With Sony pulling out of E3 this year, and EA keeping it's separate EA Play event (but without a press conference), it's good to see Bethesda will back to showcase it's upcoming line-up. But, with RAGE 2 out before this year's show - the question then becomes, what will be there onstage?
More Elder Scrolls Online? Sure. Elder Scrolls Legends? Yeah. A look at some new content coming to Fallout 76? Most likely. That new 1980s Wolfenstein expansion? We're ready.
But, in the AAA space that is E3 Hype, we'll need more than that to get excited. Will we finally see the lid lifted on Bethesda Game Studios' mysterious new sci-fi RPG Starfield? Fingers crossed. A deep dive into DOOM Eternal with a release date set for late 2019? Here's hoping the planets align.
Interestingly, since the release of and subsequent backlash surrounding Fallout 76 this, by our accounts, could be the first time we'll have hears from some of the big names at Bethesda (Todd Howard and Pete Hines) in a long while. And on that front, we hope they tackle the feedback head-on - in a fun, E3 sort of way.
