What does this mean?

Not much was said about the game’s possible sequel but that doesn’t all mean that it’s not in the conversation! Although yes, it isn’t official or it hasn’t been hinted or announced at all, there is still a high chance that Sea of Thieves is indeed getting a sequel!

Sea of Thieves 2 now being in the works isn’t a total discussion but it’s also not impossible! For now, information is minimal as to the plan with Sea of Thieves, but rumors have surfaced about the sequel and its possible release date.

Release date?

Rumor has it that Sea of Thieves 2 may be released sometime in the year 2026. That is IF the developers were to announce the game sooner but if not, the release date may be later than 2026.

For now, the best information we could gather would be that 2026 is most likely the release date if the developers will announce the game somewhere this year or 2024. Given that information, this is not official, however, the rumors circulating the release of Sea of Thieves 2 seem to be increasing in both fame and attention! Aside from this, 2026 being the possible release date also seem to be the most reasonable year!

Of course, the release date also depends on what year the developers plan to announce the game itself so it’s still open to change.

Is a sequel to be expected?

Information on Sea of Thieves 2 and its release date is very limited so we cannot say for sure if we’re to expect an actual announcement. For now, it is only safe to say that rumors are floating about the sequel being a strong possibility.

What can we expect from the sequel?


Aside from a different storyline to follow or a different time setting, the sequel could have a different set of mechanics compared to its predecessor, Sea of Thieves.

Sea of Thieves already has an amazing system of combat but Sea of Thieves 2’s combat system could have more mechanics and strategies for players to enjoy and learn. This would be one of the biggest differences if you were to compare the two games! There could be a new weapon to use aside from your typical guns and canons or there could also be a new melee weapon! The list of possibilities is endless!

Bounty Hunting

Another one of Sea of Thieves 2’s unique features would be the inclusion of Bounty Hunting. Like all RPG games and Multiplayer games, thieves and cons exist and Sea of Thieves also has its fair share of them! Having a Bounty system would not only level the playing field but it would also give the game a whole new feel! Hunting down thieves for a good sum of cash and if you’re a thief yourself, live a life on the run and be an outlaw!

This mechanic can also bring more people together as they hunt for thieves and griefers trying to steal from people who got their booty fair and square! Join together and hunt for the goons and claim your reward!

Another thing about the Bounty system would be the other side of the conversation which is players having the opportunity to have the roles of Thieves! It is Sea of Thieves after all.

With the Bounty system, other players can not only be hunters but they can also have the chance to be the thieves to be caught! Where’s the fun in getting caught? Running and don’t get caught in the first place! The more you steal, the more wanted you are, and the more you run, the more chances to steal!

As for the hunters, the more they hunt, the more known they become among the hunters as well as the more money they get from it! Could be so much fun huh?

Brand New Weapons

Aside from the new Combat and Bounty systems, players may be able to enjoy a new set of weapons to use against their enemies or to protect their loot!

Weapons from the first Sea of Thieves may also make a comeback as well as other treasures from the original game but aside from the OGs, there would be many more little toys to enjoy like new canons, guns, swords, knives, everything!

Animal Buddies!

In the original Sea of Thieves, players can befriend a bunch of animals as their sidekicks in adventures ranging from man’s best friend, dogs to even fun little birds!

Sea of Thieves 2 could have way more in terms of animal familiars perhaps a rare dragon or a cat with a rare pattern! Aside from the animals themselves, some basic animals could have different rarity to them. For example, a player could find a rare class dog to have as their friend.

Possible Differences Between Sea of Thieves and Sea of Thieves 2: Speculations!

Sea of Thieves and Sea of Thieves 2 could have so much in common as well as differences. Storyline, characters, mechanics, timeline, as well as weaponry, treasure to find and so much more. As of now, we can’t fully tell the possible features of the rumored Sea of Thieves 2 but it’s safe to say that the sequel would be one to be enjoyed!

We’d love to see Sea of Thieves 2 become a massively multiplayer game where players will be able to explore vast open worlds without the limitations we see in the current game. Removing the “lobby” style game we see now and introducing large servers capable of hosting many more players. Potentially even larger ships!?

Yes! Sea of Thieves 2 would also likely be having brand-new graphics as well as a more realistic feel to bring that life of pirating to life for players. With this, players can expect to enjoy way more of the life of piracy in Sea of Thieves 2. For now, we should all stay tuned and await the next chapter of adventure at sea.
