Sea of Thieves is a troubled but promising open-world multiplayer experience that just seems to keep sailing into stormy seas. After a host of glitches and player complaints, developer Rare recently tried to add in a feature that would let players have private parties for their ships.
The feature didn't last more than 24 hours before Rare yanked it, citing "emergency maintenance" for the removal of the feature. The developer notes that private crews, and other features, will return at a later date.
We have completed our emergency maintenance and the game is back online. The previously added features have been turned off temporarily and we will continue to monitor game performance and develop a plan to reinstate the features soon. Thank you for your patience. pic.twitter.com/t8feB9hAcu— Sea of Thieves (@SeaOfThieves) May 16, 2018

The number of technical issues and lack of content has marred the promising Sea Of Thieves since its release. Here's hoping Rare sorts out both problems sooner rather than later.
