Starfield Direct Showcase Microsoft and Bethesda may announce a Developer Direct livestream for the upcoming science fiction FPS RPG Starfield. While officially unconfirmed, these rumors come from major figures in the gaming media with sources inside the industry.
Bethesda officially announced Starfield at E3 2018, though the developer trademarked the name in 2013 and had been working on the basic concept for some time before that. Set in the 2330s, players take the role of a space explorer from an organization called Constellation. Playable in first or third-person, Todd Howard described Starfield as “Skyrim in space,” and the game features both ground and space combat. Players can also customize their ships, establish colonies, and explore over 1000 planets. Bethesda plans to release Starfield sometime in the first half of this year but has yet to set a specific data
Furthermore, Rand claims that he has heard rumors since before The Game Awards indicating that Bethesda would hold a Starfield showcase in March or April 2023. Cordon also noted that he, Rand, and Robinson most likely do not get their information from the same collection of sources, meaning that a lot of different people are saying the same things. With multiple sources seemingly telling the same story consistently for so long, these rumors have a lot more credibility than they would otherwise.&nbs
Why was Starfield Cancelled?
If the company was counting on shipping Starfield in 2021, the COVID-19 pandemic likely slowed production, pushing it further
What will Starfield play like?
Since its first reveal, Starfield has been planned as a singleplayer action RPG. Bethesda currently has no plans to develop competitive PvP or co-op features for space explorers this time around. Other than Fallout 76 and The Elder Scrolls Online, it’s quite rare for Bethesda games to offer multiplayer functionality.
