Before we can all dive into the RPG epic The Elder Scrolls VI, Bethesda’s potential sci-fi hit Starfield is known to be released. According to a new rumor, the game could even be released in the current year 2021.
Most recently, Bethesda made headlines primarily because of its takeover by Microsoft. Now, however, the developer and publisher’s upcoming blockbusters should finally come back into focus – and Starfield will initially play a key role in this.
The sci-fi game is the next big title to be released by Bethesda but is still waiting for a more detailed introduction. According to a new rumor, this shouldn’t be too long in coming. And: Even a publication in the current year 2021 does not seem off the table.
At least that’s what Jeff Grubb, a renowned reporter at VentureBeat, claims in a new edition of a dealer gaming stream. In the past, Grubb had accurately leaked upcoming announcements several times; as he is very well networked in the industry, his statements have weight.
In the said stream, Grubb puts the chance at 90 percent that Starfield will finally be presented around this year’s E3. Subsequently, a release around the month of November – i.e. in time for the Christmas business – is conceivable, at least if the further development around COVID-19 does not spoil the bill.
Bethesda had held its own presentations at E3 in recent years. Also this year the US fair will presumably be held digitally and Bethesda is to plan its own showcase – in which Starfield will then play a leading role.
Starfield was first confirmed at E3 2018 and is slated for release before The Elder Scrolls VI. For the first time, Bethesda’s in-house engine, which has been redesigned on a large scale, is to be used.
