Rare are holding one last call to join the Sea of Thieves alpha before it sets sail for a release sail path, and they’re promising access to everyone who signs up before the December 1 cut-off.
Players who subscribe to the Sea of Thieves Insider Programme prior to the December 1st cut-off are guaranteed to be part of the last wave of invites. To sign up, players need an Xbox Live Gamertag, and of legal age to sign an NDA. The next play session is scheduled to be mid-December.
This news suggests development is slowly ramping towards a likely open beta before a launch next year.
Neither Rare nor Microsoft have made any comment related to the launch plans for the forthcoming jaunt across the seven seas.
