Xbox's Phil Spencer Seems Happy To Show Off About Playing Starfield Early

It feels like we've been waiting forever for Starfield to hit Xbox Game Pass, and even though the wait is almost over, it isn't stopping us from getting incredibly jealous of today's news that some of the folks working on the game are already well into their Starfield playthroughs.

As spotted by Idle Sloth on Twitter, Xbox's Phil Spencer, Bethesda's Pete Hines and another mystery profile in the image below have all been playing some Starfield as of late - roughly two months before launch.

Now, this doesn't mean that they've been playing together, or at the same time or anything like that - the above image simply shows that these three profiles connected to Idle Sloth's account have been playing the game in some fashion.

We're actually quite surprised that playtime like this isn't hidden to the public, or maybe played on alternate accounts or something. But, Phil & co. don't seem too bothered about us all knowing about their early Starfield playtime!

Even if this revelation feels like a cruel tease at this stage, at least we don't have long to wait to go hands-on for ourselves. Starfield hits Xbox Series X|S and PC on September 6th, or even earlier if you upgrade to the higher tier versions of the game.

Are you still hyped for Starfield? Let us know if you'll be playing it ASAP on Xbox Game Pass!
