We’ve been ready a very long time for additional information on Bethesda’s subsequent huge RPG, Starfield, and within the absence of official particulars the hearsay mill at all times appears to start out spinning. Word started to flow into this week that the Starfield release date would land this yr, but lots of the business’s most dependable insiders are saying that you just shouldn’t expect the sport to launch for at least one other yr.

“Rumours like this keep floating around but Starfield is nowhere near done, according to several people familiar with development,” Jason Schreier says on Twitter. “It’ll be at E3 but the planned release date I’ve heard is way later than most people expect.” In a follow-up tweet, Schreier says that “Bethesda’s plan is to tease a release date for Starfield at E3. That date is in late 2022.”

Tom Warren confirms that Starfield is “not coming this year”, and Jeff Grubb reiterates that you just shouldn’t even expect it to launch in early 2022.

Just in case the Microsoft buyout of Bethesda didn’t make it clear sufficient, you should not expect Starfield to hit PlayStation systems when it launches, both.

The E3 2021 schedule ought to convey us a higher concept of what to expect from Starfield, but it seems to be like Bethesda is placing some further time in between the reveal and launch this time round. If that leads to a higher closing sport, it’s all for the higher.
