There has been a lot happening in the gaming community in anticipation of Starfield‘s impending release. Xbox, for one, has scheduled a special event for the game, and the release date is rumored to be in the first half of 2023. The Steam page for the game was just revised, switching the release date from “2023” to “Coming Soon.”
Microsoft previously stated that Starfield’s release will follow that of Redfall, and today we learned that Redfall would be released on May 2nd. This indicates that it would likely be released during the month of June, however, the recent change in release date has sparked numerous concerns.
Even though the new time frame is somewhat less specific than the previous one, it may actually be exciting. In the case of games labeled as “Coming in 2023,” Steam’s backend will schedule the release for December 31, 2023. When a date range is provided, such as “Coming in April 2023,” Steam will always utilize the latest date provided. However, because we now have “Coming soon,” this is no longer the case.
With Steam’s backend data no longer contradicting Bethesda’s claims, it seems certain that Starfield will be released in the first half of 2023. Even though this too is merely speculation, there are very less chances that the game will be further delayed, keeping in mind that the news for its separate showcase came out just earlier this week.
For those unaware, Starfield is one of the most anticipated games of this year. In Starfield, the action takes place in a region called The Settled Systems, which is located roughly 50 light-years from Earth. A war known as the Colony War broke out between the game’s two major powers, the United Colonies and the Freestar Collective, in the early 2310s.
The events of the game take place twenty years after the conflict when the major factions are now living in relative peace with one another. Constellation puts the user in control of a fully customizable character who is a member of the group and undertakes space exploration missions.
