'Starfield Has Fewer Bugs Than Any Bethesda Game as It is,' Claims Xbox Studios Head

There are many indications that Starfield will make a nice addition to Bethesda's portfolio. The upcoming space RPG is expected to be the least bugged production in the studio's history.

Over the years Bethesda has managed to release several interesting games. Unfortunately, many of them were plagued by a host of glitches on the day of their release. So it's not surprising that gamers eagerly awaiting the debut of Starfield, are worried about the technical condition of the space RPG. Some reassurance has come from the head of Xbox Game Studios, Matt Booty.

The company's helmsman, along with Phil Spencer, was recently a guest on the Giant Bomb podcast. During the conversation, the topic of game delays and possible technical issues was raised. Booty was tempted to make a rather bold statement. According to him Starfield is the least bugged game in Bethesda's history.

"Our team of testers for Starfield is huge. While working together with Todd, I saw the counter of detected bugs and looking at the numbers alone, I can say that if we had released Starfield today, it would be the least bugged launch in Bethesda's history," declared the developer.

Phil Spencer added at this point that originally Starfield was supposed to debut before November 11, 2022. However, Microsoft decided to give the developers more time to get rid of as many bugs as possible.

"The whole team has definitely matured. They have worked on Fallout and The Elder Scrolls. To be honest, at the time of Bethesda's acquisition, the game had a much earlier release date. Earlier even than the first one we officially set," the Xbox boss revealed.

Will Starfield actually turn out to be such a polished game? We will find out on September 6, this year. Bethesda's RPG is headed for PC, Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X. The game will also be available on Game Pass, both on PC and Xbox consoles.
