Sea of Thieves Loses Half of PS5 Player Base in One Month image

A Quick Plunge in Pirates’ Popularity? Here's why the Sea of Thieves player count dropped by a staggering 58.6% within the first few weeks.

Analysts have taken stock and the numbers aren't looking good for the high-seas adventure game, Sea of Thieves. In a surprising turn of events, over 50% of the game's active player base on the PlayStation 5 has evaporated in just a month since the game's debut launch.

To be precise, the number of active pirates, err players, plummeted a whopping 58.6% compared to the figures reported during the initial week of release. Now, that's what we call the wind quickly blowing out of the sails!

Why did we not realize it? It seems that gamers have simply exhausted all the content Sea of Thieves had to offer and jumped ship. They’ve set their sights on newer, fresher titles in the gaming services market, such as XDefiant and MultiVersus.

It's interesting to see how quickly the tides can turn in the high-stakes world of gaming. Sea of Thieves, once a crowning glory gaining rapid momentum soon after its release, now seems to be floundering in uncharted waters.

The ultimate question is, can the developers plot a new course to regain lost ground, or will Sea of Thieves continue to take on water in the hyper-competitive PS5 marketplace? Only time will tell.

In the meantime, our hearts go out to the stranded pirates yearning for more content. Here's hoping they find safe harbor in one of the newer gaming services mentioned.
