Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Sea of Thieves is Microsoft's fastest selling first party new IP of this generation.

A great game. Well deserved sales for Rare and MS.
Those who "bought" the game, love it.



Do you have fun playing a console different than mine?

DON'T!!!

Around the Network

This includes Recore, Sunset Overdrive, Quantum Break, etc (although it isn't much of a feat to beat these games, lol).

Congrats to Rare for having a success in their hands. However, I still don't condone shipping an unfinished game.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Good to hear but from the sound of things, Microsoft and Rareware got work to do. They need to get to it.



Nice spin with windows 10.

What spin would this be?

"Sea of Thieves is already the best-selling Microsoft Studios first-party title on Windows 10."

Where do you see the spin? This clearly means it has already outsold Gears 4, Forza Horizon 3, Forza 7, and Halo Wars 2 on PC, only in one week. And since MS also counts other MS published games as "first-party", it's also ahead of Recore, super lucky's tale, etc as well.

If anything they spinned fast selling ip because it was so unclear unlike windows 10. C'mon now that one is a pretty clear statement...



Not fan of the game, but happy that Rare game is successful, because I would have feared for their future. Fastest selling means day to day comparison to other titles like Sunset Overdrive and quantum Break right? Those titles had pretty poor start so it isnt surprising and they are around slightly above 1m sold? So them not mentioning best selling first party title means it may not have passed 1m yet. Also I wonder how many people used that 14 day free trial of the gamepass, because thats all I have heard all week.

Hopefully State of Decay 2 is a lot better game and what I have seen, it probably is.



Great news for Microsoft and will hopefully fuel their investments into new IP!

Why are there quotation marks in between bought?

Im not sure... but yeah over 300k+ have bought this at full price.

Still thats alot of money, rare & MS are probably pretty happy with it.
Assumeing like ~1.4m unique gamepass buys (300k are shareing the game, ect).

1.4m x 9.99$ + 300k+ x 60$ =  lots of money.

You're not sure? But aren't you the one that put the quotations in there?
