Rare has been quite busy over the past week with the launch of Sea of Thieves Season Seven, but that's not all it's been up to. It turns out the UK developer has also been busy entertaining the head of Xbox, Phil Spencer.

In a brief post via social media, the official Rare Twitter revealed how it had been hosting Phil for the first time in four years. The message mentions how he caught up with the teams, but it wasn't mentioned exactly what he got up to. Surely, at least one of the screens has something to do with Everwild.

Some Rare employees, including studio head Craig Duncan, shared some extra insight on social media:

If you've not tried out the new Sea of Thieves update yet, it includes new personalisation options, a milestone progression system, ship loadout saving, sovereign and shipwright perks, 100 levels of season rewards, an emporium refresh and the ability to buy and name ships.

As for Everwild, there have been mixed reports about the game over the past year - with claims the team is still figuring things, and that it will also feature a large-scale multiplayer world.
