Sea of ​​Thieves received a 50% discount until the end of January amid a jump in popularity on Twitch

In the Microsoft store, the game costs 30 dollars.

As executive producer of Sea of ​​Thieves told Joe Neath in the developers blog, since the release of the Shrouded Spoils update in November 2018, game performance has begun to grow rapidly.

Neath did not provide accurate data, but noted the increased number of new and monthly players, as well as the increased popularity of Sea of ​​Thieves among streamers on Twitch and Mixer.

According to The Most Watched Games website, in January, the Rare game takes 11th place in the top of the most popular games on Twitch with more than 15 million hours of viewing. This is several million more World of Warcraft, Atlas and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

In many ways, such a jump was due to the fact that Sea of ​​Thieves began to devote time to such popular streamers as DrDirespect and Summit1g, which even managed to bypass Ninja in the number of paid subscriptions to Twitch.

On February 5, during the regular release of Inside Xbox, the developers of Sea of ​​Thieves will talk about upcoming updates, and on February 6, a bug fix will be released, after which the game will have to be reinstalled. Her “weight” at the same time decreases several times.

The Sea of ​​Thieves update will require reinstallation, but will reduce the size of the game by 2-3 times
