It sounds like we are going to have to wait longer than originally expected for two new Bethesda games. In a tweet that was sent out by the game publisher on May 12th, the company announced that it would be delaying the release of both Redfall and Starfield until next year.
According to the tweet, both of these games are now slated to come out in the first half of 2023 rather than later this year. In the same statement, Bethesda said, “the teams at Arkane Austin and Bethesda Game Studios have incredible ambitions for their games, and we want to ensure that you receive the best, most polished versions of them.” The company went on to thank fans for their excitement surrounding these games and said it “can’t wait” to share the gameplay experiences of both Redfall and Starfield soon.
Based on reports from Polygon, this statement leads us to believe that we will get our first look at both games during the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase. That event is scheduled for June 12th.
Starfield will be a science-fiction role-playing game that’s being created by the same people that made the Elder Scrolls series. Meanwhile, Redfall will be an open-world co-op shooter game that follows the style and formatting of Left 4 Dead. Both games are expected to be available on PCs and Xbox Game Pass the day they are released.
