While Starfield released to some pretty glowing responses, there were still some key points of criticism surrounding the sci-fi RPG. This includes a handful of quality-of-life features as well as fixes for some of the game’s most glaring bugs. Developer Bethesda Game Studios has released an official statement, confirming that the studio has heard audience feedback and is working on adding several requested features to Starfield down the road.

Bethesda shared its Starfield development update in a blog post on its website. In the post, the studio confirms that it’s heard player feedback and will shift its focus to adding heavily-requested features after its able to address some of the game’s more severe bugs. Particularly, bugs that impede story and side quest progress. Bethesda shared a list of features that it plans to add to Starfield once the more pressing issues are taken care of.

The modding community will be happy to know that Creations, Bethesda’s built-in mod support tool, will be launching early next year. The studio states that it plans to support Starfield “for years and years to come,” so we can expect additional updates down the road.
