Bethesda will not hold a digital E3 showcase event this year

By Sean Carey,
With this year's E3 cancelled due Coronavirus pandemic, Bethesda has made the decision not to hold a digital showcase in its place. Bethesda's global senior vice president of marketing and communications, Pete Hines, made the announcement via Twitter.

Several publishers such as Microsoft and Ubisoft have said that they will be holding digital events in place of E3 this year. Bethesda will instead be sharing news about its future games soon. "Given the many challenges we're facing due to the pandemic, we will not host a digital showcase in June," Hines said. "We have lots of exciting things to share about our games and look forward to telling you more in the coming months."

At E3, we were expecting to see more on games such as Starfield, GhostWire: Tokyo, Deathloop and the big one, The Elder Scrolls VI.

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a significant impact on the games industry. Aside from big games conferences either being called off or postponed, titles such as Minecraft Dungeons and Wasteland 3 have been delayed. Bethesda has also cancelled the 25th annual QuakeCon due to the virus.
