Starfield Is Made For Next-Gen Gaming Hardware

Starfield is the newest space epic currently in development by Bethesda Game Studios, and despite hinting that it might be a next-gen title, studio director Todd Howard has stated that the game may be released for cross-gen.

Howard called Starfield as next-gen during the E3 show, and Eurogamer lately asked Howard to get additional clarification on the statement. He uses the term next-gen seems to point to Starfield launching on future console besides Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

That to us means two things. It does mean hardware and it does mean software on our side, and it also means gameplay – what does the next generation of epic single-player RPGs feel like to us? What systems we put it out on – what’s the hardware requirements – is still to be determined. We’re pushing it; we’re thinking very, very far in future so we’re building something that will handle next-generation hardware. That’s what we’re building on right now, that’s where our mind is, but that doesn’t mean it wouldn’t exist on the current systems as well. I would say Elder Scrolls 6 is in pre-production, and Starfield is in production. It’s a game we’ve been making for a while.

Bethesda began working on Starfield after Fallout 4 came out in autumn 2015, but the studio had been discussing about it since 2004.
