The game was originally slated to launch on November 11, 2022, a tribute to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrimthe release date of. The new space exploration game, which Bethesda has released valuable details about (and, as of this writing, no actual gameplay footage), will get additional development time, as will red fallArkane’s team vampire co-op shooter that was surprise announced last year.
It’s likely that both games will be featured in Bethesda’s next games showcase on June 12, so this early announcement is likely meant to set expectations in advance. Speaking of setting expectations, if Bethesda can show any Elder Scrolls VI images, keep in mind that it’s probably (unfortunately) still a long way from coming to consoles and PC.
Hey y’all, as you may have seen we have decided to delay the launch of #Redfall. The team needs more time to bring the game to life. Thank you so much for your continued support. Redfall is our most ambitious game yet, and we can’t wait to show it off soon. pic.twitter.com/H0y0NlXlJc

Few games have avoided major delays during the pandemic, as production and collaboration are more difficult when taking place at home rather than in the office. At this point, it’s almost expected that any game’s tentative release date will be pushed back, regardless of the company. For example, the sequence of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was recently pushed back from its scheduled holiday release to 2023.
