Sea of Thieves Is Coming to PlayStation®5

It's true! We're welcoming a whole new community to the pirate way of life this April…

Ready to meet plenty more pirates on the seas? New crews will soon arrive seeking fortune and adventure as Sea of Thieves opens up to PlayStation®5 owners! Part of a broader Xbox initiative in which we’re delighted to be involved, this will bring countless fresh faces to our pirate playground and, thanks to cross play implementation, allow everyone on the seas to keep on sailing together now and well into the future.

April 30th is the launch date to mark in your calendars, with the upcoming Season 12 being PS5® owners’ first full Season on the seas, and the game is available to wishlist from February 22nd on that platform.

As a studio we’re hugely excited about this opportunity, and ready to tackle the challenge of delivering content to a brand new audience. Millions of players have flocked to the Sea of Thieves over the last six years on Xbox and Steam, and it’s incredible to once again be in the position of welcoming an entire new community onto our shores.

What makes it even more of a landmark moment is that while Rare has made games for many consoles, computers and handhelds in its 40-year history, this will be the first time a Rare game has ever launched on a PlayStation platform. Join senior Sea of Thieves team members in the video below as they discuss their hopes for how this move will strengthen the game for all players!

We can genuinely say that there’s never been a better time to set sail with us. The team has dedicated years to making Sea of Thieves the best it can be with regular free content updates, offering everything from new Voyages, new tools and new islands to sprawling story-focused Tall Tales, including crossovers with other legendary pirate properties. We’ve even introduced whole new ways to play, like Safer Seas mode for pirates still finding their sea legs, and we have plans to keep adding features and improving the experience for a long time yet.

Players who take the plunge can expect to find a new family in the Sea of Thieves community, a vast and welcoming place that’s endlessly rewarding to explore. We’d encourage anyone unfamiliar with the game to start seeing the sights by following us on social channels, signing up for the free newsletter and checking out the Affiliate Alliance for local or like-minded groups to join.

Sea of Thieves is available to wishlist from February 22nd for PS5® owners. More information on launch bundles, editions and activities will be arriving soon, as will further details on all the treats that players can expect from Season 12. Spread the word to your friends on different platforms – we look forward to seeing more of you than ever on the seas this April!
