Hogwarts Legacy and Starfield are two of the biggest titles of this year. The former is already a few days away from launching while the latter is still uncertain. Now, there are leaks out there suggesting that Starfield is not in the best shape to release this year. Despite the fact that the launch window is set for 2023, a leaker claims the development of Starfield is taking a lot of time. This isn’t too crazy to believe, as this leaker has been right about previous things. Also, Starfield seems to be one of the biggest if not the biggest games Bethesda has made, so a delay or a rocky launch could happen.
Leaks suggest Starfield is in rough shape and not ready for release
Leaks come from the person that showed Tango Networks’ latest game, which was definitely announced in the last showcase. Now, this leaker claims that the development of Starfield needs more time as it’s not ready for release. This isn’t too crazy to believe, since the game will be huge. According to the last showcase, there are a lot of planets to explore. This means that we could be facing a No Man’s Sky type of launch if the game doesn’t stay in the oven for more time.
Bethesda is Planning a Release Date Announcement for Starfield
Even with that, many fans are hopeful for the game to launch this year. While the date changed on Steam, the release window is still set for 2023. We don’t know what day, but the leaker also claims Starfield could release before June 2023. This lines up with the end of the fiscal year for the company. Another game that made the leaks was Redfall, which is in better shape, but not great. So, while we have no official confirmation, it is important to take the leaks as such. Nothing’s official until the company announces it. Here, we can only hope for Starfield to launch this year because we’re eager to play an open-world Bethesda game.
