For its next adventure, Bethesda is transcending the confines of Medieval prisons and retro bomb shelters to boldly go where, as it turns out, many games are going: space. Announced back in 2018, Starfield is Bethesda’s first new intellectual property in 25 years, and as such, there is a lot of hype surrounding the upcoming project–and perhaps just as many questions. In an attempt to answer at least a few of ’em and help you keep up to date with what’s going on with Starfield, we’ve compiled everything we know about the game so far.
Starfield is confirmed to release on Xbox Series X|S and PC, thanks to Microsoft’s recent acquisition of Bethesda. Game director Todd Howard said being able to focus exclusively on Xbox and PC is in the best interests of Starfield. However, he definitely hears and feels for PlayStation owners who won’t be able to play it.
“You don’t ever want to leave people out, right?” Howard said back in June 2021. “But at the end of the day, your ability to focus and say, this is the game I want to make, these are the platforms I want to make it on, and being able to really lean in on those is going to make for a better product.”
