Starfield won’t be coming to PlayStation 5, GamesBeat is reporting. Instead, Bethesda’s first-person science fiction role-playing journey seems set to be a significant console unique for Xbox Series X|S.
Video gamesBeat cites sources conversant in the choice in its report. Reporter Jeff Grubb earlier tweeted that “Starfield is unique to Xbox and PC. Period.”
We reached out to Microsoft and Bethesda representatives for remark relating to these experiences.
First announced at E3 2018, Starfield is the anticipated sci-fi successor to standard Bethesda RPGs Fallout and The Elder Scrolls. Little is understood concerning the sport itself at this level. The Bethesda Engine was also confirmed to be getting its largest ever upgrade late final yr.
Microsoft’s acquisition of Bethesda in September 2020 raised questions on whether or not Starfield would stay multi-platform or would change into an unique. Deathloop, which was introduced earlier than the acquisition, stays a timed unique for PS5. Xbox has a historical past of being extra open to releasing its first-party titles on different platforms, with Ori and Minecraft Dungeons each releasing on Nintendo Switch.
Questions stay, but when these experiences are correct, we have now a significantly better sense of Xbox’s intentions for Bethesda and its different main acquisitions going ahead. Starfield doesn’t have a launch date but.
