Microsoft and Bethesda have just announced the release date for Starfield and have done so through a trailer (which you can find below these lines) that confirms that our journey to the stars will begin on September 6, 2023, on PC and Xbox Series X/S. Despite the fact that the game has already had many delays (it was going to come out at the end of last year) and despite the fact that we were actively and passively promised that it would arrive "in the first half of 2023.", we will have to wait until the second half of the year. As long as it serves to polish the experience and avoid déjà vu, it’s a welcome development.
The announcement of the release date for Starfield is accompanied by a statement from Bethesda in which it is also announced Starfield Direct for June 11, 2023. A streaming presentation in which the company will show the game in depth and answer all of our questions. We leave you with the words of Todd Howard, executive producer of the developer:
“Hey everyone. From myself and everybody here in Bethesda, we're so excited to finally tell you when Starfield is coming out this year. We have poured ourselves into this game and even I am surprised how much we can pour. It is large. We’re playing the game all the time,” said Howard. “This June we’re gonna bring you into the studio and give you a deep dive in the game at our Starfield Direct. There’s so much that we still have to you. The game has many of the hallmarks that you’d expect from us, but it's also a very unique experience.”
“Thank you all for all of your excitement about the game, your support, your comments, we really do read it all. We know you’ve waited a long time to play something new from us, and believe it or not, we’re kind of the same: we miss it, and we really just can wait for you all to play it. So thanks, and we’ll see you soon.”
