As for what to expect, it’s a safe bet that we’ll get a fresh look at Starfield. I’m hoping to hear more about Redfall, a vampire shooter Bethesda showed off last summer and hasn’t said a whole lot about since. There will surely be trailers and teasers for previously unannounced games too.
Even though there will be no E3 this year, there will be plenty of gaming news in the following weeks. Microsoft has announced an Xbox and Bethesda games presentation for June 12th (yeah, that’s a Sunday) at 1 p.m. ET. The event will contain details on Xbox Game Studios, Bethesda, and Microsoft’s partners’ titles. It appears to be very extensive, with information on “all you need to know about the broad portfolio of titles coming shortly to the Xbox ecosystem” promised. This contains projects in the works for both Xbox and PC Game Pass.
The event will be broadcast in 30 languages (including American Sign Language) on platforms including YouTube, Twitch, Twitter, Facebook and TikTok. In terms of other gaming events, Summer Game Fest will return this year. THQ Nordic has also set a showcase for August 12th.
