Update: Rare has announced via Twitter that the hotfix will be coming July 7 at 5am EDT. There has still been no information on what the hotfix will contain.
Original article: It has not been the calmest of seas for Rare’s Sea of Thieves: A Pirate’s Life. Since raising anchor last week, players have been met with a selection of bugs, and a few crustaceans, within the Tall Tales. The issues range from minor inconveniences to halting player progression and commendations.
Sea of Thieves: A Pirate’s Life Hotfix Coming Soon
Rare already made a wave of improvements, mainly focusing on ‘The Sunken Pearl’ Tall Tale, but there’s more to come. A hotfix releasing next week will look to address additional player feedback as well as further improve the experience.

There has not been any announcement yet as to what will be addressed in the hotfix. The ‘known issues’ within the previous release notes could give us an idea of what to expect but it is not guaranteed. For now, we will just have to keep our spyglasses on the horizon for further details. Including a timeframe on when the maintenance period begins.
