Xbox and Bethesda have delayed Starfield to next year, along with Redfall. At the upcoming Xbox & Bethesda Showcase, we can expect a deep dive into gameplay for both titles in early 2023.
It would be an understatement to say that Starfield is one of the most anticipated games of 2013. For the first time in over a decade, Bethesda is working on a brand-new IP. Only a few details about the game have been revealed since it was first announced in 2018.
When it comes to modern RPGs and role-playing games, Bethesda Game Studio is often regarded as one of the most influential studios in the industry. Players can immerse themselves in a fantasy world like Tamriel or a dystopian America thanks to the games that are being created, which are often packed with never-before-seen features and opportunities.
As with Arkane Austin’s Redfall, the game’s original release date of November 11, 2022. It has been pushed back to early 2023. Despite the fact that this is bad news for those who had hoped to travel to distant galaxies. It promises a finished product free of the curse of rushed deadlines and unfinished games.
Redfall and Starfield, Xbox’s upcoming flagship titles, have been pushed back to 2023.
Bethesda has released a new trailer for Starfield and Redfall, two upcoming games. They were scheduled to be released at the end of this year, Redfall in September and Starfield in November respectively, by Bethesda Games Studio and Arkane Austin. Bethesda stated the following in its most recent update:
Until then, we’ve decided to postpone the launches of Redfall and Starfield. Redfall and Starfield are the products of ambitious development teams at Arkane Austin and Bethesda Game Studios. And we want to make sure you get the best possible experience with them.
Starfield was originally announced back at E3 2018 as the next major title by Bethesda Game Studios after Skyrim and Fallout 4. First major IP in over 25 years, and being developed on a new version of the creation engine. Which is generating buzz for the upcoming title.
Originally, the game was going to be released on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. However, the acquisition of Bethesda by Microsoft’s Xbox in 2021 means that their future games will be exclusive to the platform. In addition, because of the ambitious scope of the game, the creators decided to limit its release to the next generation of consoles and the PC.
First post-acquisition showcase for Redfall was held at Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase last year. Open-world first-person shooter video game with single-player and co-op multiplayer modes is planned for the game.
Vampires are invading the island town of Redfall, Massachusetts, and players must choose one of four characters to battle them. Both games are expected to be included in Xbox Game Pass from the start, due to their publishing relationship with Xbox.
The Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase this summer is expected to feature gameplay for Redfall and Starfield.
Only concept art, leaked gameplay images and a CGI trailer announcing the original release date are known about the game. However, things are about to change. Bethesda’s announcement of upcoming gameplay footage for both games coincided with the news of the delays.
The annual Xbox & Bethesda Game Showcase will take place on June 9th, 2022, at Microsoft’s headquarters. Despite the fact that its original release date of late 2022 led many to speculate about a gameplay reveal, today’s update confirms its existence.
Unexpectedly, the delay is reminiscent of Xbox’s decision to delay Halo Infinite in order to meet quality standards. Although Halo Infinite was lacking in content when it was released, it is unquestionably one of the most polished games on the market today.
