Senior vice president or marketing at Bethesda, Pete Hines spoke out in an interview with Gamespot about the subject, confirming that the number of platforms will be reduced for each team to create a smoother development process.
Hines also noted that upcoming shooter title Deathloop will work in a similar manner as it will be exclusive to PlayStation and PC.
He said “When we decided to do a partnership with Sony on Deathloop and that game became exclusive to that platform, that development got more streamlined because we said, ‘PS5 and PC, that’s what we’re focusing on”
He also followed by saying that he understands players who are unhappy and frustrated with exclusives.
“I don’t know how to allay the fears and concerns of PlayStation 5 fans, other than to say, ‘I’m a PlayStation 5 player as well, and I’ve played games on that console, and there’s games I’m going to continue to play on it. But if you want to play Starfield, [it’s] PC and Xbox. Sorry. All I can really say is, I apologise.”
Fans will be to get their hands on Starfield on November 11th 2022 and will be available across PC and Xbox Series X/S.
