It’s good old reliable Starfield, the big science-fiction roleplaying game from Bethesda that we know absolutely nothing about. The title is supposedly on the same level as Bethesda’s other titles, Fallout, and Elder Scrolls, while having absolutely no other information other than the fact that Bethesda is working on it.
Now that Microsoft has bought out Bethesda, we’re hoping they’re going to shake them down for information about Starfield. Maybe that’s why Microsoft bought them out in the first place. They spent billions of dollars just to find out the release of Starfield. That would be such a money flex towards Sony.
Speaking of flexing on Sony, they were looking to make Starfield exclusive to the PlayStation 5.
Looks like someone at Sony either dropped the ball or Bethesda has known for months they were about to pledge their swords to Microsoft. Now that Microsoft knows that Sony was trying to keep Starfield away from them, they might reciprocate in kind and make it an Xbox exclusive.
You know what? Nobody would be mad at that knowing Sony was trying to secure the rights to Starfield’s exclusivity. Good thing Sony was able to get GhostWire: Tokyo before the merger. GhostWire: Tokyo is being published by Bethesda, but it’s still releasing as a timed exclusive for the PlayStation 5 alongside Deathloop.
Right now, the rumor going around is that Starfield will be an Xbox console exclusive. Hopefully, it can save the Xbox after the whole situation with Halo Infinite was fumbled. Seriously, a Microsoft next-generation Xbox launch without a Halo game in sight? What timeline are we in?
So far, the only thing we know about Starfield is that we know absolutely nothing at all, and we will just have to sit back and be okay with this lack of information so far. At least we know it will be “Fallout in space.”
That’s all we need to cling onto for now.
