Sea of Thieves is an open-world pirate adventure where you can find treasure on your own or with friends. There are plenty of other encounters like a megalodon to keep you busy. There's a lot to do, and the title's popularity continues to grow due to its excellent post-launch support. Since Sea of Thieves is part of Xbox Game Pass, it's hard to know just how populated the title is. Luckily, Xbox Games Marketing Manager Aaron Greenberg discussed some relative statistics.
Recently, Gamereactor managed to interview Greenberg. During the conversation, he revealed that Sea of Thieves was a "top-performing" title. You can read part of the statement below.
While it's unclear where Sea of Thieves exactly stands, it's good to know that it's one of the "top-performing" games on the service. If you take a look at the "Most played games (opens in new tab)" on the Microsoft Store, it's frequently in the top 10 when it comes to Xbox Game Pass listings.
The next Sea of Thieves event starts on September 11 and it's called Smuggler's Fortune. It was previously referred to by another name, but this more accurately reflects what it's about.
