Starfield, the great space role-playing game of Bethesda, will not arrive on PlayStation consoles. After all, Microsoft has confirmed it again in its streaming conference on the occasion of E3 2021.
The game, which will be available on Xbox Game Pass from day one, is in fact shown with a gameplay video complete with a release date.
After weeks of rumors and news, following the acquisition of ZeniMax by Microsoft, it was therefore confirmed that the title will not be released on the PS5 platform.
Now, Pete Hines of Bethesda, however, has turned to PlayStation players, apologizing to them for the issue of exclusivity, as stated in an interview with GameSpot (via Kotaku).
“I don’t know how to dispel the perplexities of PlayStation 5 fans other than to say that i am a PS5 player too, I have played various titles on that console and there are other games that I look forward to “, Hines said.
«All I can say is ‘sorry’, as I’m sure it’s frustrating for people, but there’s not much I can do about it “, concluded the vice president of Bethesda.
Hines’ statements clash quite sharply with those of Todd Howard, recently interviewed by our colleagues from the Telegraph.
The director of Starfield as well as boss of Bethesda Game Studios has in fact commented on the farewell to the PlayStation platforms which will be consumed from 2022.
“By focusing on those platforms, you can really focus on making it the best it can be for those systems”said Howard, who later defined himself “Proud to be part of Xbox, a great thing for the gamer community.”
The official description of Starfield reads:
In this next-generation RPG set among the stars, create the character you want and explore with unprecedented freedom on an epic journey to uncover the answer to humanity’s greatest mystery.
