Bethesda Confirms Redfall and Starfield Delays After Not Showing Either Game for a Year

Bethesda has announced two games it’s shown basically nothing of in the past year are not coming any time soon, as both Redfall and Starfield have been pushed into the first half of next year.

News of this came from a post on the company’s social channels, which confirmed Arkane Austin and Bethesda Game Studios’ upcoming projects won’t be making it to your personal computers and consoles in 2022. The full announcement reads as follows:

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.

An update on Redfall and Starfield.

In other news:

Again, neither of these delays are particularly surprising considering there’s been pretty much nothing shown of either all year. Redfall was only even announced about a year ago during Microsoft and Bethesda’s E3 showcase, so if the game was even close to coming out, that would’ve been a long stretch of time without more chatter. Starfield has had a little bit more time in the public eye, but even then it hasn’t amounted to any screen time. So it checks out that neither game would be making it this year. These delays do mean Bethesda is lacking in a major game for the latter half of 2022. But it did publish Ghostwire: Tokyo back in March.
