Starfield falls between Elder Scrolls and Fallout when it comes to its approach to humor and willingness to be silly, but the more the better. According to a report from XboxEra, one of Xbox’s biggest exclusives in the last decade, Starfield, is expected to come to PS5 and PC after the release of the Shattered Space expansion. The expansion currently does not have a release date but is anticipated to launch sometime this year.
XboxEra’s anonymous sources also claim that Microsoft is investing in PS5 dev kits to support game development on that platform. Additionally, it’s rumored that Hi-Fi Rush is targeting a release on other platforms in the first quarter of 2024, with an announcement of this change of strategy expected to happen later this month. While these rumors have been circulating, it’s important to note that they have not been officially confirmed, so they should be taken with a grain of salt until an official announcement is made.
The possibility of Hi-Fi Rush and Sea of Thieves being brought to other consoles has already sparked controversy among Xbox fans who feel they are losing the main reason they bought the console – its exclusivity. The decision to release Starfield on other platforms is expected to cause even more debate, as its Xbox exclusivity was a key part of its marketing push. According to XboxEra, not everyone at Xbox is happy about the decision, and Microsoft’s senior leadership has reportedly debated the pros and cons of releasing more exclusives on other consoles, with the potential to recoup previously untapped revenue allegedly influencing their decision-making process.
