Starfield Will Reportedly Take Up 20 Minutes Of The Xbox And Bethesda Showcase
Starfield fans are in for a treat, according to industry insider Tom Henderson. Bethesda's highly anticipated new IP will reportedly take up around 15 to 20 minutes of the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase later today, giving us our best look at the RPG yet.
This comes shortly after many were disappointed by the news of its delay, now planned to launch in the first half of 2023. However, with Starfield now set to apparently take up so much time at today's showcase, it's possible that we'll get a new release date, on top of some new gameplay footage.
"A significant portion of the showcase will be Starfield, from my understanding", Henderson explains. "What I mean by significant is maybe 15… 20 minutes of the showcase. So it will be a decent portion of the showcase."
Henderson goes on to explain that Redfall will also make an appearance, as well as some other Bethesda titles. "There's going to be two other games from Bethesda, I believe. But they are not necessarily huge games." This suggests that no, we won't be getting any significant Elder Scrolls 6 news – and almost definitely nothing about Fallout 5. But, it does show that Bethesda fans will have a lot to look forward to.
Skip to around the 14-minute mark in the above stream to hear Henderson's thoughts on Starfield for yourself.
A heavy focus on Starfield isn't too surprising, given recent news. A page on Xbox Game Pass states that the RPG is set to launch "early 2023" – whereas the official line is that it will be with us in the first half of the year. If the Game Pass listing is accurate, then that could suggest that the delay is not as significant as once thought. This will be a relief to Xbox fans, as rumour has it that they won't have many games to look forward to for the rest of 2022, given all the delays.
The Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase is set to kick off today. It will start at 10am PT / 1pm EST / 6pm BST, and run for 90 minutes. You can watch it on both YouTube and Twitch.
