Sea Of Thieves Celebrates Player Milestone & Third Anniversary

Microsoft and Rare revealed a couple of awesome things for Sea Of Thieves this week as the game has hit a specific milestone. The game has officially surpassed 20 Million players since it launched back in March 2018, hitting a new player record for the title. What's more, it came right in time for the game's third anniversary, which the team will be celebrating with a ton of additions for you to get in on until March 25th. Along with a thank you to the fans at the link above, here's all the information for the anniversary festivities!
