I’d say second half of June, squeeze every bit of possible hype from that lime…

Might be delayed according to this YouTuber with the trust me bro source 😏

"According to YouTuber MrMattyPlays, Starfield might not launch in the first half of 2023.

"Starfield is getting a possible bump out of the first half because it's currently undated," MrMattyPlays said in the latest episode of Defining Duke podcast. He clarified that the delay is not significant and that Starfield should still release this summer. "Still [coming this] Summer but possibly [delayed] out of the first half"

YouTuber added that the source who revealed this information to him was spot on before. "This source is someone that I trust quite a bit and they've been very correct...nothing from that source has been wrong," Matty explained."

MattyPlays isn’t just some scrub. FYI.

Not saying it’s accurate of course. Regardless this is nothing that any one of us couldn’t have guessed at and maybe been right anyways. A game of this scope and ambition not to mention importo the brand? Could totally see it slip to late summer or even fall.

It's possible he is correct. He is an Xbox fanboy it seems as well.

Honestly I hope this release does slip to later in the year. Iron out those bugs.

Funny part is Sony Bros are going to crucify this game no matter how it turns out.

“ glad MS took this stinker away from us”

“don’t care our exclusives speak for themselves MS bought a s*** game”

“I wasn’t going to play it anyways…”

June 21st is the start of summer….so maybe the 21st for GamePass and preorders and then the 23 for the actual release date? But who knows, besides those working on it.

I am buying digital on this one. Gamepass PC is too restricted. Can't mod or tweak. A game like Starfield will thrive on PC as other RPGs, by Bethesda, before it.

1k planets to explore reminds me of the statement made by the devs who made Dying Light 2. You guys might remember when they stated that it'll take "500 hrs" to complete everything in the game. Yeah, that was a load of BS, a fun game but it was a collectathon in areas with reused assets which made almost all the interior spaces look the same which got boring real quick.

I'm not sure the devs for this game are trying to over promise but it seems likely that a number that high for places to explore is highly inflated or devoid of anything worth seeing in the first place. I hope I'm wrong, I really do. I think we need a new sci-fi RPG ASAP.

Well Todd did say that they let the players know which planets are procedurally generated and which are hand crafted.

The number is feasible. I mean No Mans Sky has unlimited planets.

Plus, A comment they made before about AI placing missions and content(buildings, trees, etc) randomly indicates that all 1000 planets will have stuff to see, do, and likely collect.

No Man's Sky planets are barren and boring to explore, I find. There were a few planets I came across that looked visually great but that was all they had to offer and pretty landscapes don't hold interest for very long.

I just haven't come across a game that used procedurally generated content to great effect. I remember The Division 2 DLC that used it and at first I loved it. But that good feeling quickly faded when almost all the levels were so similar/samey.

Like I said, I'd love to be wrong. I'm hoping this is in fact the "Skyrim" in space its being made out to be. Fingers, toes and arms crossed that Starfield is a mega hit.

But that is what planets are like. It was trying to mimmick that.

Division 2's issue was they limited what it could create by keeping too environment specific.

AI based technologies have come along way too. How good they will be in Starfield is a guess right now, but at the very least we know that, unlike NMS, if we visit a planet there will be something to do on it.
