Bethesda's secretive new sci-fi RPG Starfield will remain a mystery for a while longer, company exec Pete Hines says.
It's been a long time since we heard about Starfield. Announced at E3 2018, the game is Bethesda Game Studio's first new IP in decades and is gearing up to be the next big RPG franchise. There's a fair bit we know about Starfield:
- Bethesda describes it as a 'singleplayer space epic'
- Bethesda consulted with Elon Musk and SpaceX while making it
- Starfield is built for next-gen PS5, Xbox Series X consoles
- It's multiple years away from release
- It's set far into the future
- Starfield is one of the 'big and crazy projects' Todd Howard teased in 2017
- Starfield is in full production and is currently playable
So when will get more news? Not for a while, Bethesda says.
"I'm dying to tell you what Starfield is about," Bethesda's senior VP of marketing and global communications said in a recent Twitch.tv stream.
"Our lives would be a lot easier if we were ready to show and talk about what the team is working on. Anybody can do marketing when the game is ready to show.
"If the game's not ready to show, there's not a whole hell of a lot we can do until it's ready. I can't make it up.
"The only thing that I can tell you is when we finally get around to it, when we finally get around to talking about what BGS is up to, I think you'll be impressed. I think you will be excited. I think you will say 'that looked like it was worth the wait.'
"We'll see. It's going to be a while till we get there."
When asked if Hines could give a teaser or a snippet of info, he replied:
"The fans are already mad enough as it is. I'm not going to make it worse by teasing them. I don't want anybody to be unhappy, I just can't do anything about it...I have no information to share."
