Rare's pirate game Sea of Thieves gets release window

It's mizzen 2016.

Rare's Xbox One and Windows 10 pirate game Sea of Thieves will be released in or around February 2017, Microsoft has said.

Xbox Games Marketing boss Aaron Greenberg talked about the game's release-window during an interview with Kinda Funny (via COG Connected and Videogamer).

"Not far after that we get things like Halo Wars 2 in February and then we just keep kind of cranking as we go through. Sea of Thieves is coming out in that window, Scalebound, a lot more titles," Greenberg said.

Halo Wars 2 will be released 21st February for Windows 10 and Xbox One.

Sea of Thieves was in Microsoft's E3 2016 press conference. We saw a multiplayer demo of the cartoony multiplayer pirating game that involved collaboratively drinking grog, preparing and sailing ships, and then doing battle with other vessels. It looked like a lot of fun.

We've got a big old E3 2016 guide article where we've compiled links to all the major stories from the event.
