Microsoft and Bethesda’s massive RPG Starfield has been delayed, along with Arkane’s Redfall, with both games targeting the first half of 2023.
Starfield, Bethesda Softworks’ first new IP in years, has been delayed from its 2022 release date, along with Arkane Studios’ vampire-killing shooter, Redfall.
While Starfield was given a November 11, 2022 release date, Redfall still had a fuzzier “Summer 2022” window before the announcement.
Starfield and Redfall delayed
The news comes via a tweet from the official Bethesda account.
“The teams at Arkane Austin (Redfall) and Bethesda Game Studios (Starfield) have incredible ambitions for their games and we want to make sure you get the best, most polished versions of them,” the statement read.
“We want to thank everyone for their enthusiasm for Redfall and Starfield. That energy is a big part of what inspires us all every day and fuels our own excitement for what we create.”
It’s not all bad news, though, as the statement also reads: “we can’t wait to share our first deep dive into gameplay for both Redfall and Starfield soon,” suggesting we’ll likely hear more during the Microsoft release. and Bethesda gameplay showcase.
While we’ve seen a lot of Starfield in recent developer diary videos, we’ve yet to see the actual gameplay of the project beyond the in-engine demonstrations. Redfall, on the other hand, will remain secret after its announcement at E3 2021.
