The past week has been a whirlwind for Xbox as the future of the company is uncertain and surrounded by rumors. There are several reports suggesting that major first-party Xbox titles are headed for multiplatform releases.
Among these releases is Starfield, an Xbox exclusive. A Starfield PS5 Leaker suggested that the game is now scheduled for release on PS5. Read on to learn all the details about it.
Starfield PS5 Leaker Suggest PS5 Release
What started as rumors that Hi-Fi Rush would be released on PlayStation and Switch has shifted into reports suggesting a major shift in strategy for Xbox exclusives. It seemed that Microsoft would drop almost all exclusives to make the majority of its games multiplatform.
Starfield was said to be one of these games that was reportedly set to release on PS5. The reputable insider and leaker NateTheHate backed the claims that Starfield is to PlayStation.
The news first came from XboxEra, where they reported that the sci-fi RPG was coming to PS5. Backed by the likes of NateTheHate, the news got more credibility.
He took to Twitter and said that:
This report is accurate — Starfield will land on PlayStation.
I’ve heard similar but opted to wait on reporting this information until the PS5 release timeline was finalized.
As the report states, the PS5 release will come after the arrival of the expansion DLC on Xbox/PC.
Starfield Not Coming To PS5: Starfield PS5 Leaker Got It Wrong
Now, 5 days into his last tweet about Starfield coming to PS5, Nate has changed his stance. Things have seemingly changed as he took to Twitter again, saying that he had checked the info about the leaks and suggested that his earlier claims were not correct.
Nate twitted that:
Over the course of the week, I’ve rechecked the info mentioned below & the information suggesting Starfield was PS5-bound is false.
I will not delete the tweet. I’ll own the mistake.
A previous report from January discussing MS bringing games multiplat remains accurate.
However, he still stands firm on his previous leaked news that other Microsoft first-party games will be getting multiplatform releases in the near future. Nate revealed earlier that Indiana Jones and the Great Circle are scheduled for a PlayStation 5 release.
In addition, several reports also suggest that Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 and Gears of War will also be heading over to PlayStation 5. Moreover, Hi-Fi Rush and Sea of Thieves are also speculated to be coming to PS5 and Switch.
Final Thoughts On Starfield PS5 Leaker
While it is too early to tell which games will end up being released on PlayStation 5, one thing is for certain: Something is happening at Xbox. It is clear that Microsoft is working on a strategic change for its exclusives.
Since Microsoft went all in on the subscription-based Game Pass service, it appears that now it is shifting its focus to software rather than hardware. The thing will be made clear next week when Phil Spencer will address the fans.
In a recent message, Spencer vaguely referred to all this drama and said that they are listening to the fans and his talk scheduled for next week will unravel what’s in store for Xbox games. He said that:
We’re listening and we hear you. We’ve been planning a business update event for next week, where we look forward to sharing more details with you about our vision for the future of Xbox. Stay tuned.
That is all there is to know about the Starfield PS5 Leaker, and we will have to wait for Spencer to clarify things further. Since you’re at it, make sure to check out our comprehensive guide, Palworld Every Legendary Weapon: Check Out The 6 Legendary Weapons Along With Armor.
