Starfield, the next big role-playing game from Bethesda Game Studios, was presumably pegged for the PlayStation 5 at one point. But now the developer’s in the process of being acquired by Microsoft, there are question marks over whether it’ll still release on Sony’s next-gen system at all. The Redmond firm has been umming-and-ahhing over this, most recently suggesting that there may still be hope for PlayStation fans.
PlayStation bigwig Jim Ryan, of course, doesn’t know what’s going on: “That’s a decision that is out of our hands, we’ll wait and see what happens,” he told Russian website TASS. “I look forward to learning about that.”
The executive explained that Sony has taken a different route to the growth of its first-party portfolio: “Our emphasis has been to focus on really steady, slow, but constant organic growth of our studios, selectively bolstered by acquisitions. We respect the steps taken by our competition, they seem logical and sensible. But we’re equally happy and confident, we’ve got a better launch lineup than we’ve ever had at any of our console launches.”
