In the latest development video, Sea of Thieves Executive Producer Joe Neate has revealed that January has been Sea of Thieves biggest month yet in terms of active users.

Sea of Thieves is one of those games that has been a massive success for Microsoft in the long-run. The game was already quite popular on Xbox and PC (Xbox Store) but the launch on Steam has attracted thousands of new players which resulted in some record-breaking numbers.

In the latest Sea of Thieves News video from Rare, the game's Executive Producer Joe Neate has revealed some details about the concurrent players and monthly active players in Sea of Thieves. In January 2021, Sea of Thieves has seen the biggest monthly active users numbers as well as highest concurrent users since around launch, which is certainly a proof of the game's evolving world.

Neate also promises that this year will be Sea of Thieves' biggest year yet, and he does not only talk about the seasonal content.

"I definitely think this year will be our biggest one yet and seasons is just start of that," he said. "There's lot more to come through the year." 

Neate did not really talk about this content and we will have to wait for proper announcements but it's safe to say that Sea of Thieves players will be excited to hear that plenty of fresh content is coming to the game.

Sea of Thieves is available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC.
