Both Forza Motorsport and Minecraft Legends are due to be released in the next few months.
Meanwhile Redfall was meant to be released last summer but was delayed, along with Starfield, to give players “the best, most polished versions of them”.
Microsoft gaming CEO Phil Spencer has since said it was “the right thing to do”. Both games are now due for release in the first half of 2023.
More recently Arkane Studios‘ creative director Ricardo Bare hit back at claims that Redfall will be similar to the Left 4 Dead games, instead saying it has more in common with Far Cry.
Bare went on to describe Redfall as “a big-ass open world. We have a home base where you can talk to NPCs and get side-quests. You can go to the mission table and pick up story-driven missions. Or you can not give a shit about any of that and just head outside; pick a direction, start hauling ass, and run into the living-world stuff that we have going on.”
Bethesda has also confirmed a separate event will come at a later date for details about Starfield.
In other news, Saudi Arabia has increased its stake in Nintendo, becoming one of the gaming giant’s largest shareholders.
