Bethesda’s Starfield and Redfall titles have been postponed until next year, the company revealed on Thursday. Bethesda Game Studios, the company behind Elder Scrolls and Fallout, will release their latest single-player Roleplaying title, Starfield, later this year. Arkane Studios, widely renowned for Dishonored and Deathloop, has created Redfall, an open-world FPS.
The company acknowledged the postponements in a statement sent out on Thursday. The purchase of Bethesda by Microsoft meant that these two titles would be unique to Xbox systems for the first time, making them two of the biggest releases of the autumn.

Microsoft will acquire Bethesda Softworks as well as ZeniMax Entertainment in November of last year. Following the acquisition, a number of well-known gaming companies, including Bethesda, id, and Arkane, became part of Microsoft Game Studios. Doom, Wolfenstein, Quake, and Prey also fall within the purview of these groups, in conjunction with Elder Scrolls and Fallout.

The takeover of Activision Blizzard for $68.7 billion in February was Microsoft’s largest-ever game transaction. Playstation 4 and Xbox One were still supported, however, the former made it plain that subsequent Bethesda titles will not be accessible on PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 5. In March, Bethesda released Ghostwire: Tokyo, their penultimate multiplatform adventure.
Given how frequently huge launches are postponed by companies, this shouldn’t spring as much of a shock One of the grounds Bethesda titles are so famous is due to their size. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’s development team is continuously churning out new iterations a generation following the title’s original debut, and they’re all doing well.
Starfield is the royal gem of Microsoft’s purchase because of this reasoning. Over the last 25 years, the company has not generated fresh intellectual assets. It’s likewise the group’s debut single-player Roleplaying title since Fallout 4 was released in 2015. Regardless of when it is released, Starfield would be a major event.
What is Redfall about?
Redfall is a little more known than Starfield. The four protagonists in this multiplayer first-person shooting each have their individual distinct talents. In Redfall, Massachusetts, players will join forces with allies to take on vampires and other threats. Redfall is being developed by the original group that created Prey and Dishonored.
The actual video of either title has yet to be released, however, we may expect it in the near future. In both titles, Bethesda promises a “first deep dive into mechanics” shortly. One possibility is the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase, which is scheduled to take place later this year.
