A planned feature patch for Sea of Thieves will have to be delayed as Rare attempts to figure out an issue with the PC version of the pirate game. Thus, players will have to wait until next week to see the patch.
So what will players be waiting for with this update? Sea of Thieves is going to be introducing public and private matchmaking to assist with crew formation. Other features include hiding name plates while underwater, rebalanced drop rates, and handing off resources between players.
In addition to discussing the delay, Executive Producer Joe Neate talked about some of the feedback that Rare has received from the community. He apologized for incomplete patch notes and for “visually weak” and incorrectly priced store items. Rare has three teams internally that are working on separate major content updates for this year.
