“Bethesda puts the finishing touches on Starfield”
Waited for the start of 2023 on PC and Xbox Series X/Sthe RPG Starfield had raised some concerns after its postponement, but its development enters well and truly in its home straight.
We are putting the finishing touches on Starfield, which is an incredible opportunity for us. – Todd Howard (Executive Producer on Starfield)
It was during a press conference a few days before the Bethesda conference at the Summer Game Fest that the executive producer Todd Howard delivered these reassuring words, before adding:
The studio is excited to be able to do something that really takes advantage of Xbox – on the machines themselves, with the Series S and X, knowing that anyone who’s going to play the game can do it on PC, or xCloud, or whatever screen they’re on.
Our ability to transport people, to place them in new worlds where they can have experiences that feel real for who they are, and the emotions that you have. We’ve seen it with our other franchises like Elder Scrolls, with Skyrim, and the Fallout series. We are currently working closely with Xbox to make Starfield the best experience possible. Not just the hardware, but also how people access it, and being able to bring a game like this to more people than any of our games – it’s really a incredible opportunity. – Todd Howard (Executive Producer on Starfield)
As for Phil Spencer, the CEO of Microsoft Gaming, it aims to make Starfield Bethesda’s most played gamedespite the success of monsters such as Skyrim Where fallout :
Starfield is a unique opportunity for me. Todd Howard has been a friend for a very long time, and the fact that Bethesda Game Studios is working on new IP, which has been a long time coming…. It will be a milestone for us. Let’s get more players for this game than any other game. – Phil Spencer (CEO of Microsoft Gaming)
So we’ll meet you on Sunday, June 12 from 7 p.m. (French time) for the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase conference of the Summer Game Fest!
About the Summer Game Fest
What is Summer Game Fest?
No E3 this year, but we can still count on another world-class event: the Summer Game Fest, a big show dedicated to announcements of video games to come this year or the following years. It was in 2020 that journalist and host Geoff Keighley launched this now unmissable festival for the first time. Last year, the show featured stunning images from Elden Ring; so inevitably, the third iteration raises high expectations.
When does Summer Game Fest 2022 start?
The Summer Game Fest is this Thursday, June 9 at 8 p.m. The show will once again be followed by a Day of the Devs session devoted to the independent scene.
How to follow the Summer Game Fest 2022?
On JV, we will react live to announcements from the LeStream channel alongside Maxildan and Aymeric Lallée in particular. The show will also be directly visible as a teaser on JV’s homepage.
