Seems like Starfield is definitely not this year, unlike earlier rumours.
:'(

I'll at least be happy to see it. Really curious to see if it's just Fallout in space like The Outer Worlds or if it's more dynamic with spaceships and the like.

i always thought those early rumors were more of wishful thinking than anything.   it always seems the rumor come around about how huge and massive MS's whatever is going to be and reality never lines up with the hype.

i'd say it's 50/50 on if you'll even get that level of detail.  if the game really didn't even go to production until 2019 right as covid struck then there is a good chance all you'll get is a CGI trailer.

I retract my statement:

Todd Howard says production started after Fallout 4.  (late 2015/early 2016).

And the game was in preproduction well before that, with a trademark in 2013.

Schreier says full production only started after Fallout 76 release in late 2019

Huh fair enough.  I missed the follow-up tweet.

who knows if Schreier is right or not.  but if he is right this game is probably fall of 2022 at earliest and more likely 2023 due to covid impact.

i dunno.  MS has a huuuuuuge precedent of releasing CGI trailers long before the game is even close to being ready.   sometimes before even starting development...   i expect we'll see starfield at their conference.   what i don't expect is that they are ready to show gameplay on starfield,.. or hellblade 2,.. or project mara,.. or fable,.. or everwild,.. or perfect dark.   we'll see gameplay on halo, forza, psychonauts 2, flight sim and more first party GGI announcements on games that are most of a generation away from releasing.

this is one thing i'm happy about with sony.   they were just as bad as MS a few years back but have really shown much more restraint in not showing a game too early.  12-18 is appropriate for massive franchises but most games should target 6-9 months imo.

MS made Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos exclusive to Xbox for two years.
