The Starfield release date is still the first half of 2023, despite the apparent absence from the Xbox show
Let’s start the chase. To be star school delay?
Officially, no. And to be fair to Microsoft and Bethesda Game Studios, they’ve told us we won’t hear anything about Todd Howard’s next epic role-playing game for the time being. Wednesday’s Developer Live Show. There will be an independent showcase for star school at a certain point. Still an elephant isn’t in the room, especially if two of the four games are shown — failure and Scrolls online‘S caseation expansion — are Bethesda’s major projects launching in May and June respectively. It doesn’t seem like Bethesda will want to steal the profits on those projects (or star school) by packing that game into the May or June release window.
Remember, during the Xbox and Bethesda Showcase this past June, Microsoft more or less wrote an IOU for fans, promising that star school will be among a large catalog of highly anticipated games launching in the first half of 2023 (and, as a first-party game, will be available on the same day to Xbox Game Pass subscribers).
Updates we received from Xbox and Bethesda on Wednesday show that the first half of Microsoft’s 2023 game calendar now looks like this:
- April 18 — minecraft legends
- May 2 – failure
- June 20 — The Elder Scrolls Online: Necrom
- TBA 2023 — Forza . sports car racing
Unless the Xbox guys have a surprise drop, ah la Tango game’ Hi-Fi Rushplanned for star school – this doesn’t seem advisable – sci-fi RPG releases are starting to get slippery. (As if Forza‘S; Microsoft and Turn 10 don’t seem to want to suggest the first half of 2023 time for their racing game.)
Latest information about star schoollaunched last May, in which Bethesda told fans it was pushed the launch time to the first half of 2023 (with relapse.) Microsoft, during its summer rollout adjacent to E3 last year, made it big by telling fans all the stuff they wanted to play would be. come in the first half of the year 2023. star school is implied to be one of those things.
In November, Howard, the creative director of Bethesda Game Studios, spoke to podcaster Lex Fridman about star school and the difficult decision to delay the game for the first time, from its November 2022 launch to a somewhat softer, less defined deadline now.
“Wish it came soon,” Howard said. “We also want it out. And I wish they didn’t take as long as they did. But, they do.
We asked Xbox and Bethesda representatives if star school should be considered delayed. Sure, they’ll want to comment on that, but if they do, we’ll be sure to update it here.
