Earlier today, Microsoft let Rare's Sea of Thieves out into the wild, with streamers, reviewers, and players in certain regions able to finally dive into the full game. For a brief period today, Sea of Thieves scaled some lofty heights and became the most viewed game on Twitch.
It didn't last all that long though, as Fortnite caught back up, taking the number one spot with a gap of around 2,000 viewers as of this writing. Still it's a strong opening salvo from Sea of Thieves, giving the Xbox One a solid exclusive with some heat behind it.
It's interesting because on Microsoft's own streaming platform, Mixer, Fortnite has a strong lead over Sea of Thieves. Fortnite sits at around 4,300 viewers, followed by Minecraft, PUBG, and then Sea of Thieves. Mixer is the preferred platform for Xbox One streaming, but it seems streamers and viewers want to be on Twitch instead.
