Starfield is creating massive hype in the market, and everyone is trying to get a piece. Bethesda’s highly anticipated game is trying to make sure that the players get the best possible experience. With this in focus, the devs have been collaborating with the likes of Microsoft and AMD to optimize Starfield. However, this is also raising multiple concerns within the community.

The partnership between Bethesda and AMD is making people concerned about future upgrading possibilities. Many have alleged that this collab may hamper future upscaling from rivals like Nvidia and Intel. While AMD will ensure FSR2 technology is available for Starfield, the possibility of alternate technology like DLSS and XeSS may be excluded.

Bethesda announced last year that Starfield will be an Xbox-exclusive title. The announcement raised many eyebrows who believed that this will lead to certain restrictions for other console players. Amidst the Sony-Microsoft fiasco over the acquisition of Activision-Blizzard, the concerns aren’t unjustified. However, it seems like Bethesda is solely focused on making Starfield the grand experience that players expect it to be.

Titles that have exclusive collaborations with AMD often lack upscaling options from both Nvidia and Intel. While Nvidia has publicly stated that it doesn’t stop developers from using competitor technology, AMD is yet to deny the possibility of blocking competing features in certain sponsorships.

Amidst such concerns, the community has requested Bethesda and AMD for clarification. But things aren’t made clear by the Starfield devs yet. Delay in response to concerns of blocking rival upscaling possibilities has also blown more wind to speculation fires across the community.

While AMD FSR2’s compatibility across all platforms is a strong argument for such a controversy, excluding competing GPU makers from providing upscaling options to their fans isn’t justifiable to many. Furthermore, DLSS is often hailed as the superior technology, producing higher image quality. Under such circumstances, a detailed clarification of the Bethesda-AMD partnership may benefit everyone.
