Developer: Arkane Studios
GhostWire: Tokyo has “an interesting parallel to DOOM Eternal,” Hines adds.
At E3 2019, Bethesda unveiled two major new properties. The new spooky action-adventure IP GhostWire: Tokyo and the first person action title Deathloop, coming from Tango Gameworks and Arkane Studios respectively, were both revealed with curious new trailers, though there wasn’t much that was revealed about either game.
There’s been no word from Bethesda or the respective developers on both games since their announcements (other than GhostWire: Tokyo’s creative director leaving Tango), but you can expect to hear more about both games come June. Recently, while speaking to Kinda Funny, Bethesda’s VP of PR and marketing Pete Hines confirmed that we can expect to hear more about both games at E3 2020.
Speaking about Deathloop, Hines said (at about the 6:15 mark in the video below), “It’s a safe bet that you’ll hear a lot more about it at E3. Whether there might be a little something between now and then, who’s to say.”
“I think you’re going to be pleased,” he added, saying that fans of Arkane Studios’ works – which includes games like Dishonored and Prey – will like what they’re doing with their new game. “They’re doing some really cool stuff with that, where it feels pretty familiar, but then also like, hey, they’re to sort of do some things different.”
Meawhile, later on, Hines also talked about GhostWire: Tokyo in particular, saying that the game has “an interesting parallel to DOOM Eternal” that people will probably pick up on once Bethesda has spoken more about the game.
“On both Deathloop and GhostWire, I’m really excited for you to see the game itself,” he said (at about the 51:15 mark). “I won’t say anything now, but it does have an interesting parallel to DOOM Eternal that I’ll talk to you about once we show GhostWire, that I’m curious if you’ve picked up or noticed. After you see it, I’ll explain a little bit about it. I’m sure we’ll talk a little bit about where the connective tissue is between those two things.”
When asked if that game, too, will be at E3, Hines answered affirmatively.
Let’s just hope things go well and E3 2020 doesn’t end up having to get cancelled.
