Will Starfield be on PS5?

Unfortunately, Starfield will not be seeing a release on either PS5 or PS4. It’s also very unlikely we’ll see it ever appear on the platform.

The reason for this is due to Microsoft’s acquisition of ZeniMax Media in 2021, which saw the company become a subsidiary of Xbox Game Studios.

As a result of this, all future releases of ZeniMax, whose studios include Bethesda Softworks, are tied to the Xbox brand and won’t be released on PlayStation consoles. Whether we’ll see a competitor release a similar type of game for the PS5, only time will tell.

Recently, a leak surfaced online from a 2020 email thread between Microsoft executives that detailed their original plans for Starfield where the game was listed to be coming to PS5, as well as Xbox Series S/X, and PC. However, this was prior to the ZeniMax acquisition, so we can assume that all original plans for a PS5 were scrapped when the deal was made.
