2023 is definitely shaping up to be quite the year for gaming enthusiasts. Spider-Man 2, Hogwarts Legacy, and even the upcoming Resident Evil 4 Remake—these are not games that you would want to turn a blind eye to, considering you’re a fan of the craft here.
Another game that has been initially expected to make landfall sometime in 2023 is Redfall, but a new rumor suggests that Arkane’s imminent first-person vampire-based shooter might arrive early into the next year. Of course, nothing about this has been confirmed yet, so it might do you well to keep a pinch of salt by your side.
- Redfall—Arkane Austin’s open-world first-person shooter—has been rumored to release in March 2023.
- The news comes from a notable industry insider who’s been successful to leak information in the past with positive results.
Okami Games has taken to Twitter to share that Redfall will be headed to its release by the “end of March ,” according to their anonymous sources. As for a brief background of the well-followed Twitter user, Okami is affiliated with multiple noteworthy sites and has proved to be credible in the past with their leaks and rumors.
Now, however, they have reason to believe that March is going to be the month for Redfall’s landing day. In addition, there’s word on the early access for the first-person shooter, scheduled to be sorted out one week prior to the release.
However, to play the game early, you will need to either pre-order Redfall or purchase the Deluxe Edition which would be revealed sooner or later. Of course, the latter would arrive with several extra goodies, and in this case, playability for the game a week ahead of time. Perfect for those who just cannot wait for Redfall anymore.

Earlier this year in May, Bethesda — the game’s publisher — publicly announced that both Redfall and Starfield have been delayed to the “first half of 2023.” The company gave the reason, “The teams at Arkane Austin (Redfall) and Bethesda Game Studios (Starfield) have incredible ambitions for their games, and we want to ensure that you receive the best, most polished versions of them.”
It’s been circulated around on the internet that Redfall might make an appearance at the annual The Game Awards event that is scheduled to take place on December 8, 2022. The developers of the game might have more to share with regard to the title’s development and subsequent release.
We have to say that early 2023 looks absolutely loaded with jaw-dropping titles. To name a few, the remake of the iconic titles Resident Evil 4 and Dead Space, Forspoken, Hogwarts Legacy, Like a Dragon: Ishin!, and a title that has suffered from 5 delays at this point now: Skull and Bones all seem to be putting on quite the show for the next year.
As for Redfall, Arkane Austin’s inevitable vampire-oriented first-person shooter was primarily announced as an Xbox exclusive back in 2021 and has been delayed one time now—truly a commonplace scenario in the bustling world of gaming. Fans can expect the IP to make landfall on the Xbox Series X and the Xbox Series S consoles.
The game has been confirmed to release for the next generation of Xbox consoles, so Xbox One owners will, unfortunately, have to sit this one out unless they plan to upgrade. Redfall’s relatively recent gameplay reveal trailer has cast a lens on many of the title’s combat mechanics and other features.
In addition, the fact that the game is designed to be open-world set on a desolate island overrun by vampires makes things tenfold exciting. The protagonists are human, similar to Left 4 Dead, and the whole ideology is to just bite back and reclaim Redfall—the name of the in-game world.
Do let us know whether you’re as excited as we are for Redfall in the comments section down below. In the meantime, we’re off to drool at the reveal trailer of the game for the 9th time.
