Starfield Physical Editions Will Not Include Disc, Bethesda Confirms
A recent tweet from a Bethesda Twitter account has revealed that the physical editions of the highly anticipated game Starfield will not include a disc. However, this tweet has since been deleted, but it can still be viewed via Wayback Machine. The tweet stated that “all physical editions include a code for the chosen platform” and that there would be “no physical discs”.
This revelation has sparked a debate among fans regarding the importance of having a physical copy of the game. While Bethesda has not officially commented on the now-removed tweet, fans have found a contradictory tweet from Bethesda’s official Twitter account for Spain. According to this tweet, the standard version of the game will include a disc, while the Constellation Edition will have a code engraved on a collector’s item.
We have reached out to Bethesda for clarification on the situation and will provide an update once we receive a response.
In other news, the US antitrust agency, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), has cited Microsoft’s decision to keep Bethesda’s games exclusive as “powerful evidence” against its Activision Blizzard takeover bid. The FTC recently succeeded in obtaining a temporary ban on Microsoft’s $68.7bn buyout bid for Activision Blizzard. As the agency prepares for an upcoming hearing, it has submitted additional documentation regarding the matter.
