Is Starfield Releasing in January 2023?


Bethesda's newest RPG Starfield is one of this year's most anticipated games, but its release date is still a bit vague.

Despite being teased back in 2018, Bethesda's brand new IP is still on the cusp of launching. Having been described by director Todd Howard as "Skyrim in space," the upcoming RPG has been at the forefront of player minds since its first teaser.

During the Microsoft/Bethesda showcase during E3 2021, Starfield was announced as a Microsoft Windows and Xbox Series X|S exclusive and given a release date of Nov. 11, 2022. But, in May 2022, Bethesda announced that it would be delayed until the 2023.

But with 2023 having arrived, and no definitive release date given, there'll be plenty of players wondering if we can expect to see Starfield in January 2023.

When Does Starfield Release in 2023?

Both Bethesda and Microsoft have yet to formally announce Starfield's new release date, but have reaffirmed that the game will be launching in the first half of 2023. A new support page for the upcoming game has gone live, confirming this to be the case.

Given this response, its highly unlikely that we'll see Starfield release this January but there's a good chance that players will be given some new information on RPG in the coming months. The first half of 2023 could take us up to June/July, so we might not see Starfield in full for a number of months.
