Starfield at Gamescom might still be possible. Skyrim and Fallout creator Bethesda appears to have changed its plans for a Starfield gameplay demo at the expo. As we wait eagerly for more information about the space RPG and a possible Starfield release,
As we previously reported, Bethesda initially invited Gamescom attendees, via a post on its developer blog, to “come see Redfall and Starfield gameplay and get your hands on Fallout 76 while you’re there”, referencing not only its upcoming space adventure, but its apocalyptic online shooter, and the vampire FPS in development by Dishonored maker, Arkane. This original post was later changed, however, telling players to “come see a replay of the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase gameplay presentations for Redfall and Starfield,” seemingly confirming that any Starfield footage at Gamescom would simply be from the first gameplay trailer released back in June.
Now, though, Bethesda seems to have changed its plans once again, as the same developer blog has been once again altered, this time to remove mention of Starfield – and Redfall – altogether. Fans can apparently still get a photo with Vasco, the RPG’s robotic companion, but there is nothing at all about Starfield gameplay, new or old. On the one hand, this could confirm that there will be absolutely no Starfield, in any form, at the trade show in Germany. Bethesda may be planning another surprise reveal apart from the original gameplay trailer. Starfield fans aren’t sure.
“Hopes…rising? Falling? I’m so conflicted,” writes a user on the Starfield sub-Reddit. “Two options,” writes another. “Someone f***** up and put it there even though they’re not showing it (most realistic version), or they’ve removed it to surprise us when it actually shows up.”
“Normally I’d say this means no Starfield,” says a third fan, “but I’m reading this as a sign that maybe they’ll be showing off some new stuff.” We can only hope, Starfield sub-Reddit. We can only dream.
