It's happened folks, Starfield has officially been delayed and we're still coming to terms with it. However, delays often result in better games, and a Tweet from Bloomberg's Jason Schreier only serves to highlight what could have happened without a delay.
Schreier dropped this little anecdote on Twitter, just after Bethesda announced a delay to Starfield. Developers working on the game were reportedly worried that the 2022 release date could have led to a rough launch, or even, the "next Cyberpunk", of course referring to Cyberpunk 2077's launch.
Apparently, this conversation happened around a year ago, so it's hardly a representation of how the game is shaping up in 2022. However, if true, some developers were clearly worried about the launch date and its potential affect on the game's quality.
For now, all we know for sure is that Starfield is aiming to release sometime in the first half of 2023.
What do you make of Starfield's delay? Is it a good thing? Let us know in the comments.
