Starfield could be Bethesda’s next postponement: Deathloop won’t be the only one for Imran Khan
According to Imran Khan, Deathloop will not be the only game postponed by Bethesda and Starfield may also experience delays due to COVID-19.
Speaking of Deathloop’s recent postponement, journalist and host Imran Khan reiterated the fact that, according to him, the COVID-19 pandemic will have very long aftermath. While the video game industry has fared better than many others, the accumulated delays will reverberate for years to come. For example, according to an employee told him, Deathloop won’t be the only game postponed from Bethesda: also Starfield could suffer the same fate.
According to Khan, in fact, a Bethesda employee told him that “players will not see every game they expect this year coming to stores.” And he was talking specifically about Starfield.
It sucks, but it’s the truth. We don’t want to release a broken game, we want to create the best game possiblebut we are moving at three / quarters of the normal speed on good days and even slower on bad days. “
Everything, as we said, is still a consequence of COVID-19, which forced companies to decentralize processes. Something that has sheltered the health of many, but has slowed the pace of development and creation of the games. Furthermore, the handover between Zenimax and Bethesda may not have helped, with new processes and procedures to be integrated into their systems.
For now, however, Deathloop is the only game to have been officially delayed. Little is known about Starfield: maybe during Microsoft’s participation in E3 2021 we will know something more.
