According to Jason Schreier, some Starfield developers had serious concerns about the planned release in November.
Yesterday Bethesda announced that the space role-playing game Starfield will not be released on November 11 this year as planned. Instead, fans will have to wait until the first half of 2023.
The move was necessary to ensure players received the best, most polished version of the sci-fi title upon release, Bethesda said.
As now Jason Schreier via Twitter reported that the planned release date of November 11th raised serious concerns among some developers:
“Last spring before E3, I spoke to a few people about Starfield who were extremely concerned about committing to a 11/11/22 date based on their progress to date. Apparently the term ‘next cyberpunk’ has been floating around, which is about as worrying as it can get. Good for Bethesda that they pushed it back for that specific date despite the announcement.”
Responding to the objection that Cyberpunk 2077 was released in a miserable state despite the postponements, Schreier countered that the postponement of the role-playing game developed by CD Projekt Red wasn’t long enough.
Despite the postponement, according to Bethesda, new information about Starfield and the Redfall, which has also been postponed, will soon follow. The June 12th Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase would be a good opportunity to do that.
