It was inevitable – expected, even – but this is the confirmation we’ve been waiting for: Bethesda’s next-gen sci-fi role-playing game, Starfield, will not release on PlayStation 5 or PS4. While the game would have been targeting Sony’s systems at one stage – there was even rumours that the Japanese giant was trying to negotiate timed exclusivity – those platforms have now been canned. The title is coming to Xbox Series X|S and PC – there’s no room even for Xbox One, which is perhaps the slightly bigger surprise here.
Microsoft had been cagey about whether it would continue to release games on PlayStation platforms, but clarified its stance when it said that Bethesda games would release “where Game Pass exists” earlier in the year. That’s obviously not on PS5 or PS4, and so here we are.
