E3 2019 is still several months away, yet announcements are starting to be made about the games that will be featured at the event, which include the likes of Cyberpunk 2077 by CD Projekt Red and Halo Infinite by Microsoft.
There are companies like EA and Sony that will be skipping E3 for the first time in 2019 (with Sony missing the event for the first time since its inception), but Bethesda is not one of them, as the developer has uploaded a post to Twitter that is promoting its attendance at E3, with a post on the Bethesda website promising that Doom Eternal will be heavily featured, along with "much, much more."
The picture that Bethesda uploaded to Twitter shows characters from their games, including a Cacodemon from Doom and a dragon from Skyrim. The most interesting part of the image is the starry night at the top, as it suggests that Starfield might be featured at the event, which is a game we still know little about.
Start speculating! Refresh @WalmartCanada. Most importantly… save the date! #BE3 is coming on Sunday, June 9th (5:30 PM PT).— Bethesda (@bethesda) March 18, 2019
More details -- including registration -- are coming soon. Can't attend? We will be streaming the whole thing live! #E3 https://t.co/6No81maSXz pic.twitter.com/EIMQjznqsT
The most likely thing we will hear at the Bethesda E3 showcase is an apology for Fallout 76. If there isn't one, then there will at least be attention given to the upcoming free updates to the game, including the Nuclear Winter expansion that is due to be released this summer.
Rage 2 is due to be released in May, so it will likely receive a lot of focus at Bethesda's E3 event, along with the three upcoming Wolfenstein games (Youngblood, Cyberpilot, and Wolfenstein III) that are still lacking release dates.
If Bethesda really wants to get back into the fans good books after the disaster of Fallout 76, then they really need to have some footage of The Elder Scrolls VI as well as some concrete information about the game, as it's easily their most highly anticipated title.
The absence of EA and Sony at E3 2019 may make it seem as if the event has lost importance over the years, but the other developers are simply moving in to take their place and steal all of the spotlight for themselves. Microsoft and Nintendo are planning big events for E3, as well as companies like Devolver Digital, and with Bethesda clearly about to reveal something huge, it would seem as if there is still some life left in E3 after all.
Bethesda's E3 showcase will take place on June 9, 2019.
