Starfield was originally set for November 2022, as it was expected to be one of the biggest Xbox games of the year. He and Redfall are joining other high-profile exclusives like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 next year.
The initial announcement of the delay also states that we’ll soon see a “first deep dive into Redfall and Starfield,” which will likely refer to the Xbox/Bethesda Summer Showcase on June 12.
When it finally comes out, it will be the first major look fans will get in either game. So far, no gameplay has been released for either, though Bethesda has provided a number of glimpses into Starfield – from the game’s bot companion to the versatile game.
So far, no official date has been set for either Starfield or Redfall, but the current timeline set for both is the first half of 2023.
