I had to go look it up, and you're right. I guess I just have a hard time imagining a AAA launch happening without at least a year or more of leaks, screenshots, articles, interviews, etc.Fallout 4 proves otherwise.
But I agree that expectations for this to release in 2021 were highly optimistic.
They did show a CG announcement teaser, not the game.Well, they did show it, and we did see it.
They’ve done that style for their last 2 releases which is why people still think it’s coming out this year.I have to say I feel like we would have seen more of the game if it was to be released this year. Have we seen anything other than the logo? It could be a stealth release in that they announce and then release 3-5 months later but that seems like an exception not a rule and its not been Bethesda's way of announcing things in the past has it?
The voice of reason in this whole thread. The people who keep whining that 2021 is a ghost town keep forgetting that a pandemic happened. Nearly every game was affected. This entire year is a mulligan.I'm still in the camp called
"Starfield was supposed to be out in 2020, but due to COVID and Microsoft purchase, game was delayed to 2021"
Didn't fallout 4 get revealed at E3 and was released later that year? I would think the same situation would happen here to avoid another "radiant AI" situation or Fallout 3 vanishing turret embarrassment that was so bad they outright even removed it in the final game.
Tough one. Bethesda has done it in the past where they didn't show much of a game up until a few months before release. Normally I would say no way that 2021 is possible for Starfield and I still doubt that it happens, but I wouldn't be surprised if we see it at E3 this year and a release date this year.
No idea if Halo Infinite + Starfield could work side by side given the SciFi nature though.
Xbox desperately needs big games and 2021 holidays with 2 big games would for sure help sell a ton of Xboxes for Christmas
