Xbox Games Marketing General Manager Aaron Greenberg let some news slip during Microsoft’s Extra Life marathon on Mixer. Greenberg mentioned that he “definitely encourages people to tune-in for The Game Awards” as there will be “some more news on Sea of Thieves there.”
Sea of Thieves has been in Technical Alpha for most of 2017, but that is due to finish this month. Could this news be details of the Beta, or more hopefully, details of an official release date. In fact, I tweeted Rare studios “Gamerboss” this morning indicating that I hoped it would be a release date announcement and he responded with liking the tweet. I know that doesn’t make it official but maybe, just maybe!
My fingers are crossed for a release date!
