We made some very sad news yesterday when Bethesda Game Studios announced they were postponing Starfield and Redfall to 2023. The disappointment was quite large in the Xbox universe, whose “exclusive games” are often delayed since the release of the consoles …
If PC gamers are a bit disappointed, it’s especially the Xbox community that has come to the fore to denounce game delays, including the long-awaited Starfield. Of course, the noise raised by the community quickly reached the ears Phil Spencer who had to speak on this matter.
These decisions are hard for the teams that make the games and for our fans. While I fully support giving teams time to release these great games when they’re ready, we’re hearing feedback. We are expected to deliver quality and consistency and we will continue to work to better meet those expectations. https://t.co/mIfXGd3rui

Here is the French translation:
“These decisions are difficult for both the teams that make games and our fans. While I fully support giving teams time to release these big games once they’re ready, we’re hearing feedback. Consistent quality is expected and we will continue to work hard to better meet these expectations.”
If we fully understand the words Phil Spencer who supports his teams… Xbox players, for their part, note that the end of 2021 was good with the release of Halo Infinite, Forza Horizon 5! Unfortunately, the first six months of 2022 were pretty bad, and only Shredders is available as a console exclusive… If you add to that the delay of Stalker 2 due to the war in Ukraine, we’re saying that 2022 should be pretty bad. in exclusivity unless Microsoft comes up with a nice surprise? But, we believe in it moderately.
However, keep in mind that a delayed game is better than a game released in a hurry, as was the case with Cyberpunk 2077 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, which quickly fell victim to bad hype.
So we are waiting for Presentation Xbox Bethesda hoping for good surprises and you? Feel free to let us know about GeekNPlay or on social networks facebook and Twitter.
