Sea of Thieves Retardes Season Seven and Captaincy Update to Aug
ea Of Thieves‘ 7th season of content was initially scheduled to launch next week. However, Rare announced that it would push it and the Captaincy update to next month, on Aug. 4, 2022.
This information is sourced from a blog post on the official game website. Joe Neate, the Executive Producer, explains that the Captaincy update will allow you to customize captain’s quarters on board your ship. The update required extensive background work across the Sea of Thieves game, the UI and services teams. As the July 21 release date approached, it became apparent that the team needed to take more time to finish the update.
Neate wrote, “Running Sea of Thieves is an ongoing live experience where we still learn new things every day but we will always think about what is best for our players and our developers alike.” We believe that the decision to change this release is the best one to provide the best experience possible for all of you and to ensure we continue operating with a healthy, sustainable approach.”
Due to the delay in Season Seven, the next major update will now be two weeks before A Hunter’s Cry’s limited-time Adventure. It will be available on Aug 18. Those who keep up with Rare’s pirate games will be busy next month.

Rare is also working with Everwild. However, it’s been some time since we last saw the game in any Xbox showcases. Although it isn’t a Banjo Koazooieplatformer, this is still a nice sight to see the studio working with a new IP.
