Sea of Thieves could be released for PlayStation and Switch

Microsoft has reportedly considered porting Sea of Thieves to other platforms, according to multiple insiders.

the Nate the Hate podcast said Microsoft was planning to bring one of its “more acclaimed” first-party games to competing platforms this year.

Responding to this claim, Giant Bomb’s Jeff Grubb said Rare’s Sea of Thieves could be set to make the jump to Sony’s and Nintendo’s consoles.No titles were mentioned at the time, leaving many to speculate that the recently released Hi-Fi Rush could be the one to make the leap, but it appears as though several insiders are tipping Sea of Thieves as the first Xbox exclusive to hit other platforms.

“Sea of Thieves, I’ll say I’ve heard that that was one that might be coming to other platforms,”  Jeff said . “When I first started hearing these rumours, I was like, this is probably about Sea of Thieves, because I’ve heard that could come to Switch and PlayStation”.

The pirate-themed co-op multiplayer game released for Xbox One and PC in March 2018, when it became the first exclusive title from Microsoft to launch on Xbox Game Pass day-and-date with its retail release.

Microsoft said in July 2020 that Sea of Thieves had been played by over 15 million people, cementing its place as “the most successful new IP from Xbox this generation”.

An enhanced version of Sea of Thieves was released for Xbox Series X/S in November 2020, and Rare said in June 2022 that the game had attracted over 30 million players.

Some fans on social media have also speculated that the unnamed Xbox title reportedly headed to rival platforms could be Tango Gameworks‘ Hi-Fi Rush, the action game that hit Microsoft’s consoles this time last year.

Microsoft already has Minecraft on PlayStation and Nintendo platforms too, which will also shortly be joined by a new Call of Duty title. At this time next year, Microsoft will have more than a few Xbox-owned titles available to purchase on PlayStation, and that’s without mentioning the likes of Psychonauts 2, Deathloop, and Ghostwire: Tokyo. Adding Sea of Thieves to the pile isn’t too hard to imagine.Xbox already sells its first-party games on Steam releases, furthering their availability on PC through Xbox Game Pass. Expanding that to other consoles just builds on that strategy.
