Starfield was among the titles announced at E3 by Bethesda with not much information about it. Starfield has been rumored to be a sci-fi game but people have been confused whether it’s an online only game or a single play only experience.
In a recent interview, Bethesda has confirmed that their upcoming game will be a single player experience. Starfield has been rumored to be in development since 2008 and it’s the first new IP from Bethesda in almost 25 years.
Bethesda is known for their The Elder Scrolls and Fallout games. However, they surprised everyone by telling that Fallout 76 is an online game which is something uncommon coming from Bethesda and concerned players about the upcoming game from the developers.
Pete Hines, Bethesda’s VP of Marketing said:
[The announcement] also helps convince folks, like, look, this is not forever-more what we’re doing. We are going to do a game that’s just single-player next time around, and yes, we are going to get to Elder Scrolls 6. There’s going to be a long time before we’re ready to talk about what those are, because we want the time between when we start to talk about it and it comes out to not be two years long or three years long. But it just gives folks a better idea of where we’re headed and understanding what the studio is working on and trying to do.
The company is going in a new direction with Fallout 76 by making it the first online game from Bethesda but they will focus on the single-player campaign for Starfield and The Elder Scrolls 6.
There has not been much known about the game except the title and it’s also expected to launch on the next-gen PS5 and the next Xbox which means we can expect the game to release in 2020 and 2021.
