The launch time for Sea of Thieves Season 7 will be 5 AM ET/ 2 AM PT/ 10 AM BST (9 AM UTC). This is when the servers will be taken offline for the necessary maintenance to commence the next season.
Following this, players will be able to download the new update on their PC or Xbox console and start enjoying the next pirate adventure based around “captaincy.”
How long will the maintenance go?
The Sea of Thieves developer Rare hasn’t revealed how long the maintenance and downtime will go. However, considering the previous trends, we expect it to last for around an hour. After that, you’ll be able to jump into the next season.
It’s also possible that the maintenance could be extended to a couple or a few hours. We’ll keep you updated if it happens. Meanwhile, you can have a look at another upcoming exciting pirate adventure titled “Skull and Bones.”

What to Expect from Sea of Thieves Season 7?
Sea of Thieves Season 7 is based on the “Captaincy” theme with the tagline #BeMoreCaptain. Rare has been unveiling details bout the upcoming season in blog posts and YouTube videos ever since the announcement.
“We believe Captaincy will transform the experience of playing Sea of Thieves, adding deeper meaning and history to every session and every encounter out on the seas, along with the much-requested ability to own and finally name your ship,” they wrote in the latest news release.
This means players will be able to buy and name their own ship alongside many other options. There are also new stats to track and interface changes. Players will be able to purchase a ship from each class, and more after reaching the Legendary status.
After buying your ship, you will know that your fleet doesn’t start as a fresh design when you spawn in. Instead, the battle scars will remain in place and each blemish will remain as part of owning a ship.
