Is Starfield Going To Be a Cross-Gen Title? [VIDEO]

The next major title from Bethesda after Fallout 76 might be surfacing on the next console generation only, but it might have a PlayStation 4/Xbox One version, too.

Todd Howard, who confirmed Starfield at E3 this year, was interviewed by Eurogamer, talked about what he considers to be next-gen:

„[Next-generation] to us means two things. It does mean hardware, and it does mean software on our side, and it also means gameplay – what does the next generation of epic single-player RPGs feel like to us? What systems we put it out on, what’s the hardware requirements – [that’s] still to be determined. We’re pushing it. We’re thinking very, very far in future so we’re building something that will handle next-generation hardware. That’s what we’re building on right now, that’s where our mind is, but that doesn’t mean it wouldn’t exist on the current systems as well.”

He also talked about the term single-player – will Starfield be similar to Bethesda‘s traditional RPGs like The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim? „I don’t want to say yes or no to that, because I don’t know what that means to you. It’s different, but if you sit down and play it you would recognise it as something we made if that makes sense? It has our DNA in it. It has things that we like. But it has a lot of new systems we’ve been thinking about for a while that fit that kind of game well. We’ll talk about it in the future.”

Starfield was already discussed within Bethesda in 2004, and its development began in 2015. It has no release date and target platforms yet.
