If you've been having issues today logging onto Sea Of Thieves for Xbox and PC, don't worry, everyone is. Apparently, the popularity of the game was more than developers bargained for as the servers have come to a standstill tonight from the number of people logging in to play. Below is the most recent update on the matter as of when we wrote this article, which came a few hours after it was announced they were temporarily suspending new players joining the game.
For those playing and those joining we are continuing to work on improvements to the game in order to ensure the playing experience will be optimal. Please be patient as we are working on updates. pic.twitter.com/wUc8xw8Wmk

Because this is an issue that's happening throughout the day and into the night, the process to fix it is ongoing and there's no way to tell when it will be repaired. Right now we say if you can get on and play, consider yourselves lucky. If you can't, be patient, it's not like this is the first multiplayer game in history that didn't expect these many people to be online at once right at the start and pull servers to a halt.
