In case there was any doubt, for whatever reason.

Talk about Starfield has been heating up these last few weeks and months, but the one question that’s been around for significantly longer than that is that of what platforms it will launch for. Now that Bethesda is owned by Microsoft, can PlayStation players expect to see the upcoming sci-fi RPG on their platform of choice?

Journalist Jeff Grubb recently took to Twitter and claimed, quite definitively, that Starfield is going to be exclusive to PC and Xbox. Whether or not the game will cross-gen remains to be seen (it would be safe to assume that it will be), but if Grubb’s words are anything to go by, a PlayStation launch is off the table.

That, honestly, shouldn’t be surprising to anyone. Microsoft paid a lot of money for Bethesda, so it’s no surprise that they want Bethesda’s biggest upcoming games exclusively for their own platforms. When the acquisition was finalized, Xbox boss Phil Spencer suggested that Bethesda content would be exclusive to platforms where Xbox Game Pass is available– so again, the writing’s been on the wall for some time.

Starfield currently has no launch date, but reports have suggested that the game’s going to be at E3 next month, and that Microsoft is pushing for a Holiday 2021 launch. Meanwhile, recently a bunch of screenshots from a 2018 build of the game also leaked- take a look through here.
