Starfield Timeline

What is the timeline of events in Starfield?

Starfield’s story is set to take place in the year 2330 – a distant, but still imaginable future where humanity has developed settlements on other planets. In the run up to the game’s launch there aren’t a lot of important setting dates we know about, but check out below for a brief list of what we know so far!

The first new intellectual property developed by Bethesda Game Studios in 25 years, Starfield is a hotly anticipated AAA single player, action role playing game which takes place across the vastness of space. From environments to game mechanics, crafting and space flight, Starfield has a lot of potential to keep gamers busy for years to come. Originally scheduled for release in late 2022, Starfield’s new release date is now set for September 6, 2023!
