It needs a little more time.
Sea of Thieves Season 7 has been postponed to August 2022, Rare announced today.
“With such a fundamental update to the game, there’s a lot of hidden work to be done in the background. This is an update that brings a wide range of new stats to track, and requires a complex collaboration between our Game, UI and Services teams to bring it to life,” Rare’s Joe Neate said in a new update.
“As we got closer to the originally stated release date, it became clear that things were coming in hotter than we wanted and there was a real risk that we wouldn’t deliver the quality and shine we expected, as well as undue pressure being put on worldwide. team to get everything over the line. We then made the decision to slightly shift the release date to August 4.”
The content – which will allow players to name their own ships among other new features – was originally expected on July 21.
Sea of Thieves is now available on Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Cloud Gaming. Expect season 7 starting August 4.
