Sea of Thieves discuss playtest experiences – but still no release date in sight

What’s going on right now with the piratey Sea of Thieves? The game is currently in its technical alpha (the best kind of alpha there is!), with the team occasionally posting developer gameplay videos to entertain and enlighten the masses.

In this week’s Tales from the Tavern Podcast, the team discusses those play sessions, the recent additions to the game, and a studio update. The team also hinted at some things to come, such as “putting emergent things into the world to mess with the players.”

Curious about when Sea of Thieves will be coming out? Previously the team had said “early 2017,” but in the show comments, they clarified that “we haven’t announced a release date yet. Fully focused on the Tech Alpha for now!”

Check out the full hour podcast below!

I wouldn’t expect a release date until E3 on the Microsoft stage.

Think Sea of Thieves will turn out like Everquest Next and get canned?

Kind of worrisome with all these delays.

We’re looking at winter holiday/ 1st quarter 2018 release IMHO. I’m okay with it. More features, content and polishing. Even if the big anticipated MMO developers aren’t admitting it, Crowfall, Chronicles, Ashes of Creation, Camelot, etc. We’re not getting any of them this year. It’s going to be a fairly arid spring/summer for MMORPG lovers..

pc testing is getting closer as we got surveys to fill out (standard beta application surveys, what games do you play, how much do you play, whats your dxdiag etc) so that’s a good sign at least.
