Earlier this year, Rare shared that Sea of Thieves was coming to Steam sometime later in 2020. That time is coming soon, as Xbox announced today that Sea of Thieves is set to release on Steam on June 3, 2020. It'll be $40 and include all the content released for the Xbox One and Windows 10 versions so far.
You can check out the trailer put together to mark the occasion below.
The Steam version of Sea of Thieves is going to have full crossplay with the Xbox One and Windows 10 versions, so there's plentiful pirate pals to pillage. Because the Steam version will still use your Xbox Live account, if you want to buy Sea of Thieves on Steam after playing on Xbox or Windows 10 until now, all your progress will carry over.

Sea of Thieves has received numerous updates since its initial release, with some of the latest content in the Ships of Fortune bringing arguably the most important addition: pet cats!

I still wonder what made people who want to play this game wait for the Steam release. -They're on Windows 7 or 8 which is insane.
-They hate the Windows Store beyond any semblance of rational thought.
It didn't help that the game ended up being underwhelming so now there's little incentive to buy
I agree that when launched it was underwhelming, but since launch it's had several fixes and added features. It's a much better game now and has gained a lot of positive steam (pun intended).
Woohoo! More people to steal fr- I mean, play with.
