Starfield Will Launch in June and Hellblade 2 Slated for Later half of 2023
Update: the new IP rumor has been debunked by Grubb
Starfield was missing from the recent Xbox showcase amid news that a bigger separate event is planned for the title. While reports suggested that the game could appear in E3 2023, it appears Microsoft won’t be appearing at the event. But for the fans desperate to know about Starfield’s release we finally have something. We also found out that at this point Starfield is playable from start to finish. And with Redfall releasing in May, June is the perfect time for Starfield.
Grubb has further revealed Ninja Theory’s Hellblade 2 will also be released in 2023 but in the later half. Moreover, Undead Labs, State of Decay developers, are also reportedly working on a new IP that will be announced next year. It seems like Microsoft has plans to make up for the lack of games last year.
However, despite the insider’s great reputation it is advisable to consider this news a rumor for now. We know according to reports that Microsoft has plans to showcase Starfield in the future and if the June release is indeed correct that will be verified. The same goes for the other two IPs.
