The Sea of Thieves Season 2 release date has been locked in for next week. We don't know a whole lot about any new content just yet, but one keen-eyed player spotted something interesting in the short teaser.
Sea of Thieves announced a shift to a seasonal content model late last year. The first season is already well underway and we're soon approaching the time for the second season to kick off. Check out the Sea of Thieves Season 2 teaser trailer to get a taste of what's to come!
Sadly, there's not a whole lot there. The floating skull in the sky is suggestive of a new event of some sort, but one particular element noted in the trailer could create some hilarious hijinks in the next Sea of Thieves season.
After the Sea of Thieves Season 2 release date is revealed, we get treated to a short stinger showing a pirate looking around quizzically on a dock. Another pirate is around the corner and hides under a barrel; it looks like this is going to be a new emote debuting next season as highlighted on Reddit. That's right — pretty soon, any single barrel in the game could be secretly concealing a pirate!
When is the Sea of Thieves Season 2 Start Date?
The Sea of Thieves Season 2 start date will be Thursday, April 15, 2021 — that's a little over a week from today!
You can enjoy many of these new goodies and fun events by buying Sea of Thieves on PC and consoles starting at $39.99 or your regional equivalent. Do bear in mind that while much of this new content will be free, there will also be optional goodies available via the next season's Plunder Pass.
