Will Starfield release on PlayStation?
The short answer is no, Starfield won’t release on PS4 or PS5. Since Starfield is set to be an Xbox exclusive, it will only be available to Xbox Series X/S users and PC players.
In the past, Bethesda games such as Fallout and The Elder Scrolls have launched on PlayStation systems. However, Microsoft’s acquired ZeniMax Media back in 2021, who’s studios include Bethesda. As a result, the company became part of Xbox Game Studios.
It’s certainly bad news for PlayStation owners who want to explore the many worlds of Starfield. In June, disappointed players even set up a petition to bring Starfield to PS5.
Depending on how successful Starfield ends up being, we’ll have to see if a competitor makes its way to PlayStation in the future.
Starfield is scheduled to launch on September 6 on Xbox Series X/S and PC via Steam. If you want to launch into orbit sooner, those that pre-order the game will get up to five days of early access.
