With the traditional E3 event we all know and love being cancelled due to coronavirus concerns, a number of publishers have committed to sharing digitally streamed events in its place. Bethesda will not be one of them.
Bethesda's vice president of marketing and communications, Pete Hines, has taken to social media to discuss the company's plans. Despite the no-show, he stresses that Bethesda still has "lots of exciting things to share" in the coming months.
Given the many challenges we're facing due to the pandemic, we will not host a digital Showcase in June. We have lots of exciting things to share about our games and look forward to telling you more in the coming months.
The news will come as a blow to fans of the studio hoping for more news on games like The Elder Scrolls VI and Starfield, and we would have expected to see something regarding the upcoming Switch version of DOOM Eternal.
Square Enix, Ubisoft, Microsoft and Nintendo have all expressed a desire to stream digital events in place of E3, so we're sure there will still be plenty to enjoy over the course of the event's usual week in June.
