We're going to be honest, we're not totally convinced on this rumour, but it's so crazy it might just be true. In the sea of Starfield rumours which consistently seem to be making their rounds, today's seems to indicate that Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise could be making an appearance in the game.
These claims come various "insiders" on Reddit, who say that Cruise was approached by Bethesda to have a starring role in the upcoming space RPG. This all stems back to a tweet from 2018, in which Bethesda reached out to Cruise on Twitter, asking if he would want to get a "head start" on their next project, crediting his work on the 2013 sci-fi film, Oblivion.
Now, there's very little proof on this claims so far, but the tweet from 2018 is extremely interesting. It could just have been a bit of playful banter, not long after the initial announcement of Starfield, but then again, the gaming industry isn't shy from bringing in Hollywood A-listers to bolster their product. Bethesda also has been known for bringing in voice talent, such as Liam Neeson for Fallout 3 and Patrick Stewart for The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.
Just take a look at Cyberpunk 2077. The game was a highlight of Xbox's 2019 E3 conference after Keanu Reeves was not only revealed for the title, but walked on stage to announce his involvement. Could we see a similar moment during this year's E3 presentation? While we won't have the crowd reaction if we do, no doubt the internet will explode if these rumours come to fruition.
