Today Bethesda and Microsoft finally announced the release date of the upcoming sci-fi RPG Starfield. 

The game will release on September 6, 2023, for Xbox Series X|S and PC. Of course, it'll also be on Xbox Game Pass. 

The announcement was accompanied by the announcement that a "Starfield Direct" broadcast will come on June 11, 2023, to provide a deep dive into the game.

Director Todd Howard promises "so much" that still has to be shown, mentioning that Starfield has many of the hallmarks that we can expect from a Bethesda RPG, but it's also a "very unique experience. "

The veteran developer also thanked the fans for their support and enthusiasm about the game, stating that the developers read all the comments they can find. They know we have waited a long time to play something new from the studio, and they feel the same way. They miss releasing a new game and can't wait for us all to play Starfield. 

You can watch the video with the announcement below. 

Starfield was originally teased all the way back in 2018. It was supposed to release in November 2022, but it was then delayed to the first half of 2023. Now, we finally know when it's coming. 

If you're unfamiliar with the game, here's an introduction directly from Bethesda: 

"Starfield is the first new universe in 25 years from Bethesda Game Studios, the award-winning creators of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Fallout 4. In this next generation role-playing game set amongst the stars, create any character you want and explore with unparalleled freedom as you embark on an epic journey to answer humanity’s greatest mystery.

The year is 2330. Humanity has ventured beyond our solar system, settling new planets, and living as a spacefaring people. From humble beginnings as a space miner, you will join Constellation – the last group of space explorers seeking rare artifacts throughout the galaxy – and navigate the vast expanse of the Settled Systems in Bethesda Game Studios’ biggest and most ambitious game."
