Expectations are getting longer for fans of Starfield and Redfall: the expected release year is now 2023 as announced (reluctantly) by Bethesda
Bad news for anyone who took it for granted to play Starfield and the Redfall before 2023: the year scheduled for day one is now this. The statement, understandably painful, came from the official Twitter profile of Bethesda. In the image included in the post, including a considerable amount of text, the publisher has emphasized the ambition of the development teams involved, none of which are willing to compromise. While we are pleased with the priority given to the quality of the finished product, we have hoped until the end not to carry this announcement.
There is no Starfield and Redfall, it is expected until 2023
“We have decided to postpone the launch of Redfall and Starfield to the first half of 2023”: this is how the Bethesda press release opens. “The teams at Arkane Austin (Redfall) and Bethesda Game Studios (Starfield) have incredible ambition for their games, and we want to make sure you get the best and most refined version of the product.” Thanking everyone for their enthusiasm about the postponed titles, Bethesda recognized fan passion as a primary source of motivation. The first look at the gameplay, therefore, it will wait. “Thanks again to all of you for your support.”

Prior to the postponement, Starfield was scheduled for November 11 this year (11/11/22), and would be one of the “heavyweights” for the holiday season. Of course, being a first-party title, it would have come out directly (also) on Xbox Game Pass. The game, announced in 2018, has been described as a “next-gen role-playing game” in space, as well as “a Han Solo simulator” and “a cross between NASA and Indiana Jones.” Redfall, for its part, is the vampire-themed shooter from Arkane, the development team behind Dishonored. With the exception of a few leaks, the game remained shrouded in total silence of the press.
