Today Bethesda announced Starfield will release on November 11, 2022 exclusively for PC and Xbox Series X/S consoles. It won't be coming to Xbox One. The team is building the game with its new and enhanced Creation Engine 2, which was scaled specifically to harness the raw power of new hardware, including the Series X's Zen 2 CPU, Navi GPU, and PCIe 4.0 SSD.

"In this next generation role-playing game set amongst the stars, create any character you want and explore with unparalleled freedom. Harnessing the power of next-gen technology and built on the all-new Creation Engine 2, Starfield takes you on a journey through space as you strive to answer humanity's greatest mystery," Bethesda said.

Todd Howard also confirms that Starfield wouldn't be possible without next-gen hardware like the Xbox Series X.

"Set hundreds of years in the future, an epic about hope, answering the greatest mystery. It wasn't until now we have the hardware to make our dream a reality," Howard said at the Xbox event.

Starfield launches November 11, 2021 on PC and Xbox Series X/S. It won't be coming to PlayStation consoles.
