Now you’ll know when you’re sailing with a developer crew in Sea of Thieves

sea of thieves rare developer sails

The developers of Sea of Thieves have been sailing their own seas incognito since the game’s launch, presumably cronching on bananas and thieving the hard-earned booty of their most dedicated players – at least, that’s what I’d be doing if I had intimate knowledge of my own game. Now, however, it’ll be a quite a bit easier to see them coming.

Rare devs will be sailing under their own banner on those pirate-infested waters, with a bright blue sail painted with their logo. They’ve apparently had the sail for some time, but they’re just now advertising their approach.

A handful of players are miffed that the developers have access to a bit of content that they don’t, but look at it this way: you can take out your aggression by opening fire and scuttling their ship as soon as you see the blue and gold peeking over the horizon. Hopefully, there’ll soon be a reward for hunting down the game’s makers, or maybe you could just walk up and ask nicely for something neat.

With early server woes a bit more under control, the folks at Rare probably have a bit more time to check in on their own game firsthand, but there’s plenty more on the way. In the short term, that includes private games and a strict crackdown on hackers, and there’s set to be more details on upcoming content updates sometime this week.
