Two of Bethesda’s most well-known games will not meet their long-promised release date. The Microsoft-owned company has delayed both the sci-fi RPG starfield and Arkane’s vampire shooter redfall to the first half of 2023. The developers have “incredible ambitions” and need the extra time to deliver the “best, most polished” titles they can, according to Bethesda.
The studio promised “soon” in-depth gameplay explorations for the two projects. starfield was previously scheduled to ship on November 11 this year, while redfall was ready to be launched in the summer.
These certainly aren’t the only big games delayed to 2023. Nintendo’s Breath of the Wild sequel and EAs PGA tour are among those who have been pushed back. However, Bethesda’s delays may sting more than usual. starfield is a tentpole game that will show what the company can do under Microsoft’s wing while redfall builds on the hype of previous Arkane successes such as dishonored† Prey and death loop† The wait may be worth it, but they will prevent Bethesda from closing 2022 with some blockbuster releases.
