Bethesda and Microsoft will hold a joint meeting at E32021 this year.
The new features of the Bethesda and Microsoft joint session were revealed in an interview with Matt Booty, head of Xbox Games Studios.
In an interview with a French outlet Le Figaro (Subscription required), it’s According to the author Chloe Woitie The meeting will be held within a few weeks. This probably means E32021 (thank you, IGN).
Both Microsoft and Bethesda tend to host separate shows during the meeting, which makes sense this year given that the latter is now owned by the Xbox company.
At this point, it’s unclear what Bethesda will see during the meeting, but it may finally be possible to see how Starfield is progressing. According to Jason Schreier of The Wall Street Journal, The game will appear in E3, but it will not be released this year as the game is “not completed anywhere”. So you’re probably looking at sometime in late 2022.
And I don’t know if I’ll hear anything else in the next Elder Scrolls game, but it would be great if Starfield came before that. Again, it can take “a few years” to know something about it (booooo!)
Microsoft is just one of the companies identified at this year’s virtual conference. Others are Capcom, Nintendo, Take Two, Ubisoft, Namco Bandai, Gearbox, Sega, Square Enix, and Xseed Games.
I’m sure more companies will be announced at a later date.
The Summer Game Fest, which will be held around the same time as this year’s E3, will begin on June 10th, just days before E32021. This year’s partners include 2K Games, Activision, Bandai Namco, Blizzard, Capcom, Devolver Digital, EA, Epic Games, Gearbox, Hi-Rez, PlayStation, Riot, Sega, Square Enix, Steam, Ubisoft, Warner, Xbox and many more. Developers and publishers.
E32021 will run from June 12th to 15th.
