Riding the High Seas of Popularity

Charting the Chart-Topper: How ‘Sea of Thieves’ Dominated European Sales

As the PlayStation 5 premier of Sea of Thieves approached, the excitement was as palpable as the ocean breeze! It dominated pre-order lists in many parts of Europe, and its successful launch wasn’t just expected; it was as inevitable as the tide!

According to the PlayStation Blog, not only was it the most downloaded game for Sony’s latest console in April (excluding free-to-play titles), but it also marked a significant victory lap for Microsoft on rival seas, as they proudly placed four titles in the top 10. Alongside Sea of Thieves, the list featured Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Grounded, and Fallout 4.

Microsoft’s Plunder on PlayStation Waters

Yes, you read that right! Microsoft, traditionally seen sailing mainly under its own flag, had a treasure-filled month on PlayStation platforms. With four of the top ten most sold games, it seems they’ve not only boarded the PlayStation ship but are also having a grand ol’ pirate party!

Global Success and the Call of the Sea

Sea of Thieves wasn’t just a hit in Europe; it also charted well in Canada and the US, although it was “only” third after Helldivers 2 and Stellar Blade. What does this tell us? The call of the sea is strong, and the allure of pirate life is universal, crossing oceans and continents!
