With Xbox and PCs getting the best of Starfield, a declassified document hurt Sony fans even more. After Microsoft Corporation’s conquest of buying companies, the case went to trial for Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard. During the trial, many industry secrets came to light. One of these secrets was protecting PlayStation fans but since the secrets were out, fans couldn’t help but lament over the loss of a great game.

As per the declassified documents, before Microsoft bought Zenimax Media (the parent company of Bethesda Studios), Starfield was nearly a PlayStation-exclusive game! It was later that Microsoft swooped in and bought Zenimax Media alongside several other studios to hurt the PlayStation fanbase and make more games Xbox exclusives!

Although 3000 signatures are not enough to change Bethesda’s mind, fans are in awe of the attachment that people have to these video games often referred to as an escape from reality.

At the time of writing, the petition stands at 3535 signatures to reach 5000. Benjamin Dickey, the person who started this petition, wrote four major reasons why Starfield should be a PS5 exclusive and not an Xbox exclusive. In other reports, the file size of the AAA game has been revealed to be 125 GB. And to add the cherry on top, it has been heavily rumored that the Call of Duty franchise may also become an Xbox exclusive shortly.

Starfield is set for a release date of 6th September 2023 and will be available to play on Xbox Series S/X and Microsoft Windows.
