As E3 2021 rounds the corner, rumors of which games may or may not be appearing continue to run rampant. Obsidian Entertainment’s Avowed has been an interesting title to follow in this respect. GamesBeat’s Jeff Grubb said that it would not be at the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase on June 13th. Verified insider sponger would then state that based on the information they had, Avowed would have a trailer and that the game “is almost fully on schedule.”
Now another insider Nate Drake is claiming that it’s no longer on the E3 2021 docket. On ResetEra, he said that he “Did more digging and it does appear Jeff Grubb’s info was more up to date as Avowed no longer appears to be on the E3 docket. It was definitely considered for E3 but hopefully its removal means we see it sooner rather than later at another Microsoft event.”
So it’s possible that previous rumors of the game’s appearance were either outdated or changed at the last minute. In any case, with so many big games in development at Xbox Game Studios and Bethesda, like Starfield, Psychonauts 2 and the rumored Project Typhoon, Avowed could have been left off to make room. As such, you should take all of this with a grain of salt until the show takes places.
Avowed is currently in development for Xbox Series X/S and PC with a rumored release in late 2022/early 2023. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
