What The Leak Says About Starfield
Bethesda's plan at the moment regarding Starfield is that they might add features in or take some out of the game. The leaker says the recent website glitch that happened with the Starfield website wasn't a glitch.
Starfield is done being developed but they're overhauling the content and adding more to the world-building. It's similar to why Cyberpunk 2077 was delayed.
The target release date for Starfield is sometime in 2021, which is why thrilled fans should be patient. The game won't be for everyone, but the game will surprise many people.
The game will have online social features with a companion mobile Starfield app that you can use while you're playing the main game. Todd Howard wasn't keen on these features, but Zenimax wanted it to be added.
