Bethesda has announced that two of their upcoming releases – Starfield and Redfall – have been delayed until “the first half of 2023”

Announcing the news on social media, the studio didn’t give a specific reason for the delays other than to say it was to grant the teams more time to “ensure that you receive the best, most polished versions of them.”

The studio was quick to reassure fans that they will still be seeing footage from both games “soon” with gameplay deep dives, with many fans speculating this will be happening during the Xbox & Bethesda Summer Showcase which has been announced for June 12.

This message was followed up with comments from both Bethesda Game Studios, who are making Starfield, along with Arkane Studio’s director Harvey Smith, who explained that Redfall was their “most ambitious game yet” and more time was needed to “bring the game to life”

Starfield had originally been scheduled to launch on November 11, 2022, while Redfall had been due for release “this summer”. Both games are currently planned to be exclusive to Xbox and PC at launch.
