Is Johnny Depp playing Jack Sparrow in Sea of Thieves?

Sea of Thieves: A Pirates Life is an upcoming free expansion featuring the iconic Jack Sparrow. His appearance is causing many players to wonder: Is Johnny Depp playing Jack Sparrow in Sea of Thieves, or is there a different Jack Sparrow voice actor? It’s a divisive question, so check out the latest on who plays Captain Jack in the Sea of Thieves x Pirates of the Caribbean collab.

Does Johnny Depp voice Jack Sparrow in Sea of Thieves: A Pirates Life?

Johnny Depp portrays Captain Jack Sparrow in all of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, but Johnny Depp is not playing Jack Sparrow in the free Sea of Thieves: A Pirates Life expansion, however.

Rare’s announcement features no mention of Depp, and while it has not been confirmed if he will appear in the game, it seems unlikely this will be the case given that such an announcement would likely have been advertised. Rather than reprising his role, an as-yet-unnamed soundalike will take up the mantle.

Captain Sparrow’s most recent video game appearance is in Kingdom Hearts 3, where voice actor Jared Butler plays the role. It’s possible that Butler will reprise the position in the SoT x Pirates of the Caribbean crossover, though there’s been no confirmation yet. Expect to hear more soon, as there isn’t long until the free update launches.

Sea of Thieves x Pirates of the Caribbean is launching on June 22, 2021. A Pirates Life will be free for all players across Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC via Windows 10 and Steam.
