Bethesda postpones the releases of Starfield and Redfall until the first half of next year. The development teams of both games say they want to take more time to make the games as good as possible.
“We have made the decision to postpone the Redfall and Starfield launches until the first half of 2023,” writes Bethesda on Twitter. “The teams at Arkane Austin and Bethesda Game Studios have big ambitions for their games and we want to make sure you get the best, most polished versions of them.”
Bethesda thanks players for their enthusiasm for the two titles and promises to share the first ‘deep-dives’ into the gameplay of Starfield and Redfall ‘soon’. The studio doesn’t say when that will happen, but the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase is scheduled for June 12, in which parent company Microsoft will discuss upcoming games from Xbox Game Studios and Bethesda.
Starfield was scheduled for November 11, 2022, eleven years after the release of Skyrim. This title is in development at Bethesda Games Studios and will be a new RPG set in space. Dishonored and Deathloop creator Arkane is working on Redfall. This co-op shooter should be released this summer. Both games will be released on Xbox consoles and PC.
