What you need to know
- Bethesda has held an E3 conference every year since 2015.
- The COVID-19 pandemic is causing studios and published like Bethesda to implement work from home policies (WFH).
- E3 2020 was canceled earlier this year.
- As a result, Bethesda will not be holding a digital showcase around the same time as E3.
No, it's not an April Fool's joke. Pete Hines, the Senior Vice President of Marketing for Bethesda Softworks, has shared the disappointing news that Bethesda will not be holding a digital showcase around the same time that E3 would've been held, prior to its cancellation. Instead, Bethesda will be sharing information on upcoming games in the months ahead through (presumably) alternative means. You can see Hines' statement on Twitter below.
Given the many challenges we're facing due to the pandemic, we will not host a digital Showcase in June. We have lots of exciting things to share about our games and look forward to telling you more in the coming months.— Pete Hines (@DCDeacon) April 1, 2020
Since 2015, Bethesa Softworks has held an E3 showcase every year. Last year, Bethesda announced many new games and expansions such as Ghostwire: Tokyo and Deathloop from Tango Gameworks and Arkane Lyon, respectively. While it's certainly disappointing that we won't get another showcase this year, it's certainly understanable given the circumstances. Just yesterday, Bethesda confirmed that QuakeCon 2019 was being canceled.
We'll continue to provide updates as news comes in for different Bethesda Softworks games in the months ahead.
