Bethesda has announced via Twitter that both Starfield and Redfall are delayed until 2023.
Given that these are both hotly anticipated titles with a ton of hype following them, I cannot fault Bethesda or wanting more time.
With that said, I cannot say that this isn’t disappointing news, as I was looking forward to playing these during the holidays. However, I totally understand the need to put out the best possible game to launch a new IP. Look at what happened to Cyberpunk 2077.
I don’t think I’m going out on a limb when I say that Starfield’s music is going to be top-notch. One just needs to look (or listen) to Bethesda’s previous works and you have an idea of what to expect in terms of quality and scale.
The latest Starfield mini-doc looks into how the soundtrack was constructed, as audio director Mark Lampert and composer Inon Zur detail their processes and inspiration in building the game’s epic score.
Starfield launches on the PC and Xbox Series X|S on November 11, 2022. It will also be available on day one on Xbox Game Pass.
Bethesda’s highly anticipated Xbox Series X/S and PC exclusive is still a year away, but they have offered up a little behind-the-scenes sneak peek.
The seven-minute mini-documentary titled Into the Starfield: The Endless Pursuit, features Game Director Todd Howard, Studio Director Angela Browder, and Art Director Matt Carofano. The trio discusses how science fiction is a bit of a departure for Bethesda Game Studios. They also detail how the studio’s staff’s ambitions, passions, and history have helped to shape Starfield.
The video offers up very little in terms of gameplay, but there was an interesting anecdote from Todd Howard. He teases that Starfield has “two step-out moments.”
What are these so-called “step-out” moments? We have to wait just under a year to find out.
Folks are excited for Starfield, the long awaited new IP from Bethesda. PlayStation fans in particular are butt hurt that there is a real possibility that it’s not coming to the PS5. Bethesda now owned by Microsoft, so it makes sense that this title will be exclusive to Microsoft.
PlayStation fans are persistent so they continue to pester Bethesda with questions. At a Gamescon interview, Pete Hines and Xbox’s Aaron Greenberg were peppered with questions. Hines also states that, “I don’t know if I would go so far as to say you’re done ever playing stuff on PlayStation…. “Starfield, it was announced as a thing that’s an Xbox exclusive… I don’t know if I would go so far as to say you’re done ever playing stuff on PlayStation. But again, I don’t know the answer to that right now.”
Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg was a bit more direct via Twitter.
Will this ever come to end? Why is it so hard to fathom that this game is exclusive to Xbox, full stop.
