The Xbox E3 and Bethesda E3 2021 shows might be one giant spectacle. VentureBeat’s Jeff Grubb said on a recent episode of the Game Mess Show that while Microsoft and Bethesda had originally planned on separate shows, they’ve recently decided to merge both together in one seamless showcase (thanks PureXbox).
Grubb’s full comment was:
“In the past I've spoken about Xbox and Bethesda and how their E3 showcase will be kind of separate, but under the same umbrella, and I think in recent weeks they've decided to make it even closer, and make it feel like more of like, one big show.”
Xbox and Bethesda Reportedly Planning One Seamless E3 Showcase
“I think there's still going to be a lot of planning that happens slightly separately, but when they present it to the public, I think it's going to feel more like - here's the Xbox segment, here's the Bethesda segment - but they're sort of just going to go one and the other really quickly, and it's going to kind of all feel like one big thing.”
It’s difficult to say what that means for both showcases, though it seems safe to say anything Bethesda reveals will be geared towards Xbox and PC—not multiple platforms, aside from perhaps a Fallout 76 update.
Elder Scrolls 6 is still a ways away, and there’s no word of a new Fallout anytime soon either. A teaser would be nice, but Starfield seems much more likely to make an appearance, especially considering rumors that the Starfield release date will be sometime in 2021.
