Why are the Sea of Thieves servers down for maintenance? That's the big question everyone is looking for this morning. The servers are currently down, so what is the Server Status? Are the developers currently working on getting it back online?
Some of the errors you might've come across while attempting to play Sea of Thieves are Sea of Thieves Greybeard, Sea of Thieves Fishbeard, or Sea of Thieves Bronzebeard. These signify connectivity problems. So, is Sea of Thieves down for maintenance, and if so, why?
Sea of Thieves Server Status
The Sea of Thieves Servers are now offline, as maintenance is underway and likely to last for a couple of hours.
"The Sea of Thieves servers are now offline so that the Vaults of the Ancients can be sealed, the good doggos let loose and the island banners shrunk (if you want). Enjoy a grog or two, we'll let you know once the seas are safe to sail once more!" reads a recent tweet.
