Contrary to what Todd Howard said about Starfield being an Xbox console exclusive, Bethesda’s Pete Hines shares the opposite idea.
Hines shared his opinion about the game’s console exclusivity in a recent live-streamed interview with media outlet GameSpot. He actually said sorry to the fans for its Xbox exclusivity and the futility about their decision.
Here’s what Hines said:
I don’t know how to allay the concerns of PlayStation 5 fans other than to say, well, I’m a PlayStation 5 player as well, and I’ve played games on that console, and there’s games I’m gonna continue to play on it. All I can really say is, I apologize, because I’m certain that that’s frustrating to folks, but there’s not a whole lot I can do about it.

How the Xbox exclusivity can only be speculated that the final decision came from up above like Microsoft, or Bethesda might actually be making a high-risk bet in order to gain big rewards in the end.
Starfield launches on November 11, 2022 on Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
