Bethesda: An update on Redfall and Starfield.

Starfield and Redfall delayed to 2023.

"Here at Arkane Austin, we've decided to delay the launch of Redfall. The team needs more time to bring the game to life. Thank you so much for your continued support. Redfall is our most ambitious game yet, and we can’t wait to show it off soon. - Harvey Smith and Arkane Austin"

Sooo…what does Xbox have for 2022?

Terry_B741d ago

..gamepass? A ton of third party games you can also play on PC, Playstation and sometimes even on the Switch? Also DLC for Forza and Halo ..I guess.

darthv72741d ago

Well whatever they have will be shown next month.

Delays suck... but I have plenty of games to tide me over. Speaking of which.... backlogs suck too.

Terry_B741d ago

Nah..PC is the best platform right now. you get both sony and microsoft games + a ton more+ better prices + mods

Eonjay741d ago (Edited 741d ago )

Well this is better than releasing bugged out broken games and then acting like its okay or charming.
Also, this explains the lack of gameplay.

They got dlc for halo but not even finished that game, sounds about right 🙄🤣

@Terry_B basically yes, us PC gamers are just laughing along and lapping up all the goodies we get... while owning a second console in a PS and in my case, the Switch. I fail to logically understand MS's position in giving PC gamers access to their games but I'm sure not complaining and saving money compared to the PS3/X360 days.

jeromeface740d ago

@papabop they give them to pc to make sales... there's not even people jumping for xbox to justify development costs

Scissorman82740d ago

Don't forget about Deathloop!! XD

Om4ever740d ago

@lordofthecritics ... Good Idea ...pay the full Price for all these games. Excellent idea

I was thinking the exact same thing.Starfield was the only big big game I had on my radar for Xbox this year. So, what else is there?

SullysCigar741d ago

How many console sales did they bag off the back of this game releasing on time? Just like Halo Infinite before it.

Microsoft's tried and tested approach. Some people never learn; actions speak louder than words.

Once the games arrive - and if they're any good - there's a potential purchase to consider. Giving companies money in return for promises and disappointment is a mug's game.

EvertonFC741d ago

Don't you see a problem with that in year 2 of current gen for series S/X ?

Christopher741d ago

For me, it's Redfall as I like the concept. But I'm fine with the delay as long as it means a better end result. Arkane has been putting out good games, though, so I have some faith.

Neonridr741d ago

we shall see when they have their showcase I guess.

You’ll know next month. I suspect Ubisoft+ being added to Game Pass is more likely now. While I’m not “upset” about Starfield missing 2022 (I anticipated the delay), they need to do something big to soften this blow.

Mr Pumblechook741d ago

I suspect Microsoft has arranged to reveal Ubisoft+ around the same time PlayStation Plus relaunch as a spoiler tactic - cheeky buggers! 😆

rippermcrip741d ago

This isn't happening. U+ cost the same as UGP. They aren't just going to give it away for free with UGP.

U+ is coming to Xbox and Playstation as a separate offer. It isn't going to be included for free with anything.

Guess we'll find out on June 12...

sparky77741d ago

Pretty much nothing now, easily the worst year Xbox has had, this is like XB1 level.

@TheJackass
I guess Sifu, Gran Turismo 7, Horizon Forbidden West and Ghostwire Tokyo don't count then?

Of course, there is still Forespoken and God of War Ragnarock, Diofield Chronicle and Stray coming this year off the top of my head that i am personally excited for. Also, some pretty strong rumours of PSVR2 which is quite exciting.

SullysCigar741d ago (Edited 741d ago )

It's heartening to see you, Obscure_Observer and others acknowledge this for what it is. A genuine shame for gaming.

I'm fed up with hoping xbox will be better, but I don't want PlayStation to have a free reign and get cocky. I want the old xbox back and this news has ended my faith in Phil for good.

We can only hope Starfield will be AMAZING as a result of this delay, but even that prospect is of little solace right now.

Apparently Sony got 2022 all for themselves.

Shame.
