E3 2021 is soon to arrive, and of course, Bethesda will make an appearance, but it is not alone. Microsoft announced that it will hold a joint E3 conference with Bethesda on June 13, 10 a.m. PT – a 90-minute reveal of the two’s latest games. This falls in line with Microsoft’s purchase of Zenimax in March this year.

You can expect a lot from this event. Bethesda has largely been quiet about The Elder Scrolls VI, and Starfield likely won’t come out this year. It has been nearly 10 years since the last Elder Scrolls game; all we know about its 6th entry is that the region is mountainous. Furthermore, the prospect of a new original Bethesda series is exciting. Starfield takes place in space, but whether it revolves around space exploration or a story locked to a station remains uncertain. Even a little information about those two alone is huge; the most we’ve received are very brief teasers.
Microsoft has a lot to bring to the table as well. E3 would be a good opportunity to show Halo Infinite in full detail – seeing as it got delayed to Fall 2021. Other Microsoft IPs to potentially reveal include Forza Horizon, Gears, and Age of Empires.
Microsoft and Bethesda’s E3 event can be seen on Twitch, YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook.
