The Creative Director behind God of War’s 2018 entry, Cory Barlog, has shared his intention of taking off time from work when Starfield releases in 2023.

Originally unveiled during E3 2018, Starfield counts as the first new IP from Bethesda Game Studios in 25 years. It’s no wonder, then, that interest in the game peaks whenever new details emerge.

The most recent of such instances occurred earlier this month when the joint Xbox and Bethesda showcase debuted 15 minutes or so of gameplay footage.

As talk about Starfield continues to pick up steam, even industry legends have begun to express their excitement for Bethesda’s new spacefaring adventure.

Even the God of War Director looks forward to Bethesda’s upcoming opus.

After a months-long hiatus from social media, Cory Barlog recently returned to Twitter to ask that fans exercise patience with regard to God of War Ragnarok news.

In response to a Twitter user stirring up drama about public interest in Starfield versus interest in God of War, Barlog said he’s “so f—ing excited” for the new Bethesda game.

The industry veteran is so excited, in fact, that he plans on taking time off when it finally hits store shelves for PC and Xbox next year.

Like God of War Ragnarok, however, Starfield still lacks a firm launch date. The title initially bore a November 2021 due date but a recent delay pushed it to the first half of 2023.

Kratos’ and Atreus’ next adventure, on the other hand, seems as though it remains on track for a 2022 release.

In response to a fan asking why the team won’t announce a delay, Barlog simply noted “because it’s not.”
