Bethesda’s vice president said he understands players on PlayStation platforms who are angry she won’t be playing Starfield next year, a sci-fi RPG they describe as Skyrim in space. In an interview with the GameSpot portal, Pete Hines admitted that he also plays on the PlayStation 5 console.
“If you’re a big fan of the games we do and the game we do is no longer available on your platform, I understand if you’re unhappy or angry. I understand that these are real feelings and frustrations. ” Said, Hines.
“I don’t know how to allay the fears and concerns of PlayStation fans other than to say - and I own a PlayStation 5. I’ve played games on that console and there are games I will continue to play on it. But if you want to play Starfield? PC and Xbox. I'm sorry and all I can say is apologize, it's clear to people that it's frustrating, but I can't do much about it. " Hines concluded.
Starfield is one of those games that Bethesda started developing long before Microsoft bought them for $ 7.5 billion, and the game was likely in development for PlayStation consoles at one point. For a long time, it was uncertain whether Microsoft would deny it to players on the Sony console or follow the example of its other teams' games (Psychonauts 2, Wasteland 3, Minecraft Dungeons), which they also launched on a competing platform. However, it was confirmed last week - Starfield will be exclusive to the PC and Xbox Series X / S.
