With Microsoft’s acquisition of Bethesda’s parent company ZeniMax now officially set in stone, there’s quite a bit of exclusive content for anyone with Xbox Game Pass to look forward to. Bethesda has quite a few big games in the works, of course, and the biggest of these is probably Starfield. People have been looking forward to the sci-fi RPG for some time now, and it seems like it might just arrive in the not-so-distant future.

In his recent Xbox Two podcast (via Pure Xbox), Xbox insider Rand al’Thor said that Microsoft and Bethesda are trying their hardest to get Starfield out by Holiday this year. He added that the game’s development is essentially done, and Bethesda are currently in the process of polishing the game. Meanwhile, he also stated that Starfield will without a doubt be an Xbox console exclusive- which shouldn’t surprise you at this point, honestly. It’s a Microsoft-owned property, after all.

“I’ve been told, by very reliable people that Starfield was 100% an Xbox exclusive,” he said. “I’ve even made bets about it, and I don’t bet unless I know I’m willing to bet. So I’m really, really confident that Starfield is only releasing on Xbox when it does, and I’ve been told as well that Microsoft is trying their hardest to get the game out for this holiday. They really want Starfield out this holiday.

The game’s basically sort of finished – it’s in bug squashing mode right now, very much like Halo Infinite, and it would be a big boon for Game Pass and Xbox if both Halo and Starfield could launch this fall.”

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard similar reports about Starfield. The game’s allegedly been targeting a late 2021 launch for some time now, and recently, it was also reported that Microsoft intended to unveil the game in full at E3 and then launch it later in the year.
