Is Sea of Thieves offline?

Sea of Thieves Server Status

UPDATE: On Thursday, October 19th, 2023, at 10 am BST / 11 am CEST / 5 am EDT / 2 am PDT, the Sea of Thieves servers will go offline for essential maintenance ahead. Season 10 maintenance is expected to last for around two hours. Once the maintenance is completed, Sea of Thieves Season 10 will become available. However, the downtime will last for at least 5 to 6 hours. We will update the article once we have more information.

ORIGINAL STORY: At the time of writing, Sea of Thieves servers are up and running but things will be different before the release of the Season 6 update. Season 6 is set to be released on March 10th, and prior to its start, Sea of Thieves servers will go down. Rare has confirmed that Sea of Thieves servers will be offline from approximately 10 AM GMT / 11 AM CET / 5 AM ET / 2 AM PT on Thursday, March 10th.

The developers didn’t specify for how long servers will be offline. That’s nothing out of the ordinary, as Rare never provides an estimation of the downtime. However, when there are seasonal updates, the downtime can last anywhere between an hour and three hours. So, you can expect the game to become available again at around 1 PM ET / 2 PM CET / 8 AM ET / 5 AM PT. And this is a worst-case scenario. Sea of Thieves servers will probably go back online even earlier.

To check if the servers are up, use the official server status page. When servers go back up, you’ll see a green checkmark, which means you can jump right into the game and enjoy Sea of Thieves Season 6 content.
