The developer is known for many famous franchises including Conker and Banjo-Kazooie. However, in recent years, the team focused on developing Kinect games for Xbox One and Xbox 360. When Phil Spencer became Head of Xbox in 2014, he got the studio working on a new franchise. Sea of Thieves is a shift for the developer and it's a concept the team hasn't tackled before.
Today, Titan Comics announced that they're bringing Microsoft's series to bookstores at around the same time it arrives on Xbox One and Windows 10. According to a report by IGN, the first issue will be available for purchase in March 2018. The Sea of Thieves comic will follow two competing crews of pirates, bound by a shared past and a single destiny, as they sail the sea in a race to track down an ancient treasure. Along the way they'll deal with undead hordes, devious traps, and their own bitter rivalries.
Sea of Thieves has been delayed a few times but recently we recieved a final release date. As announced at The Game Awards 2017, the game is now scheduled to launch on March 20, 2018. Sea of Thieves will also support native 4K on Xbox One X, utilizing the highest settings found on PC.
