Starfield is out in June claims insider as release date leak causes confusion


A recently spotted launch date for Starfield suggests Bethesda’s game will be out in June but there’s confusion as to how accurate it is.

After it was delayed out of 2022, Microsoft and Bethesda have said they’re committed to releasing Starfield within the first half of 2023.

The game wasn’t mentioned during the Xbox January showcase but Microsoft pre-empted this by saying it would get its own standalone event later.

Hopefully, that’s when Microsoft will announce a proper release date, and put fans out of their misery, but for now word has spread of a leaked release date of June 29. Although it’s not clear if that’s accurate by accident or design.

The listing was spotted earlier this month by noted Valve leaker Tyler McVicker, but only got widespread attention over the weekend.

The date is believable, since it just about falls within Bethesda’s target window and Microsoft rarely releases its own exclusives on a Friday.

As discovered by Twitter user IdleSloth, the release date has been on the GOG Galaxy service since as early as July 12 last year, just a couple months after Starfield’s initial delay was announced.

Starfield launches for Xbox Series X/S and PC in 2023.
