Starfield and Redfall have been Delayed, What Will We Play Now?

After the Xbox/Bethesda buyout occurred, fans were shocked, excited, and worried all at once. One of the largest things about this purchase was that Xbox would have games like Elder Scrolls, Doom, and many other Bethesda first-party titles now exclusive on the Xbox.

Though some fans were sad about this news, I was excited to learn that Bethesda now had more financial backing to make their titles even more amazing. With that said, you cant turn a lump of coal into a diamond overnight and we learned that this morning.

Bethesda has officially announced that not only Redfall but Starfield as well have now been delayed to Q1/Q2 of 2023. This decision was made to give Bethesda Game Studio and Arkane Austin more time to work out last-minute problems and polish the game to its “best”.

We’ve made the decision to delay the launches of Redfall and Starfield to the first half of 2023. The teams at Arkane Austin (Redfall) and Bethesda Game Studios (Starfield) have incredible ambitions for their games, and we want to ensure that you receive the best, most polished versions of them. We want to thank everyone for their excitement for Redfall and Starfield. That energy is a huge part of what inspires all of us every day and drives our own excitement for what we are creating. We can’t wait to share our first deep dive into the gameplay for both Redfall and Starfield soon. Thank you for your support.

Though this is sad news for fans, this is always for the best and I still can’t wait for the Xbox/Bethesda Press event in June to finally see what these two games have to offer. With that said, some of you might be asking what games will you play now that these two are delayed.

Don’t worry, below I have listed some games coming out in the next few months that you should play while you wait for these amazing Bethesda titles to release…
