According to Gamesbeat journalist Jeff Grubb, Starfield – the E3 announced back in 2019 will not be coming to the PlayStation console “period”. In a simple tweet, Grub said: “Starfield is exclusive to Xbox and PC. Time. I’m confirming this.”
At the moment, there is no confirmation – so for now, it can only be classified as a rumor – but we have reached out for comment and will update when we hear back from Microsoft.
ICYMI, there is some confusion over whether Starfield could launch this year. Last week, Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier asked “Is Starfield likely to be released in 2021?” Answered the question.
With a single-word response: “No”. While Schreier gave no explanation for his lack of confidence in the 2021 release, the question referred to previous comments about the disruption given to the game’s focus on the large-scale development of the Kovid-19 pandemic.
Interestingly, Grub himself felt that Bethesda’s goal was to release Starfield by the end of 2021, supported by a similar report earlier this year, but has now reached an agreement with Schreier.

Either way, it’s worth waiting for Bethesda’s official term, which means everyone’s focus on the Xbox Showcase at E3 2021.
This year E3 2021 will be a full-fledged virtual “experience” with an interactive online portal and application, virtual booths, social lounges and forums, leaderboards, and custom profiles for attendees.
Unlike traditional event live streams, E3 2021 allows you to meet with other attendees and jump through the digital hub between different aspects of the show. Using the online portal, you can move from Exhibitor booths, hosted events, video conferences, custom profile creation, forums, and more.
