According to the latest Sea of Thieves developer update, players will finally be getting the ability to create private servers. The new feature will be coming in a mid-term update. According to executive producer Joe Neate, it’s not on the “immediate stuff” the team is working on, but it is something that is definitely planned for SoT.
Neate’s update is a bit thin on details, but he did talk about a recent community Arena Mode tournament event called Sea of Champions. Neate said that community events would be easier to organize and run with the addition of private servers.
Earlier this year, Neate told Shacknews that “allowing more friends to come together and play in the world in the kind of way that they want” is something that Rare is working to figure out.
