Two Bethesda Games, Including Starfield, Have been Officially Delayed

When Bethesda declared November 11, 2022, as the release date of Starfield, every enthusiast took a walk down the memory lane. After all, this was the date when the evergreen Skyrim was launched 11 years ago, and what better way for Bethesda to celebrate its biggest title’s anniversary than rolling out another IP that’s wanted by most. 

But as it happens in the gaming community, the company talked the talk but could not walk the walk because the release of Starfield along with Arkane Studios’ Redfall has been held hostage by a delay.

In an announcement on Twitter, Bethesda confirmed the postponement of Starfield and Redfall into the first half of 2023. While no specific reason has been given for the delay, the statement simply discloses that the games are being delayed to offer players “the best, most polished versions of them.”

“We want to thank everyone for their excitement for Redfall and Starfield. That energy is a huge part of what inspires all of us every day and drives our own excitement for what we are creating. We can’t wait to share our first deep dive into the gameplay for both Redfall and Starfield soon. Thank you for your support.” Said Bethesda.

Considering how fans haven’t seen much of both the titles, these delays shouldn’t be shocking at all. Although what does seem a bit off is that now there is no significant Xbox exclusive slated to arrive during the busiest gaming season of the year.

However, fans can relax as things can indeed change at the forthcoming Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase scheduled for June 9 at 10 am PT/12 pm CT.

Last but not the least, Bethesda ends the post by saying that the first deep dive into the gameplay for both Redfall and Starfield will be coming soon, but no specific dates were assigned. Perhaps, the footage, too, will be shown at the showcase next month, but it’s still unconfirmed at the time of writing.

About Starfield

Starfield will take players to the deepest depth of space. Being a Sci-Fi game, one can expect it to be brimming with stupendous weapons and supersonic spacecraft while offering a magical tone that is enough to get lost in.

ABOUT Redfall

Developed by Arkane Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks, Redfall is an upcoming open-world co-op FPS set in the “quaint island town of Redfall, Massachusetts,” which has been taken over by a legion of bloodthirsty zombies.
