We're eagerly anticipating any news on that next Developer Direct here at Pure Xbox - a show that's set to focus solely on Bethesda's Starfield. While the huge open world RPG didn't feature in last week's showcase, the game is due to launch this year, and a new article from Windows Central suggests that development is in its final stages.

In response to a leaked Starfield release date via PC storefront CDKeys — a date that's apparently inaccurate and merely a placeholder — the outlet dropped some info on how development is coming along at Bethesda. Here's where things are, according to WC:

"We have it on good authority that Starfield's launch date isn't yet set in stone. Speaking to us on condition of anonymity, trusted sources have told us that Starfield is now playable in full from start to finish.

The game is truly vast, spanning multiple star systems. As such, the polishing effort is similarly gargantuan in nature."

So, yeah, although development is reportedly in its final polishing stage, that rumoured March 23rd release date from CDKeys appears to be jumping the gun a bit.

With Xbox's big summer showcase now formally announced, we're hoping news on that Starfield Developer Direct isn't too far away. We're expecting the event to land sometime in the next few months.

Are you excited to hear more about Starfield in the coming months? Let us know in the comments!
