Starfield will be available to play relatively soon on select platforms, according to a new Bethesda Support document that states the new sci-fi RPG from the studio behind The Elder Scrolls and Fallout series will arrive exclusively for the Xbox Series X|S and PC in the first half of 2023.

“Starfield arrives exclusively on Xbox Series X|S and PC in the first half of 2023,” reads the answer to the question, “What is Starfield’s release date?”

There is nothing more to the support document, but it seems to confirm that Starfield won’t be released on competing platforms, including PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch consoles.

Bethesda previously teased a H1 2023 release for Starfield back in May 2022, sharing a tweet that month that revealed the game would be delayed to 2023 so the team could fulfill its “incredible ambitions” for the title and making sure that it’s polished.

“Starfield is the first new universe in 25 years from Bethesda Game Studios, the award-winning creators of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Fallout 4,” reads a description for the game directed by Todd Howard, who is also leading The Elder Scrolls VI.

“In this next generation role-playing game set amongst the stars, create any character you want and explore with unparalleled freedom as you embark on an epic journey to answer humanity’s greatest mystery.”

Howard revealed in October 2022 that Starfield would have over 250,000 lines of dialog, dwarfing the amount of voice work that can be found in previous Bethesda games, such as Fallout 4 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Redfall, Arkane Austin’s vampire shooter, is also slated for release in the first half of 2023.
