Starfield is delayed, but what do we actually want from it?


Starfield is the latest casualty of summer release-date rollbacks, meaning Bethesda’s sci-fi epic won’t land until 2023 — scream into the void at will. But more important than the arrival date is a far more complex question: what do we really want to see from Starfield when it does finally take flight?

The game maker openly states that “Starfield is the first new universe in 25 years from Bethesda Game Studios,” That’s an entire Gen-y person — incidentally, many of the people Bethesda wants playing Starfield. The company has spent years iterating on the Elder Scrolls – and more recently, Fallout – but the last swipe it took at space and sci-fi proper was an Atari Jaguar game from 1999.
