to be doing at the moment.
We’re on a journey with Sea of Thieves in the way that Rare has engaged their community and grown it…The team is managing their technical capability, creative road map and community all at the same time, and we’re going to learn, but I think it’s absolutely the right thing for the team to be doing and I think you’re doing a really good job at it.
He added that Sea Of Thieves has been a multi-year journey for the studio to get to this point and the game will grow into a franchise for Rare in the years to come.
This is a multi-year journey for us. While it has been a multi-year journey to get to this point, and I’m encouraged by what we’ll see this year, the thinking that this is a long-term growth for the franchise for Rare, and frankly our service and platform, you have to go into it that way. Frankly, you have to build your opportunity to invest through that lens.
Sea Of Thieves is an action-adventure MMO in development at Rare and will launch in 2017 exclusively for PC and Xbox One.
