Starfield has apparently removed Russian as a language from Steam – That’s Gaming

Over the past year, several developers and publishers have decided not to make their games officially available for purchase in Russia, with these policy changes prompted by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. It looks like another major upcoming title is about to join that list.

As reported by PCGamesN, Bethesda appears to have removed Russian language support for Starfield, as evidenced by updates made to the game’s Steam backend and found on the SteamDB page. This entry confirms that support for Russian subtitles and audio have been removed from the game (see screenshot below).

Interestingly, previous Bethesda Game Studios RPGs such as The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim and Fallout 4 launched with Russian support and still have it, while the upcoming Bethesda-published title Redfall will also offer Russian support. It remains to be seen if this is something that will change, or if the change is irreversible for Starfield. For now, neither Microsoft nor Bethesda have made any official statements on the matter.

Recently, Sony also removed Horizon Forbidden West: Burning Shores from the Russian PlayStation Store – read more here.

Starfield comes out on Sept. 6 for Xbox Series X/S and PC and gets a special Direct showcase on June 11.
