Bethesda has confirmed that they will be attending E3 2019 after some speculated they might join other major companies by not attending the biggest gaming convention of the year.

“E3 is coming, and on Sunday, June 9 (5:30PM PT), Team Bethesda returns to Los Angeles for our 5th Annual Bethesda E3 Showcase,” reads a statement on the Bethesda website. “It’s going to be a hell of a night. We have got an in-depth look at DOOM Eternal plus much, much more.”

Bethesda goes on to say that they want to “Be Together” with everyone this year (which is also the tagline of the teaser poster they used to announce this year’s event), which means that they will invite more people to attend the show. This includes both invitations to press attendees and the general public. They promise that they will release more information on how to acquire tickets soon. 

It’s hardly a surprise that Bethesda name drops Doom Eternal in their announcement given that it’s the biggest game in their arsenal with a confirmed release window that will not have been made available by the time E3 2019 rolls around. We also assume that we’ll hear much more about Wolfenstein Youngblood, Fallout 76‘s upcoming DLC schedule, updates for Elder Scrolls Online, and updates to all of their ongoing titles.

What we don’t know is which new games will be announced and whether or not we’ll get substantial updates for Starfield and Elder Scrolls VI. We imagine that we’ll hear more about whatever Dishonored and Prey developer Arkane Studios is working on, and we assume that we’ll at least get some kind of update on Starfield. Just don’t hold your breath for a meaningful Elder Scrolls VI update, as that game is likely several years away. 

It’s also nice to hear that Bethesda will attend E3 in force after Sony elected to drop out of this year’s event and EA confirmed that they will skip this year’s press conference.
