Microsoft has been promoting Sea of Thieves as a flagship title for Xbox Game Pass subscription service from very beginning. SoT is a quirky pirate simulator that initially garnered mixed reception but became better with a series of updates.

During its two year-long run, pirates have fended off killer Kraken, fought Megalodons and looted Skeleton Forts throughout many adventures. There will be more of these legendary tales when SoT will finally arrive on Valve's storefront.

In 2019, Xbox chief Phil Spencer expressed plans to offer more choice to players deciding where they want to buy their PC games from. Rare Studio has yet to announce a release window for Steam but players can add SoT to wishlist now.

Sea of Thieves initially launched two years ago on Microsoft Store as an Xbox-exclusive, which will now be joining alongside Gears 5, Halo: The Master Chief Collection and State of Decay 2 on Steam as latest Xbox Game Studios title.
