Publisher Microsoft and developer Rare announced Sea of Thieves’ new Season 7 has been delayed, only slightly.
Executive producer on Sea of Thieves executive producer Joe Neate confirmed the game’s Season 7 would be delayed until August 4th.
“With such a fundamental update to the game, there is a lot of hidden work to be done in the background,” Joe said. “This is an update that brings in a vast range of new stats to track, and has required a complex partnership across our Game, UI and Services teams to bring it to life.”
He added, “As we started getting closer to the originally stated release date, it became apparent that things were coming in hotter than we liked and there was a real risk of not delivering to the quality and polish we expect, as well as putting undue pressure across the team to get it all over the line. Subsequently, we have made the decision to shift the release date back slightly.”
Luckily, August 4th is not that far away and those hopeful sea captains will only have to suffer a delay of a few weeks before the next major update. Neate also said that the next big adventure, ‘A Hunter’s Cry’ will be out on August 18th.
