The highly-anticipated Starfield from Bethesda is aiming for a 2021 release. ‘NateDrake’, the industry insider told on the RestEra forums over the weekend in a thread dedicated to Jeff Grubb’s recent quotes about the upcoming Microsoft/Bethesda event.
A few months ago, the insider said that the intended target of Microsoft and Bethesda was to release the game later this year. Though it’s not known that how the pandemic might have affected the gaol.
“There has been a strong hope & desire to have Starfield launch this yr”, the insider writes. “How major the impacts due to COVID have been on the title is anyone’s guess, but 2021 was the intended goal for release as of a few months ago.”
Via a follow-up post, ‘NateDrake’ pointed towards that he is not entirely certain about the release frame. This is also due to Starfield being a game of Bethesda, which appears to be getting delayed quite often.
“Right, I’m not saying it’ll 100% for certain happen; but, as of late last year, I was hearing the goal was to launch this year. But it is a Bethesda game and delays or issues may arise to prevent the release from coming”, the insider added.
