Starfield Release Date Reveal Likely at Xbox E3 2021 Event

0

According to Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier, Starfield may get a release date at Microsoft’s Xbox E3 2021 event. The hotly anticipated sci-fi RPG developed by Bethesda was first revealed at E3 2018. On the Triple Click podcast (via ResetEra) Schreier claims that Starfield will be at E3 2021 and get a specific 2022 release date as well.

A 2022 release for Starfield makes sense when you consider that Schreier had previously revealed that it may not have had the complete attention of Bethesda owing to Fallout 76’s release at the time.

“What people might not realise is that the bulk of Bethesda Game Studios, including the MD office, was working on Fallout 76 until it launched,” he tweeted. “Starfield’s team was very small until 2019. Rumours that the game was planned for 2020 or far into production then are just not true[.]”

Previously it was reported that Starfield would be exclusive to the Xbox Series X|S and PC. At the time, GamesBeat reporter Jeff Grubb tweeted that “Starfield is exclusive to Xbox and PC. Period.”

Considering that Microsoft now owns Bethesda, it’s quite likely that it would want to press the advantage by keeping the developer’s games exclusive to its platforms. The likes of Deathloop, also from Bethesda will see a PS5 release however, owing to commercial contracts negotiated and agreed to prior to its buyout by Microsoft.

Not much is known about Starfield since its 2018 unveiling aside from Bethesda stating it developed new tech to bring the game to life.
