As the anticipation for Bethesda Game Studios' upcoming space epic, reaches astronomical heights, PlayStation owners worldwide are eager to know whether Starfield will find its way to the PS5.
With the PlayStation 5 boasting impressive hardware capabilities and a dedicated fanbase hungry for immersive gaming experiences, the potential exclusion of Starfield from the console's library has sparked intense speculation and fervent debates.
In this article, we delve into the possibilities of Starfield coming to PS5. While you are here, make sure you check out the best mods in Starfield.
Will Starfield be on PS5?
No, Starfield will not be coming to the PS5.
Since Microsoft owns Xbox and Bethesda, Starfield will be an exclusive title for Xbox consoles and PC, excluding PlayStation consoles. This exclusivity decision is typically made to promote their own platforms and maximize their market presence.
There's actually a petition to make Starfield a PlayStation exclusive, but we all know how that's going to end. Starfield will stay as an Xbox exclusive as far as consoles go.
Since Starfield is coming to PC, PlayStation fans still have a chance at playing the game as long as they have a computer that meets its system requirements.
Will Starfield be a timed exclusive?
From the looks of it, Starfield will just be a straight-up Xbox exclusive.
Some are still hoping that Starfield will make its way to the PS5 since the game was revealed before Microsoft's acquisition of Bethesda. There are even reports of Sony being in talks for making the game a PlayStation 5 exclusive at the time.
Of course, we know now how that all panned out. There's always the possibility of Starfield eventually getting a PS5 version, but that could be a very long wait.
At this point, you might also be considering playing Starfield on Steam Deck. If that's the case, have a look at what its performance might be like on the handheld platform.
