Bethesda''s tweet revealing the delays does not reveal any substantial detail on why Starfield and Redfall have been postponed, beyond the usual excuse of taking extra time to add polish to the games.

"We''ve decided to postpone the launch of Redfall and Starfield until the first half of 2023," said the team at Arkane Austin (Redfall) and Bethesda Game Studios (Starfield." It''s a good idea to ensure that all teams receive the best, most polished versions of them.
The posting provided some good news, as we may anticipate our first deep dives into both titles this summer.
Starfield''s Steam page went live back in December, but it was not due to launch until November 11 this year, the same day Skyrim returned in 2011. We at the time cautioned that this was owing to the fact that we''re so used to seeing from big, highly anticipated games. However, it isn''t too surprising to say how little Bethesda has shown of Starfield so far.
The Steam page for Starfield, which still shows 11.11.22 as the planned release date, suggests that it will be the first original RPG for Bethesda Studios in 25 years. Let''s hope it stays up to the hype.
Redfall will likely be canceled until 2023 due to the Starfield announcement. This year''s E3 features Arkane Austin''s four-player vampire FPS, especially for those who like Left 4 Dead/Back 4 Blood and the Warhammer: Vermintide games.
