Rumor: Bethesda’s Starfield could get released in 2021

Starfield is the long-rumored science-fiction title from Bethesda Game Studios. Starfield is the first of the two upcoming major triple-A titles from Bethesda. The second upcoming title is The Elder Scrolls VI. Last year, Microsoft acquired Bethesda for 7.5 billion dollars.

According to an insider, Microsoft and Bethesda were aiming to release the game in 2021. This was their initial goal, but due to unforeseen circumstances the intended goal might have been affected. “How major the impacts due to COVID have been on the title is anyone’s guess, but 2021 was the intended goal for release as of a few months ago”.

However, nothing is certain at this point, and neither Microsoft nor Bethesda has officially responded. “I’m not saying it’ll 100% for certain happen; but, as of late last year, I was hearing the goal was to launch this year. But it is a Bethesda game and delays or issues may arise to prevent the release from coming”.

Lastly, Fallout 4 and Fallout 76, both announced and released in their respective years. Based on that, Starfield could probably be released this year. As always, we will make sure to keep you informed about any further developments.
