Tom Cruise in Starfield, surely not?

Mission Impossible and Top Gun star Tom Cruise could be in Bethesda's upcoming RPG Starfield, according to the latest rumours from the game's Discord server.

Starfield is easily one of the most anticipated games of the last couple of years. Bethesda's next big thing, which is described as Skyrim in space is reportedly set for a full reveal at this year's E3 show, with a release date in early 2022, though some say it may hit late 2021 release date. 

And as we wait to see the first gameplay of Starfield, some leaks and rumours have lately been doing rounds over on Reddit , claiming that Tom Cruise, yes, the star of Mission Impossible and Top Gun films, is set to appear in the game. 

Now, before we get even deeper into this stuff, we really suggest you take this with a big dose of scepticism since it's not coming from reliable sources. 

The Redditor who made a breakdown of the leaks claims that there are three main sources on the Starfield Discord server - Deverell, JBG, and Mousey. 

"All three of them claim to have seen Starfield screenshots from an early build, and some of those screenshots eventually got leaked to the general public, which is how we got the recent Starfield leaks," Redditor explains.

He even posted some "proof" of their legitimacy and it seems that the trio indeed has some sources. For the sake of keeping this short and simple, we won't be posting that part here but feel free to check it on Reddit.

The first clue that Tom Cruise is set to appear in Starfield is a tweet from Bethesda themselves back in 2018. 

When asked about this in the Discord server, one of the users with alleged insider knowledge replied that he thinks, Tom Cruise is in the game but does not know if he will also voice act. Insiders also added that there is no reason to tweet directly to Tom Cruise if there weren't collaborating on a project.

Whether this is indeed the truth and Tom Cruise is set to appear in the game, it remains to be seen. If Bethesda actually managed to get him on board, it's safe to say that this will be a massive win for the Xbox and Bethesda team at E3, similarly to how Keanu Reeves and Cyberpunk stole the show at E3 2019.

However, until officially confirmed, take this with a grain of salt and nothing more.
