Bethesda postpones Starfield and Redfall to 2023

Bethesda Softworks delayed star field, its highly anticipated sci-fi RPG, and red fall, The vampire-themed shooter from Arkane Studios, through the first half of 2023, the company announced Thursday morning. Both games were supposed to launch this year.

In a statement on Twitterthe Microsoft-owned publisher said, “The teams at Arkane Austin (red fall) and Bethesda Game Studios (star field) have incredible ambitions for their games, and we want to make sure you get the best, most polished versions of them.

Bethesda promised to share “the first deep dive” on the two games soon, indicating that the two will still make an appearance on the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase on June 12.

star field is an epic sci-fi RPG from the creators of the Elder Scrolls series, the first major release from the core team at Bethesda Game Studios since 2015 Fallout 4and the studio’s first new ownership in 25 years. red fall is a cooperative open-world shooter in the Left 4 Dead style, and its development at Arkane’s Austin branch is being led by Dishonored creative director Harvey Smith.

Both games therefore have an excellent pedigree, and both are also very important to Bethesda’s new owner, Microsoft, as they are expected to be the first Bethesda titles to be exclusive to the Xbox console. 2021 Death Loop and this year Ghostwire: Tokyo both launched on PlayStation first, although they were released after the Microsoft acquisition, due to pre-existing agreements. star field and red fall will also launch on PC and, from day one, on Xbox Game Pass.
