Starfield be “100% Xbox exclusive”. As bluntly a insider from the brand on the latest show of a podcast that focused on Bethesda’s ambitious new space RPG. It is not the first time that we have heard this information, but the person who has issued these statements assures that those who have commented on it are “very reliable” sources which have also given clues about a possible release date of Starfield by the end of 2021.
“Very reliable sources have told me that Starfield is 100% exclusive to Xbox,” says the insider Rand al’Thor on the latest Xbox Two podcast. “I’ve even placed bets on it, and I don’t bet unless I know I should bet,” he continues. This leaker is known for having previously released information that ended up being fulfilled, like the one in which The Initiative was working on a game of Perfect Dark, something that was confirmed later. Even so, we must continue to understand this information as a rumor.
After the acquisition of Bethesda by Microsoft, there was a lot of talk about the arrival of the company’s games on other platforms, specifically on PlayStation, something that has not yet been fully resolved. Jim Ryan, Head of PlayStationHe said in his day that he did not know if Starfield will be released on PS5. Phil Spencer, jefe de Xbox, said for his part that “future Bethesda games will be exclusive to platforms with Xbox Game Pass.”
Will Starfield be released in late 2021?
Rand al’Thor is not only confident that Starfield will be Xbox exclusive, but also anticipates that Bethesda is working hard to launch the game later this year: “I feel very, very confident that Starfield It will only come out on Xbox when it is released, and I have also been told that Microsoft is trying hard to get the game to launch this Christmas, “he says, and ditch saying: “They really want Starfield in the market this Christmas “.
On the current state of Starfield, this insider explains that the game is practically ready to go, that it is in a bugfix phase: “The game is basically almost finished, it’s in a bug-finding mode right now, like Halo Infinite“, he compares, and continues to put himself in a hypothetical situation of the future:” It would be a bombshell for Game Pass if so much Halo Infinite What Starfield could be launched this fall. “
It is true that other sources, such as the journalist Jeff Grubb, have pointed to a possible Starfield launch in late 2021. Other insider industry, NateDrake, also spoke of that possibility. For some it is somewhat strange considering how little we have seen the game, but the truth is that it has been in development for several years. Bethesda has confirmed its presence at E3 2021, which will be held from June 12 to 15 virtually, and it has also been rumored that Starfield could make an appearance alongside other Xbox titles, such as Forza Horizon 5, Age of Empires 4 or the mentioned Halo Infinite.
