Bethesda has confirmed the delay of Starfield and Redfall into the first half of 2023 via Twitter. Redfall was pencilled for a Summer 22 release, with Starfield was originally planned for release on 11th November 2022, making the Starfield And Redfall delayed announcement a bit of a shock:
Starfield And Redfall Delayed
2022s release schedule is looking empty now Redfall and Starfield has been delayed into the first half of 2023 from their respective summer 2022 and 11th November 2022 release dates.
Of course, this is very disappointing, but considering the size and scope of these projects and Bethesdas’ keen eye for detail and reputation of day one glitches, this is a good thing.
Starfield is Bethesda’s answer to the Elder Scrolls and Fallout game in space with a veil of realism. it looks like they’ll be plenty of nods to humanity’s endeavours when it comes to space travel alongside an element of that Star Wars-style “lived-in” aesthetic we all love.
Granted, a delay for Starfield should have been a solid prediction given how little we’ve seen of the open-world/galaxy game so far. Although it did seem like Bethesda had everything in hand with their developer diary updates. We’ve also not seen an update from the aforementioned series since 16th March.
Redfall is the next game from Dishonored devs Arkane Studios. Armed with a cult following of loyal fans, Arkane is working on Redfall, an open-world co-op first-person shooter.
It’s a far cry from its routes in historical and futuristic fantasy, but who cares when such a creative studio is willing to take these kinds of risks?
Officially, we only have the announcement trailer to go off for now. Leaks made their way online in September 2021, showing off early development builds of the game. Whilst they gave fans an idea of gameplay elements, these leaks likely do not represent the current version of Redfall behind the scenes.
This is a developing story, more news as it happens.
