As is already known, the vast, and highly ambitious Starfield was initially revealed last year in 2021. And during its exclusive reveal itself, Xbox confirmed the release date as well: November 11, 2022.

For almost one year, every die-hard gaming enthusiast was waiting for this AAA title to arrive this year. But on Thursday, Bethesda shared an unexpected message with all the fans on social media.

Updating the players about Starfield and its other project in Redfall, the studio wrote:

“We’ve made the decision to delay the launches of Redfall and Starfield to the first half of 2023.”

Furthermore, expanding on why it has delayed the game, Bethesda stated that it wants the players to receive the best version of Starfield. And taking extra time will result in a polished game for all the fans.

Additionally, it also wrote that there will be fresh gameplay footage revealed, soon, for both Redfall as well as Starfield. And since there’s the Xbox-Bethesda Games Showcase happening next month, the event will likely unleash more content from these two.
