New Starfield info to be revealed next month?

It is being rumoured that Microsoft will be holding a Bethesda showcase event next month, although this likely would be for the whole of ZeniMax and not one part of it.

Will we see new Starfield information revealed at the event next month?

Microsoft Holding Event Next Month

Next month will see Microsoft finally acquire ZeniMax once the European Union regulators meet to decide if the deal can go ahead.

Once this happens, Microsoft will very likely reveal a lot of information about what the company is working on.

Since the announcement of the acquisition last year, ZeniMax has been extremely quiet when it comes to announcements, except the odd one here and there such as the new Indiana Jones game.

Jeff Grubb, a journalist for Games Beat, revealed on the Games Beat Decides podcast that a new Bethesda event will be happening next month.

"I don’t know if it will be a full, Direct-style event, but they will make note about it and they will talk about it extensively, explain what it means for everybody and talk about the immediate future of both companies becoming one, so yeah, expect that to happen sometime in mid-March."

Once this happens Microsoft will have secured the company, meaning they have no reason to hesitate when it comes to announcing new games.

This will also be one of the key reveal events before the digital E3 2021 which will take place in June.

New Starfield Info To Be Revealed

Since its original reveal at E3 2018, news about Starfield has been few and far between.


According to ResetEra insider NateDrake has revealed that Starfield is scheduled to be released in 2021, but also notes that the game could still be delayed due to the current global pandemic.

NateDrake noted that "There has been a strong hope & desire to have Starfield launch this year. How major the impacts due to COVID have been on the title is anyone's guess, but 2021 was the intended goal for release as of a few months ago."

If the Bethesda/ZeniMax event is held next month then that would be the perfect time to finally reveal new information.

Otherwise, we will probably have to wait until E3 2021 to hear more about the game.
