If true, all of this is exciting news for those looking forward to enjoying Starfield. Bethesda is notorious for having several bugs and glitches in its sprawling open-world RPG games. This is not only at launch but for years and years afterward, ranging from minor yet hilarious to game-breaking. So it’s great that Starfield doesn’t fall victim to that tendency, and fans can look forward to enjoying a mostly smooth experience when the game releases.
