Well, we regret to inform you that we could have played star field now on our Xbox Series consoles, because the original launch date of the game, 11/11/22, has just passed. While we’re disappointed we can’t jump into Bethesda’s next epic just yet, we’re glad the team has all the time they need to put things right. However, passing its old launch date made us think of limited-edition Xbox hardware, oddly enough.
After last year Infinite Halo xbox series x console, which is a thing of beauty by the waywe wrote Starfield as the next game to receive some sort of limited edition hardware – potentially the next unique Series X design. Of course, that hadn’t been confirmed by Xbox or Bethesda, it just made sense considering the scope of the project and its planned start date. Now that the date has slipped, we’re not so sure about a Starfield console; Xbox has rarely shipped a new console outside of the holiday season!
There are, however, plenty of other first-party titles to come that may have their own system. Forza Motorsport is the one that immediately comes to mind after last year’s Forza Horizon 5 LE Controller, although again, if FM is set for Spring 2023, it could be missing. Titles like Declared and Hellblade 2 are other potential contenders, especially if they line up as big fall releases for Xbox.
Of course, it’s not just about the console itself! Xbox loves a good limited-edition controller, so some of these upcoming exclusives are bound to see a themed pad or two. Remember when Gears of War 4 and Halo 5 do you have two LE controllers per game? These were the days; we’d love to see more controller designs hit the market for the next big Xbox release!
Either way, while we’re happy with the Halo Infinite console and all controllers Xbox has shipped so far this generation (Design lab enhancements included), we’re looking forward to Microsoft’s next piece of themed Xbox hardware. Will this theme be Starfield? Will it be Forza? Will it be Fable? Take your pick from the poll below!
