Starfield 2020 Release Debunked As Bethesda’s Pete Hines Says the USK Rating is Merely a Glitch


Earlier this week, Bethesda’s highly-anticipated title seemingly received a rating from the USK, which had many hoping for a Starfield 2020 release.

Initially picked up by YouTube channel Skullzi TV following a discovery from the Starfield community, the official Starfield website briefly contained a logo for an official USK rating. In general, titles don’t get rated by the USK before being completed, and as such, this had many fans hoping for a release later this year.

Interesting to note is that the USK also rates upcoming trailers for events, suggesting that a new trailer is inbound for the sci-fi action-RPG.

Unfortunately, these rumors now seem to have been debunked as Bethesda’s Pete Hines has taken to Twitter to state that the Starfield USK rating was merely a glitch on the website.

So yeah, don’t get your hopes up for a Starfield 2020 release.
