Sea of Thieves Forsaken Shores free DLC slightly delayed, now releases on September 26th

Microsoft has announced that the third free content update for Sea of Thieves, Forsaken Shores, has been slightly delayed. According to the company, Rare’s priority is to ensure delivery of a stable, polished and bug-free experience that all players can enjoy which is why it decided to delay the DLC by one week.

As Joe Neate, Executive Producer, explained:

“Our priority is to ensure we deliver a stable, polished and bug-free experience that all our players can enjoy. We have just had a weekend of Pioneer testing, which has highlighted a memory issue in the build, which is resulting in an unstable build where a large number of our Pioneers were experiencing crashes. From our investigations this is a complex issue that we are working through solving, but as such we do not feel in a position to release Forsaken Shores to our players with confidence this week.”

Rare’s goal this week is to resolve the memory issue and get enough Pioneer coverage. According to the developers, this will give them time to implement fixes, test, and get builds out to Pioneers to gain confidence.

Forsaken Shores will feature superheated water, burning rocks raining down from volcanoes and exploding geysers that aim to change the way pirates traverse land and sea.
