Bethesda and Xbox executives have emphasized again that Starfield is an Xbox exclusive and will not be coming to any PlayStation console in the future.
Bethesda Senior Vice President of Global Marketing Pete Hines and Xbox Game Marketing General Manager Aaron Greenberg took to Twitter to quell speculation after some of the things Hines said during a Bethesda Gamescom broadcast were interpreted by some as a suggestion that Starfield might come to PS5 in the future.
Hines stated in the broadcast that Microsoft’s acquisition of Bethesda did not mean that there would never be another Bethesda game on a PlayStation system in the future.
“It’s not a ‘sorry, you’ll never play anything from Bethesda again‘”He explained. “Certainly, there will be things that you will not be able to play on PlayStation“.
He then went on to talk about Starfield, saying “was advertised as something that is exclusive to Xbox“, And then went on to say:”I don’t know if I would go so far as to say that you ever finished playing things on PlayStation. But again I don’t know the answer to that right now “.
This was interpreted by some as a suggestion that Starfield potentially wouldn’t remain Xbox exclusive forever, but Xbox’s Hines and Greenberg later rejected it on Twitter.
After a Twitter user claimed that Hines’ comments could mean that “the door may still be open for the possibility of games like Starfield coming to PS5 in the future,” Greenberg made it clear that Starfield was Xbox only.

“Starfield will be a release exclusively on Xbox Series X / S and PC on November 11, 2022,” he reiterated. “Game Pass members can also play it from day one on Xbox and PC. I know we’ve said all of this before and none of it has changed or will change. “
