Bethesda Reassures Fans STARFIELD Is Releasing In Early 2023

As the year turns over, the recently discovered Starfield support site assures fans that despite the lack of showcases, it's still releasing this year.

Bethesda Softworks hasn't given fans much about its next high-profile release other than its exclusivity to Xbox and a handful of further notable details like some gameplay and threads of its story. So, when revealing Starfield, much like revealing Elder Scrolls VI, we knew -- and to some extent still know -- basically nothing about this brand-new IP.

In that same way, the last we heard from Starfield was in June 2022, when game director Todd Howard showed off 15 minutes of gameplay. Not long after, the game was delayed into the first half of 2023 for polishing reasons. With no updated showcase or anything more than a little blip here and there since the gameplay back in June, fans grew worried that the game would face a second delay, but it seems Bethesda isn't letting that happen.

Revealed during Bethesda's E3 conference in 2018, Starfield was a rather notable game in its roster as it would mark the first original IP Bethesda developed itself in over 25 years. Howard described Starfield as "Skyrim in space" in a 2021 interview with The Washington Post (paywalled).

All things considered, the most controversial thing is its Xbox exclusivity following the flash-in-the-pan industry shakeup of Microsoft swooping in and acquiring ZeniMax, the parent of Bethesda. The deal naturally came with subsidiaries like Arkane Studios, id Softworks, Tango Gameworks, and more. 

Howard isn't too concerned about the lack of PlayStation fans, though, as the dev had a history of releasing exclusives to Xbox during the early years of The Elder Scrolls franchise, with 2002's The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind being the prime example. If you aren't much of an Xbox fan, though, Starfield is also arriving on PC.
