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.
