Starfield leaker arrested after selling copies online

A person who got popularity for leaking 45 minutes of Starfield has been arrested for dealing in stolen goods, which supposedly included copies of the game he tried to sell on the internet.

Darin Harris, 29, was arrested on August 24 by the Shelby County Sheriff's Office in Tennessee. The ever-vigilant Starfield community on Reddit noticed this and shared it with the US arrests website

Harris was charged with theft of property worth $2,500-$10,000 USD, theft of property worth $1,000 or less, and marijuana possession. Prior to his arrest, Harris was seen uploading listings for numerous copies of Starfield - including its premium Constellation Edition - on the Japanese e-commerce platform Mercari.

Although Harris has been charged, much of the leaked video is still available online. As we warned earlier this week if you want to avoid Starfield spoilers, be cautious when browsing the web, especially on X (formerly Twitter) and YouTube.

Emil Pagliarulo, the director of design at Bethesda's studio, said in July that they "simply can't" divulge any information about Starfield and that only company president Todd Howard "is authorized to talk publicly about unreleased game information."

Meanwhile, if you want to know more about Starfield and its opening moments, our Ed got to see how it all starts earlier this week at Gamescom. Here you can read all about the beginning of Bethesda's "irresponsibly large" game.

On September 6th, Starfield will be available for everyone on PC and Xbox Series X/S.
