Sea of Thieves Season 9: Release Date, Leaks, and Latest Updates

Compared to its early days, Sea of Thieves has become a really strong GAAS title for Xbox, and the team at Rare are really starting to find their feet through the game’s seasonal content model.

But as with any GAAS title, players always want to know what is coming next, so read on, let’s take a look at what Sea of Thieves Season 9 could bring to the captain’s table.

Sea of Thieves Season 9 Release Date

At the time of writing Rare has not announced an official release date for when Sea of Thieves Season 9 starts but it was tentatively scheduled for December 2023 as part of the original Sea of Thieves 2022 Roadmap. However, due to a series of delays to Sea of Thieves Season 7, Season 9 could well be delayed into 2023.

Season 7 was originally meant to launch in June, but only went live on August 4. Past seasons have typically lasted somewhere between 9 to 14 weeks, but given the sizable delay, Season 9 might be pushed into January 2023. Take a look at the table below for more specific dates.

 SEASON  START DATE  END DATE  DURATION
Season 1 January 28, 2021 April 15, 2021 11 Weeks
Season 2 April 15, 2021 June 22, 2021 9 Weeks
Season 3 June 22, 2021 September 23, 2021 13 Weeks
Season 4 September 23, 2021 December 2, 2021 10 Weeks
Season 5 December 2, 2021 March 10, 2022 14 Weeks
Season 6 March 10, 2022 August 4, 2022 21 Weeks
Season 7 August 4, 2022 ??? NA
Season 8 ??? ??? NA
Season 9 ??? ??? NA

If Sea of Thieves Season 8 was to start on October 13, it would be 10 weeks since the start of Season 7. But even if Season 8 started on October 13, it would only leave 8 weeks until December 8. So, really it looks difficult to see Sea of Thieves Season 9 launching in 2022 currently.

Of course, this is just a rough prediction on our part, so take it with a pinch of salt until Rare provides an official announcement.

Sea of Thieves Season 9 New Features

So far we have very little to go on when it comes to new features for Sea of Thieves Season 9, not least with the roadmap running a little bit behind schedule. For now, we know that Season 9 will add the following:

  • New Social Options For Crews
  • Three new adventures
  • ‘Ongoing mysteries’
  • New Monthly Emporium Content
  • A new plunder pass
  • And a Community Day

Sea of Thieves Season 8 Leaks & Teasers

For the time being there’s not been any concrete Season 9 leaks, but its important to keep an eye out at all times.

During Gamescom 2022, the Sea of Thieves team spoke about future content, with Mike Chapman (creative director) making a big point of stating how the team often works on content or character stories a year in advance. More so, Chapman also stated how the team would often seed teasers to bring players along that thematic journey more organically. You can see the whole conversation on the video below around the 19-minute mark.

So when you think about it, there are likely already teasers across the Sea of Thieves right now hinting at what’s to come in Season 9.


That’s everything you need to know about Sea of Thieves Season 9 for the time being, but make sure to check back for the latest news, leaks and updates as they become available.
