Bethesda's Starfield has been in the works for a long time now, and while it may not be the most awaited title by Bethesda, it is still a long-awaited one. But it surely is a nice change of pace from the medieval fantasy or the post-apocalyptic wasteland we are used to from Bethesda.
The space RPG was one of the biggest names when the talks of the new generation of consoles were at their peak. However, a lot has changed since then, and some important business decisions took place, so, how did they affect Starfield? When are we getting the release? We'll talk about it here.
Many people expected the launch for the next generation of consoles, but this was before the Bethesda purchase. Now, in case that you don’t know what we’re talking about, Microsoft purchased Bethesda Game Studios, and things got a little messy for Sony’s PlayStation. As one of the first things they announced is that some future titles would become Xbox exclusives.
Rand al Thor, Xbox Two Podcast host, has stated that he's got info from a reliable source, an insider actually, that Starfield will be 100% an Xbox exclusive. Rand al Thor has collaborated with Jez Corden from Windows central before, so his sources are pretty reliable. Now, when they say Xbox exclusive it means it will also be available for PC as part of the Xbox game services.
The insider also confirmed that the direct main objective for the release date of Starfield is set to be in 2021. Of course, with the current world situation and the pandemic, one can never be too certain when it comes to releasing dates. Bethesda has been especially secretive when it comes to Starfield, and this leak is the only "official" information we've seen in a long time now.
The future ahead
We still don’t know much of what will happen with Starfield, nor we know much about the state of the development. And it’s been a while since we last saw new official images of Bethesda’s space RPG. And while they seem to be doing all they can to get a release date this year, the same cannot be said about other Bethesda titles.
We don't know just how many years will it take for The Elder Scrolls 6 to be released, but we know it isn't any time soon. And the same thing goes for Elden Ring, but what with this leak about Starfield's exclusivity for Microsoft platforms, PlayStation fans could start to worry a little. After all, these games may be also released exclusively for Microsoft Platforms, and that would definitively be a heavy bow for PS fans.
While there isn't much new info about the game itself, Starfield will certainly be a great game. After all, it isn't often that Bethesda disappoints, even with the recent bad experience we had with Fallout.
Starfield is set to be a new heavy name in the RPG game world, and as usual, Bethesda Seems to be having a huge title in their hands. The best we can do right now is just hope they get to release it this year, even if it's a Microsoft exclusive.
