Starfield Themed Xbox Retail Box Surfaces Online

An Xbox Series X is being sold with a Starfield cover on its back in China reportedly.

Story Highlights
  • An image has surfaced online, showcasing an Xbox Series X with Starfield on its back cover.
  • The game is otherwise known to release in the first half of 2023.

In the gaming community, a lot has been going on in anticipation of Starfield’s approaching release. Xbox, for example, has planned a special event for the game, and a release date in the first half of 2023 is rumored.

The game’s Steam page was just updated, with the release date changed from “2023” to “Coming Soon.” It is being said that the game will be pushed back from Q1 2023, to the end of the year.

Twitter user “Onion00048” claims to have firsthand knowledge that Bethesda’s Starfield has been postponed until the fourth quarter of 2023. This should imply that the highly anticipated role-playing game will be available between October and December this year.

Reddit user u/LemonMintHooka shared what seems to be a picture of the Xbox packaging for the upcoming Starfield Xbox version.

This supposedly leaked information has got the whole gaming community in confusion as it contradicts all the rumors going around beforehand. 

The existence of the instantly recognizable image of Starfield on the rear of Xbox Series X boxes in China is causing a stir on social media.

Some people think it should be viewed as an “unofficial confirmation” of the release of Starfield in the first half of 2023, while others would rather not go that far and confine themselves to thinking of it as one simple promotional gimmick determined by the value of the new Bethesda IP.

Microsoft is clearly preparing a large promotional campaign for a big Bethesda project. This title is heavily anticipated after a rough year by Xbox, and this huge exclusive is supposed to bump up their game.

In all of the excitement around the game’s impending release, any reports of a possible delay are disappointing. However, this piece of information is a breath of fresh air for gamers who are looking forward to the release. 

The information stated on the packaging is difficult to see. However, just looking at the packaging, you can get a general idea of how Microsoft intends to incorporate Starfield’s popularity into its Xbox lineup. Don’t be surprised if you see a special Starfield controller or other accessories in the coming days.
