If it's Wednesday, it must be time for the latest Sea of Thieves Developer Update with Game Producer Joe Neate. One of the more hotly contested issues in Sea of Thieves is mandatory crossplay between XBox One and PC players and how "unfair" it can feel to some. As a result of community feedback and internal discussions, crossplay will become an optional choice for players. This feature should arrive prior to the Arena update that is focused on PvP.
While Rare believes that the "approach is the right one for all our players across the board", not all players are convinced that it's what's best for the game and that it will destroy the crossplay community and reduce the player pool.
You can listen to the rest of the update that includes information about forthcoming changes to combat below.
