Don’t expect a Starfield PS5 port anytime soon, despite the rumors

The Starfield PS5 port has been heavily rumored since reports surrounding Xbox’s first-party future first materialized, but it's not looking likely for 2024.

If you’ve been waiting for the rumored Starfield PS5 port to finally materialize, don’t hold your breath. According to a fresh report from Windows Central’s Jez Corden, Bethesda’s Xbox space epic won’t be grav jumping over to PlayStation “anytime soon.”

“Since some people are asking me about the latest round of Starfield rumors,” Corden begins, “I’ll say definitively: I have great sourcing that nobody is working on Starfield for PlayStation right now.” The Xbox exclusive has been heavily touted as a candidate for a PS5 port since the news first broke that Microsoft was looking to shop some of its first-party titles around to rival consoles.

Since then, the rumor mill has been rife with reports that the RPG game would cross the far reaches of console space to join the list of new PS5 games coming to Sony’s hardware later this year. In early February it was reported that Starfield PS5 would arrive sometime after the upcoming Shattered Space DLC. Even after the Xbox business update confirmed it wasn’t one of the four games getting shipped out, rumors of a late 2024 release continued to circulate online.

During the business update podcast, Xbox CEO Phil Spencer didn’t entirely squash the possibility of the space game coming to PS5. “I don’t think we should as an industry ever rule out a game going to any other platform,” he said at the time. “We’re focused on these four games and learning from the experience. I don’t want to create a false expectation on those other platforms that this is somehow the first four to get over the dam and then the dam’s going to open and everything else is coming.”

In the same vein, Corden’s tweet doesn’t stipulate that Starfield won’t come to PS5 at all – he even says “nobody knows what the longer-term future holds.” However, what’s clear is that, according to Corden’s sources at least, Starfield won’t arrive on PlayStation for the foreseeable future.
