A tweet from the official @BethesdaSupport Twitter account announced that the physical editions of the highly anticipated game Starfield would not include a disc. Although the tweet has since been removed, it has sparked a lively debate among fans regarding the value of having a physical copy of the game. While Bethesda has yet to provide an official statement on the matter, a contradictory tweet from Bethesda’s Spanish Twitter account has further added to the confusion.

The now-deleted tweet from @BethesdaSupport caused a stir among the gaming community. It stated, “All physical editions include a code for the chosen platform” and made it clear that there would be no physical discs included. The removal of the tweet may suggest that it was either premature or contained inaccurate information. However, thanks to the Wayback Machine, the tweet’s contents are still accessible, leaving players speculating about the potential shift towards digital-only distribution.

Adding to the confusion, an older tweet from Bethesda’s official Twitter account in Spain contradicts the disc-less claim. According to this tweet, the standard version of Starfield would indeed include a disc, while the special Constellation Edition would feature a code engraved on a collector’s item. This conflicting information has fueled further speculation among fans and heightened the need for Bethesda to clarify the situation.
