Multiple Reviewers Claim Starfield Has Minimal Amount of Bugs

Sources Say Fewest Bugs of Any Bethesda Game!

Bethesda Game Studios is famous for making large open worlds and deep RPGs. However, the studio is also known for bugs due to the incredibly ambitious RPGs, which was also a common concern for Starfield.

However, Matt Booty from Xbox had already assured fans that Starfield would not repeat the mistakes of previous Bethesda Game Studios releases, claiming that it would launch with the least amount of bugs of any RPG from the developer.

With Starfield review copies out in the wild, sources have told Insider Gaming that this is indeed the case, and the game is extremely polished.

Why it matters: Starfield has a lot of expectations due to the anticipation around the RPG and its title as Bethesda Game Studios’ first new IP in 25 years. The game is also extremely important for the future of Xbox and its first-party lineup.

Previously, another reviewer had already hinted at Bethesda Game Studios’ polish for the upcoming release.

A reviewer claimed that he had not run into a single bug during the first fifteen hours of the game. While he had other positive things to say about Starfield, this detail caught the attention of fans hoping for a polished release.

Several days later, the report above states that five reviewers currently under NDA have shared a similar story. According to the reviewers, the number of bugs they have come across can be counted on one hand.

Unlike the first reviewer, this report does not clarify the exact playtime. However, review copies have been out for nearly ten days now, meaning that these sources have spent a decent amount of time with the RPG.


Elaborating further, the reviewers claimed to have run into one or two bugs at most, hinting at an incredibly polished release from the studio like Matt Booty had promised.

Reviews for the game are set to go live on August 31, so audiences will not have to wait too long to learn more about the state of bugs in the game. Following the reviews, Starfield will also be playable for early-access users the very next day, with the full release scheduled for September 6.
