After Keanu Reeves, Tom Cruise could be the big star of a video game

Starfield is arguably one of the most anticipated games since it was announced at E3 2018. New license from Bethesda Studio, the game will be an RPG (role-playing game) set in space. According to many rumors, the game could be exclusive to Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC by the end of the year (although other sources suggest a release in 2022) The latest rumor concerns actor Tom Cruise who could be the big star of this highly anticipated game.

Through the sub-Reddit “Gaming Leaks & Rumors”, three insiders (who haven’t really proven themselves yet) announce that Tom Cruise will be the big star of Bethesda’s next game: Starfield. The insiders confirm that the information comes from reliable sources, but they back up their words with a tweet from Bethesda (from 2018) in which the American publisher asks the actor directly if he would like to participate in a future game. Just that.

Hey @ TomCruise, we are huge fans. Loved your take on Oblivion and now Fallout. Would you like to have a head start on our next thing? #Call me.

Hey @TomCruise, we’re big fans. We loved your performance in Oblivion and Fallout [Mission Impossible]. Would you like to have a head start on our next project? # Give us a call.

So of course this tweet is particularly engaging as it comes from Starfield a few weeks after the announcement. In addition, the universe of oblivion (which takes place in space) is very similar to Bethesda’s upcoming game.

In the past few weeks, Tom Cruise has made headlines as he will be the first actor to board the ISS for a film. The room seems decidedly to stick to the American actor’s skin.

It wouldn’t be the first time an actor has become a video game flagship. Last year, CD Projekt had assigned the services of Keanu Reeves, who was the star of the CyberPunk 2077 game. Unfortunately, given the much controversy that accompanied and tarnished the title’s release last December, it wasn’t a good operation.
