Bethesda Won’t Host Digital Showcase in June

However, Bethesda's Pene Hines says there are "lots of exciting things to share" in the coming months.

Despite companies like Ubisoft and Microsoft planning digital events in the wake of E3 2020’s cancellation, Bethesda Softworks will not be following suit. Bethesda SVP of global marketing and communications Pete Hines confirmed the same on Twitter. The COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic has been cited as causing “many challenges”.

“Given the many challenges we’re facing due to the pandemic, we will not host a digital showcase in June,” Hines wrote. “We have lots of exciting things to share about our games and look forward to telling you more in the coming months.” It’s possible that new trailers, reveal streams, and previews could be provided in the coming months, so stay tuned.

Bethesda, along with id Software, also recently cancelled QuakeCon 2020, but the lack of a digital showcase is somewhat surprising. The company does have plenty coming up, including Arkane Studios’ Deathloop, Tango Gameworks’ GhostWire: Tokyo (both of which it planned to show at E3), and of course, Starfield and The Elder Scrolls 6. All of that will have to wait until further updates are provided.

In the meantime, Fallout 76 will receive its Wastelanders update on April 14th for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. The update will add a new main quest, new weapons and armor, and see the return of human NPCs and factions for players to interact with.
