Of course Starfield is late – what did you expect?

Earlier today, Bethesda confirmed what almost seemed inevitable: the much-acclaimed Starfield, the developer’s next big project and first new series forever, will not be making its release date of November 12, 2022. and Redfall, the new game from Arkane Austin, both have been pushed back to the first half of 2023 to offer “the best, most polished versions” of both.

Bethesda and Polish are two words that don’t really belong in the same sentence, but studios should never be criticized for delaying a product that needs it. With Starfield, it’s simply that many saw it coming from a mile away, despite repeated denials to the contrary. The game is apparently a massive, expansive new IP that supposedly marks a major technological leap, but six months after launch we hadn’t seen anything. Even at the end of 2021, this was arousing suspicion, leading Todd Howard to say that the release date was written “in ink, not pencil” – words that now seem false at best.
