If the leaked images doing the rounds online are authentic, the Stellar Shift will have a blue-purple hue and a background filled with starlight that resembles images of galaxies captured on telescopes.

Gamers have begun to theorize that the name and design of the controller might be related to the upcoming Bethesda Softworks RPG, Starfield. It's unlikely that the similarity between Starfield, a game set in deep space, and the word "Stellar," which means "pertaining to stars", as well as the starry background are coincidental. Even though the release date of the much-anticipated game hasn't been announced yet, we know that it's scheduled to be released in the first half of this year.

On the other hand, it wouldn't be all that surprising if the Stellar Shift is a crossover marketing controller for Starfield since Xbox is renowned for designing custom consoles and controllers. It's plausible that Xbox might even have a Super Bowl LVII ad spot to reveal the release date for Starfield.
