Starfield: What is the release date?

Starfield is due to be released on 16th November 2022.

Bethesda have kept themselves busy during the COVID-19 pandemic by the looks of things after Starfield was announced during E3 2021.

The developers of Fallout 76 unveiled their sci-fi thriller during, arguably, the biggest gaming expo of the year as part of Xbox and Bethesda’s showcase.

It had been a long time coming after plenty of discussions had taken place about the game itself. But while there is not an awful lot we know at this stage, the developers provided a glimpse of what players can expect. 

Bethesda’s Todd Howard told The Washington Post that Starfield was “like Skyrim in space” and features a group of human explorers that are hunting for answers. He also confirmed that the game will be playable in both first and third-person perspectives, something we have seen with both Skyrim and the Fallout series.

Supposedly derived from a cancelled project back in 1997, the development of the game has been ongoing since the release of Fallout 4 back in November 2015, which means that there could be plenty more for players across the globe to expect in the coming months.
