Bethesda's Starfield action-RPG artwork showing off the main characters

[Update #2]: Bethesda's space exploration game Starfield has now arrived alongside a massive amount of praise.

[Update]: Arkane's vampire infused co-op shooter Redfall has arrived alongside a cornucopia of complaints.

In an announcement that has become a remarkably common sight these past few months, Bethesda has just revealed that they are delaying two of their games. In other words, Bethesda's action-RPG Starfield and Arkane's open world first-person shooter Redfall have now been pushed back to the first half of 2023.

“The teams at Arkane Austin (Redfall) and Bethesda Game Studios (Starfield) have incredible ambitions for their games, and we want to ensure that you receive the best, most polished versions of them,” reads the brief developer update. “We can't wait to share our first deep dive into the gameplay for both Redfall and Starfield soon.”

Considering how Bethesda games tend to release with an astonishing array of bugs and glitches, it's probably for the best to offer the developers a bit more time to get everything polished up and ready to go. It's also worth mentioning that we've already been waiting for Starfield since 2018, so an extra year really shouldn't be all that hard to stomach. As for Redfall, well, it's an ambitious open world game so it'll definitely benefit from a bit of extra time in the oven!

Once we get an actual release date for either game, I'll make sure to let you know. Until then, I'll leave you with Redfall's announcement trailer. Enjoy!
