In one of multiple Twitter/X posts leading up to Starfield’s Early Access launch and the lifting of the review embargo, Bethesda have posted a thank you to their fans and supporters along with a picture of a Starfield poster signed by the game’s development team.
We’ve transcribed the thank you below. You can view the original tweet at the bottom of this post.
To all of you who have supported us over the many years and games, a heartfelt THANK YOU for all of your passion and energy for Starfield. We would not have gotten to this moment without it.
It seems like forever ago that we first started talking about making a grand space RPG. It never seemed feasible and we had been lucky enough to create games we (and all of you fortunately!) loved in The Elder Scrolls and Fallout series. Yet, we couldn’t shake the idea of exploring the galaxy in ways that only video games could do. And so, we took the leap to create not just our first new IP in over 25 years, but our most ambitious.
All of us here at Bethesda poured ourselves into this game, and through the ups and downs of development, you kept us going. Your messages of encouragement or stories of how our games affected you, kept reminding us how important it is.
Thank you for making video games the best community and entertainment form in the world. Thank you for allowing us to chase our dreams and create them. Creating Starfield has been one of the most challenging and thrilling experiences of our careers – a journey we’ll never forget. And as we come to the end of this chapter, we pass it along to you, where the real journey can now begin – yours. We hope it’s as rewarding as ours. We can’t wait for you to play.
All our best,
Bethesda Game Studios

I love RPGs, MMOs, and weird little indie games. Anything that lets me build and decorate or just has a really good story. I've spent hundreds of hours in Bethesda games and even more time modding them. I also play a lot of World of Warcraft.
