Tying into a previous report regarding the launch window of Redfall, industry insiders have narrowed down the potential release date to May 2. The leak came from eXtas1s, who had accurately revealed details on Hideo Kojima’s Overdose.
“If there was any doubt, Redfall can now be 100% confirmed with a release date of May 2, 2023,” eXtas1s tweeted after fellow insider Brad Sams posted a pair of cryptic tweets hinting at Arkane’s upcoming game. The tweets from Sams have since been deleted, but they contained emoji that read “Red Fall Second May” before they were removed.
More official details on Redfall will be revealed at Microsoft’s Developer Direct on January 25, a livestream event that will also focus on The Elder Scrolls Online, Forza Motorsport, and Minecraft Legends. As one of Microsoft’s big AAA releases for Xbox and PC in 2023, a confirmed release date is expected–which Xbox Germany says will be revealed alongside a Forza Motorsport launch date–after Microsoft previously delayed the game out of 2022 and pledged that it would launch alongside Starfield in the first half of 2023.
The show will be streamed on Xbox and Bethesda’s respective Twitch and YouTube channels and will present “big features” and “extended gameplay showcases” on these upcoming titles. While Starfield is missing from the list, that spacefaring game will get its own dedicated showcase that will provide a deep dive into Bethesda’s ambitious new IP.
