Game news Microsoft: Starfield and Redfall, the major absentees from Gamescom?
Only a few days left before the launch of Gamescom, the German video game fair. Exclusives, presentation controllers in hand of the most awaited games… Gamescom will be an opportunity for players to approach the next major releases for the first time. With the exception of Starfield and Redfall, which could ultimately be absent from the event.
Will we finally be able to approach once again on Starfield and red fall at Gamescom on August 24? While Bethesda was to once again present these two long-awaited games, it seems that the publisher has decided to backtrack.
After a remarkable appearance last June during the Xbox Showcase as part of the Summer Game FestStarfield, has been rather discreet since that date. Redfall has just been entitled to a long presentation of about twenty minutes. With the imminent departure of Gamescom, fans expect to hear additional news during the event, something announced by Bethesda in a recent publication:
Come see Starfield and Redfall gameplay and play Fallout 76 while you’re there. Of course, we also have some surprises and goodies for you.
Except that since the post has been slightly edited, now no longer containing any mention of the publisher’s two most anticipated titles.
Obsidian headlining instead
Far from being trivial, this small modification carried out on the sly does not bode well for the presence of the two major exclusives from Microsoft. Instead, Obsidian is set to headline with two games: Pensively, the surprise narrative adventure game unveiled last June, and Groundedthe multiplayer sandbox whose the release of version 1.0 is fast approaching.
If Starfield and Redfall are indeed absent from Gamescom, it will be necessary to wait until a still undetermined date for Bethesda and Microsoft to decide to reveal more. Casually, their respective releases are approaching slowly, but surely, while the two apps are supposed to be released during the first quarter of 2023. We will therefore probably have to be patient and hope for new information by the end of the year.
