The Bethesda team has been busy talking about Starfield ever since it received a proper reveal and release date at Xbox's E3 2021 Showcase this past Sunday, including a new behind-the-scenes video with a bunch of cool artwork.
Notably, speaking to The Washington Post earlier this week, Bethesda Game Studios executive producer Todd Howard described the game as "like Skyrim in space", and revealed that he's very confident in the November 2022 release date.
“We’re confident in the date, otherwise, we wouldn’t be announcing it.”
“This is going to sound cliche, but I mean it. When you look up in the sky, there is this drive to know, what is out there? Are we alone? What are the origins of space and time and all of those things? What role does religion play in some of that as well? So, we do get into some big questions. I think a game like this is a good place to do that.
"There are movies and books that have done it as well, but we haven’t seen a game do it in this way. And we’ll see how successful we’ll be.”
Bethesda managing director Ashley Cheng also delivered a memorable quote as part of the interview, calling the game a "Han Solo simulator" where you "get in a ship, explore the galaxy, do fun stuff.” It's previously been stated by Howard that Starfield will allow you to play in both first and third-person perspectives.
The team has confirmed it plans to show a lot more of Starfield - seemingly in the relatively near future - and while its release date is still over a year way, you can definitely feel the excitement in the Xbox community about this one.
