Is Starfield coming to PS5?

Unfortunately, we are about to disappoint all fans of Bethesda games who prefer to play on Sony consoles. Starfield will not be released on any Sony console. So, those who own a PS4 or PS5 will not be able to play the game. At least not at launch.

However, this is not a reason to be disappointed, as it may be released on PlayStation consoles in the future. One of the modern trends in the gaming industry is “temporary” exclusives. These are the games that were exclusive for some platforms for a couple of years and then received versions for other devices. Perhaps Starfield will be one of those games. That said, given Bethesda is owned outright by Microsoft, it's unlikely.
