With all the news surrounding Bethesda Softworks as of late, especially with its acquisition at the hands of Microsoft, the questions surrounding Starfield and The Elder Scrolls 6 haven’t stopped. When will we hear more? When are they releasing? At least for the former, the goal seems to have been this year according to insider NateDrake on ResetEra.

Responding to comments by VentureBeat’s Jeff Grubb on Microsoft holding an event in March, NateDrake said, “There has been a strong hope and desire to have Starfield launch this yer. How major the impacts due to COVID have been on the title is anyone’s guess, but 2021 was the intended goal for release as of a few months ago.”

Of course, he made sure to clarify that it’s not guaranteed to happen. “I’m not saying it’ll 100% for certain happen; but, as of late last year, I was hearing the goal was to launch this year. But it is a Bethesda game and delays or issues may arise to prevent the release from coming.”

If it does release this year, it would certainly fit Bethesda’s M.O. for releasing titles. Both Fallout 4 and Fallout 76 were revealed and released in their respective years. As for the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen this affect development for other Bethesda-published titles like Arkane Studios’ Deathloop.

Even if the company wants to follow the same process for Starfield, it will be interesting to see how Microsoft factors in. If the rumored March event following Bethesda’s acquisition is indeed taking place, we may learn more there. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
