Update: April 2, 2020 Rare has officially confirmed (opens in new tab) that Sea of Thieves is coming to Steam.
While many Xbox Game Studios titles have made their way over to Steam, there's been one big exception: Rare's pirate simulator, Sea of Thieves. It's been available on Xbox One and through the Windows Store (or Xbox Game Pass for PC) since launch, but unlike State of Decay 2, Halo Wars and Gears 5, it has not yet made its way over to Valve's storefront. That appears to be finally changing.
There's no release date at the moment, it just says that it's "coming soon", so we should see an official announcement in the near future. Sea of Thieves has been a massive success for Xbox and Rare, with the game hitting over 10 million players earlier this year.
