Xbox Gaming Partnerships and Ecosystems VP Sarah Bond confirmed that Starfield will launch for PC and Xbox consoles in 2021.
“One of the things that has me most excited is seeing the roadmap with Bethesda’s future games, coming to Xbox console and PC including Starfield, the highly anticipated, new space epic currently in development by Bethesda Game Studios and Doom Eternal, which is coming to Xbox Game Pass on October 1 and for PC later in 2020.”
Starfield is one of the most exciting projects for 2021, the game is now an IP of Xbox after Microsoft acquires ZeniMax Studios. There has been uncertainty about the status of the project and if the game will be an Xbox exclusive.

Myster Man shared screenshots of the game on Twitter, revealing a third-person perspective looking at a structure in space. Some fans affirm that the pictures are taken from a 2018 build of the game. This could explain the lack of detail and the overall rough look of the images. The leaker affirmed last week that Bethesda would be launching the sci-fi game in 2021.
Fans are excited to see Bethesda’s first IP in 25 years, but some are even more thrilled for The Elder Scrolls 6, a game that will be available after the launch of Starfield.
Bethesda’s Todd Howard released an official statement after Microsoft acquires the company where he affirms that Bethesda will now be more capable to fulfill its vision.
“With each new console cycle, we evolved together. From bringing mods to consoles with Fallout 4, now over a billion downloads, to the latest technologies fueling Xbox Series X/S,” … “These new systems are optimized for the vast worlds we love to create, with generational leaps not just in graphics, but CPU and data streaming as well. It’s led to our largest engine overhaul since Oblivion, with all new technologies powering our first new IP in 25 years, Starfield, as well as The Elder Scrolls VI.”
