Is Starfield Coming to PS5? What You Need to Know

Is there any chance of a PlayStation 5 release for this brand-new space adventure?

By GamesRecon

Gamers everywhere have been holding their breath for Bethesda’s next magnum opus, Starfield. This hotly anticipated sci-fi adventure is on the horizon, all set to make a grand entrance on Xbox Series X, Series S, and Windows PC. But hang on a tick, what about the PS5 enthusiasts among us? Will Starfield grace Sony’s next-gen console or not?

Is Starfield Coming to PS5 or What?

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the answer is sadly no. Unlike the ubiquitous Skyrim that you can probably play on your toaster by now, Starfield is taking a more exclusive route. At launch, it’s only coming to Xbox Series X/S and Windows PCs. Yep, you heard that right—no PS5 in sight.

Now, you might think, “But Bethesda games are usually available everywhere!” And you’d be spot-on. But this time, things are different. Remember, Microsoft now owns Bethesda, and we all know there’s a bit of a tiff between Xbox and PlayStation. So, don’t hold your breath for a PS5 release any time soon.

What Does this Mean for the Future?

It’s a tricky one to call. This could set the stage for future Bethesda games to snub PlayStation altogether. We might be looking at a future where Bethesda titles are solely reserved for Xbox and PC, with maybe the odd Nintendo Switch release sprinkled in.

It’s undoubtedly a downer for those who’ve got a shiny PS5, especially if you had your heart set on playing Starfield. But, let’s look on the bright side—PC gaming is still an option. And who knows what twists and turns the gaming world will take? For now, let’s gear up for an exciting journey through the cosmos, even if it’s just on Xbox and PC.
