Starfield PlayStation 5 release date looking closer than we'd have expected

Starfield PlayStation 5 release date looking closer than we'd have expected

PS5 gamers may soon be going to space

As with many exclusive titles these days, it appears as though Starfield won’t stay exclusive for long as one insider hints at a much closer release date for the PlayStation 5.

Originally released in September 2023 for the Xbox Series X/S and PC, Starfield is Bethesda’s latest RPG which takes the players to the outer reaches of space to acquire mysterious artifacts and join a band of space explorers.

Check out our review for Starfield below!

It was first announced that Starfield would be an Xbox exclusive way back in 2021 following Microsoft’s $7.5 billion acquisition of Bethesda's parent company, ZeniMax Media. As you can imagine, PlayStation fans were less than pleased despite the title also heading to PC alongside the Xbox Series X/S.

However, following the recent news that Microsoft is planning to make a lot of upcoming Xbox titles multiplatform after all, it seems as though Starfield will be one of the titles making the move a lot sooner than we originally thought.

Discovered on the ResetEra forums, one insider known as NateDrake said they believed both Starfield and other unnamed Xbox exclusives would be making their way to the PlayStation 5 in 2025.

More specifically, Starfield would be arriving to the Sony console as a complete edition and if this is to be believed, PlayStation users may only have a few months left until they can finally play the Bethesda RPG.

However, as this is rumours from an insider and not a confirmation from Bethesda or Xbox itself, it is worth taking the news with a pinch of salt.

Regardless, it appears the switch from Xbox exclusivity is performing well for Microsoft after Sea of Thieves recently arrived on the PlayStation 5. According to The Verge’s Tom Warren, Sea of Thieves was a test for Microsoft to see how well future migrations would work.
