Many fans have speculated as to which services the space-faring adventure will grace with its presence. It was announced through a tweet in March of 2023 that cloud gaming service Boosteroid signed a 10-year deal with Microsoft. The deal apparently includes games from developers under the Microsoft banner such as Activision/Blizzard, and most notably, Bethesda. However, no other news has come out as to if/when Starfield is coming to Boosteroid, or other services like GeForce Now.

Don’t forget that in order to play Starfield (or any other games) on cloud gaming services you’ll need to have a good and stable internet connection.
