Due to that, they went into the development of Starfield to build it intentionally in a way that it allows to be played for a long time in a way that feels natural, and they considered what it would look like at various points in the future.

The developers have decided to embrace the fact that players are going to stick with the game for many years and they have decided to make the most out of it.

As a result, they have strived to create a very good base that can be built upon both for the developers themselves and for modders.

Howard also provided insight on the acquisition by Microsoft, mentioning that it was really natural, and a very smooth transition, particularly on the development side.
