What to expect from the Xbox and Bethesda E3 Showcase
As this is both an Xbox and Bethesda showcase, there will be titles from both companies. Xbox is likely to discuss the likes of Obsidian’s Avowed, Fable and of course Halo Infinite. Xbox states that the showcase will allegedly discuss titles coming ‘this holiday season’ as well as those coming to Xbox Games Pass.
From Bethesda, there’s hope that we’ll finally here more about Starfield – it’s long overdue a trailer. There may also be updates for Fallout 76 and The Elder Scrolls Online. We’re not holding our breath for any news about The Elder Scrolls VI – but one can dream.
We may also learn more about the exclusivity of Bethesda games on Xbox going forward, a highly debated topic since Microsoft acquired the studio last year. All we know so far is that “some” titles will be exclusive – so all eyes are on the big franchises.
