Starfield, the latest big RPG developed by Bethesda, will be released on PlayStation 5 sometime in the future, according to rumors circulating online.
As reported by XboxEra, sources who asked to remain anonymous as they were not authorized to talk about Microsoft’s plans revealed that the Bethesda RPG will hit Sony’s current generation console some time after the game’s first DLC expansion, Shattered Space, launches on PC and Xbox Series X|S, which is set for release this year. Apparently, Microsoft made some additional investment into PS5 dev kits to support ongoing development efforts, which supposedly also include Hi-Fi Rush and Sea of Thieves ports, the former to be officially announced this month.
As Starfield is arguably one of the biggest Xbox exclusives released so far, its release on PlayStation 5 signals a certain shift in Microsoft’s business strategy. As such, it will be very interesting to see what direction the company will take in the future regarding its gaming offerings, the game is indeed releasing on Sony’s console.
Starfield is now available on PC, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S worldwide. You can learn more about the game in my review.
With an engaging story, well-developed characters and lore, and a huge amount of meaningful content, Starfield is one of Bethesda’s finest games and one of the best role-playing games released in the past few years. The lack of seamless exploration and real innovation of the typical gameplay formula from the studio are noteworthy, but those willing to forego these issues will find a reactive and sprawling sci-fi universe to lose themselves in for hundreds, if not thousands, of hours.
