Sea of Thieves has sold 2 million copies without Game Pass

Sea of Thieves has sold more than 2 million copies across Windows PC and Xbox One, becoming Microsoft’s fastest selling new IP on current-gen consoles.

“The worldwide excitement for Sea of Thieves has made it the fastest-selling first-party new IP of this generation,” Rare’s Craig Duncan wrote on Xbox Wire. “Having witnessed more than a million players on launch day, our community continues to grow and now has more than two million players.”

Even more amazing is that the number doesn’t include copies distributed via the Xbox Game Pass program.

“Fastest selling IP does not include Game Pass [numbers],” Xbox’s Aaron Greenberg confirmed via Twitter.

Those sales also make Sea of Thieves the best-selling Microsoft Studios first-party title on the Windows 10 platform.

Sea of Thieves is available now on Windows PC and Xbox One.
