Starfield’s home screen isn’t minimal because the team didn’t care, Bethesda points out
Bethesda’s Head of Publishing, Pete Hines, has hit back World of Warcraft designer Mark Kern after Kern said Star field‘s home screen suggests it “either shows rushed shipping deadlines by a passionate team that is overworked, or a team that doesn’t care”.
“The Physiognomy of Home Screens. A game’s home screen can reveal a lot about how rushed the team was and how much pride they had in their work,” Kern tweeted.
“from Starfield home screen shows rushed shipping deadlines by a passionate team that is overworked, or a team that doesn’t care.
“Home screen (sic) is often done at the very end of development,” they added in a follow-up tweet. “Teams are too busy making the core game. It’s quite common for the home screen to completely change once the game ships or on patch 0.
“Teams that are proud want to put on a good face and will often do so again right before the game goes live,” Kern concluded.
Or they designed what they wanted and that’s been our menu for years and was one of the first things we decided on. Having an opinion is one thing. Questioning one developer’s “care” because you would have done otherwise is highly unprofessional of another “developer”August 20, 2023
After a commenter alerted them to Kern’s tweets, Hines responded in kind earlier today by saying, “Whether (the development team) designed what they wanted and that’s been our menu for years and was one of the first things we decided about names.
“Having an opinion is one thing. Questioning a developer’s ‘care’ because you would have done otherwise is highly unprofessional coming from another ‘developer’.”
Kern bit back earlier today with a snide remark about it Fallout 76 And redfall.
There’s no point in asking one of the developers Star field for sneaky info on the highly anticipated action RPG – according to Bethesda Game Studio’s studio design director, Bethesda boss Todd Howard is the only person “authorized” to give away “unreleased game information”..
What we do know is that the sci-fi game recently went goldand you can preload Star field now on Xbox Series X|S and PC (although Steam players will have to wait until August 30) if you pre-ordered the game or plan to download it from the Xbox game pass subscription service.
However, you may need to clear some space in advance – Star field will take up a significant 100.19 GB Xbox Series X|S for Standard Edition players and 117.07 GB for those who rock the Premium Edition. PC and Steam users have it even worse, with Bethesda’s spacefaring RPG taking up a whopping 139.84 GB.
