Hi everyone, I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe. I wanted to share an update on Sea of Thieves plans as we head towards our next update, coming August 19th.

As we came off the back of our July release, we had an opportunity to assess our planned set of features for August – and it quickly became apparent that everything was coming in a little hot.

Since we started working from home, we've definitely had to be a bit more flexible with our plans for each month, and as such we've decided to move our key planned features back to our September release.

Because of this, tomorrow's update focuses on a range of bug fixes and quality of life improvements while rolling out a series of live events to mark the Summer of Sea of Thieves. There will not be a Pirate Emporium refresh as part of this update.

Keep your eyes on our Sea of Thieves channels to learn more about the live events on their way, and remember you can always check the Sea of Thieves Events Hub for the latest live events and Daily Bounties to tackle.

Thanks to everyone for their understanding and ongoing support as we continue to work through this unique situation. We have seen so many players, both new and old, head to the Sea of Thieves over the summer, and we continue to love hearing about all your stories and adventures.

As always, see you on the seas!
