UPDATE April 6: Sea of Thieves Season 2 start date officially announced.
Sea of Thieves kicked off 2021 with notable changes to its live service model. Although monthly updates persist, they now support Seasons that last for about three months. With Season One steadily approaching its conclusion, players are likely wondering about what the Season 2 start and end dates might be.
Regardless of when it begins and ends, Sea of Thieves' Season 2 will likely introduce a new Plunder Pass featuring new rewards that players can earn by simply playing the game. A new Voyage, or other major gameplay addition is also bound to arrive; or, at least so we expect, based on how Season One debuted.
Rare has remained tight-lipped about Sea of Thieves' Season 2 for a good while, only revealing its start date in early April. Few official details currently hint towards when its end date might occur, which isn't ideal for pirates who value planning ahead. Knowing when it starts, we can try our hand at estimating when the new season might end, based on what we know about the new live content structure.
Season One began on January 28, developer Rare saying that it was meant to last for "approximately three months." It then revealed that the Season 2 start date is slated for April 15, which is 11 weeks later.
Using our working eyeball, the brain bits that weren't touched by enemy cutlasses, and the power of the almighty calendar, we're expecting Sea of Thieves' Season 2 to end on July 1. Here's a better look at our current estimations:
- Season One End Date/Confirmed Season 2 Start Date: April 15
- Season 2 End Date: July 1
The developer can, naturally, shift some things around, potentially taking a short break between seasons, extending them, or taking extra time to prepare content. We'll update this article with new details regarding Sea of Thieves' Season 2 start and end dates as soon as we spot them.
