Starfield Delayed Again, Launches in September
Bethesda has delayed Starfield once again, as the game will now launch in September for PC and Xbox Series X and S. There will also be a Starfield Direct on June 11, right after the Xbox Games Showcase.
In a new official launch date announcement trailer (below), Bethesda’s Todd Howard confirmed that the highly anticipated game will release this year
“We have poured ourselves into this game and even I’m surprised how much we can pour. It is large. We’re playing the game all the time,” he explained.
The Starfield Direct in June will provide a deep dive into the game, as Howard continued: “There’s so much that we still have to show you. The game has many of the hallmarks that you’d expect from us, but it’s also a very unique experience.”
Earlier this year, Phil Spencer hinted that Microsoft and Xbox would have a presence around the E3, with his Starfield Direct lining up perfectly.
The game was originally set to launch on November 11, 2022, but was delayed into the first half of 202, and now, finally, has been confirmed for September 6.
