Redfall and Starfield Delayed

Bethesda tweets an update on Redfall and Starfield. On rare occasion, games come out early, but this is not one of them. Word is the releases of both the Redfall first-person shooter and the Starfield action/RPG are being pushed into the first half of next year:
We've made the decision to delay the launches of Redfall and Starfield to the first half of 2023.

The teams at Arkane Austin (Redfall) and Bethesda Game Studios (Starfield) have incredible ambitions for their games, and we want to ensure that you received the best, most polished versions of them.

We want to thank everyone for their excitement for Redfall and Starfield. That energy is a huge part of what inspires all of us every day and drives our own excitement for what we are creating.

We can't wait to share our first deep dive into the gameplay for both Redfall and Starfield soon.

Thank you for your support.

Elden Ring is now a shoe-in for GOTY. The only potential competition was Starfield.

Elden Ring... holy shit. Every time I think I'm getting close to the end of content, I find another gigantic area with its own bosses and unique drops and so forth. Obviously the game is light on role playing, but by the Fingers, does it deliver on exploration, combat, and gorgeous visuals and audio!

Although, fuck those giant Gargoyle guys, seriously.

They have shown exactly nothing from Starfield. No gameplay footage, no RPG systems or mechanics, apart from a very short cgi video and some very very sparse bits of lore, nothing about the actual game. Gamers have short memories, and I'm actually appalled but not surprised with the trust that people keep putting into developers that have screwed them over and over again. Fallout76 anyone? Todd Howard's lying antics? No one remembers, and no one actually cares.

Now Starfield might end up being the best thing since sliced bread. But it's probably best to reserve judgement until it's out in the wild. This sudden "delay" despite a previously "solid" release date is not exactly confidence inspiring. But hey, you guys keep on giving Bethesda the thumbs up, and don't forget to catch that hype train when it comes round the bend.

It sucks but it's also good.

I still feel all these delays are because of the market these days, not that delays didn't happen before but now it's like a given.

I'm still giddy I'll get to play these under gamepass. Assuming at this time Starfield/Gamepass will be modifiable, maybe wrong.

They've confirmed Starfield will have full mod support like previous titles.

It makes sense, given how many bugs modders fix that they just can't be bothered to deal with.

Either way I'm stoked for this game. I can wait an extra year.

They must be in a really sad state for them to be delayed since Bethesda has no problem launching half finished broken games in the past. It must even fall below their already low release standards.

I assume final approval is going to Microsoft who just "Oh no girlfriend, you're not going out like that." on the Zenimax gameplan.

Actually if you look back at all of the Skyrim and other Elder Scrolls games, they have all mostly had a November release date. But, Covid changed all of this.

Well, that's been their usual pre-release plan ever since excessively hyping Oblivion and getting bitched at incessantly for the game not living up to every single one of their promises. The pandemic has drawn out this dev cycle and forced them to remind people they're still alive and making games, but they don't show gameplay until it's ready.

Hrm, what the hell is Redfall? I have heard of Starfield, at least.

*EDIT* Oh nevermind, that multiplayer vampire game. I remember watching this trailer before, after finding it online.

Exactly. If they're delaying it for a year that means it needs at least 2 more years work.

Right !.... I know....
If we are going to wait for a Bethesda game to be bug free , we might be playing StarCitizen before StarField ...

Bummer, between this and BOTW2, I dunno what I'm looking forward to for the end of the year now. Pokemon, I guess.

Both games only have 10x the detail, and the player cannot "climb that mountain" in the distance.

Climbing mountains is for shouting neanderthals, in Starfield you're hopping in your spacecraft and flying to that celestial body you see up in the sky. Presumably.
