The developer of the “pirate” game Sea of Thieves has just revealed that they want the game to still have content to explore even in 2028.
Developer of Sea of Thieves – Rare had a content development plan for the next 5 years of this game. This past March 20th was its 5th birthday, and the studio is ready to think about further times when the age-old Sea of Thieves turns 10.
Rare and Microsoft Studio released Sea of Thieves on PC and Xbox One in 2018, and then in 2020 when the Xbox Series X/S comes out. This multiplayer action-adventure game will turn gamers into pirates floating on the vast seas. Players can complete quests for “commercial companies” in the game, explore islands in search of resources, or battle opponents on the high seas.
Unfortunately, the game was not appreciated by the critics, but the gamers found it very enjoyable. It also enjoyed commercial success and Rare continued to expand it over the years based on regular content updates. Microsoft and Rare are celebrating Sea of Thieves’ 5th anniversary, but the UK-based studio isn’t resting on its laurels. A recent article on Xbox Wire provided an insight into the development of Sea of Thieves, describing the process that led to the game that many players love today. However, the report also reveals that Rare is yet to finish their open-world game, with employees recently sitting down to map out Sea of Thieves updates over the next five years.
While this may seem like a lot of pre-planning, it’s not unheard of, with the article describing how Rare went through a similar process to plan content after its release. Sea of Thieves for the first 5 years. Of course, not all of those ideas turn out to be end products, and Rare’s current plans seem pretty extensive, so it might not be fair to describe Rare as having a clear roadmap. However, the studio has provided some insight into what Rare hopes to pursue in Sea of Thieves content over the next five years. A good idea would be to introduce the smuggling mechanic, with other proposals including a reward system for players protecting others from griefers. The developers are also interested in a mechanism that allows players to take screenshots of the game in the form of paintings.
