Bethesda reaffirms Starfield release date

The support page for Bethesda's first new IP in decades recently went up and it confirms that the game is still coming out within the next six months.

Starfield was meant to be one of last year's biggest video games  - until it wasn't. Bethesda Softworks' first new IP in decades was delayed to this year to give the development team more time to polish it. But, while hopes are high that Starfield will deliver on expectations, fans aren't quite happy not knowing when exactly it'll be out. All we know is that it will be released during the first half of this year, which doesn't help at all. Thankfully, the game's official support page going live might be a sign of incoming good news for Starfield.

Just like every other Xbox exclusive before it, Starfield is expected to be on the Game Pass as soon as it's out.

According to the support page, Bethesda Softworks still intends to release the upcoming Xbox Series S/X inclusive within the next six months. It might not be an exact release date, but it's reasonable to expect that the game isn't going to be delayed because of the recent development.

Surprisingly enough, Starfield's release window puts it awfully close to Redfall, which might come out in May. We suppose releasing Xbox exclusives close together is better than last year's relatively empty slate.

Starfield is one of the most highly anticipated games in recent memory for several reasons. For one, it's by Bethesda, a studio well-known for marquee franchises like The Elder Scrolls and Fallout. In addition to this, the words "sci-fi RPG" always tend to draw interest despite how many times gamers have been burned before. Finally, Starfield is a promising project that should tide open-world RPG fans over until the next big thing comes along.

Also, don't forget, the sooner Starfield is out and going smoothly, the earlier we're going to get to play The Elder Scrolls 6 and Fallout 5.

Starfield could be the start of a new franchise for Bethesda and Microsoft.

Speaking of the Xbox, Microsoft's latest consoles aren't falling behind the PlayStation 5 as much as expected. The release of games like Starfield should only help drive up sales of the Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X.
