With the cancellation of E3 this year, there’s a pretty big hole in the gaming industry’s schedule. In recent years, however, more and more publishers have begun to remove themselves from E3 altogether and instead host their own showcase on their own terms. So maybe not so much will change this year, because Xbox and Bethesda’s Showcasetogether with Summer Games Fest and other publisher-specific showcases, should help fill the gap.
Based on the teasers released so far, it looks like the upcoming Xbox and Bethesda showcase on June 12 will focus on Bethesda’s highly anticipated starfield, which will be released by the end of the year. Together with starfieldfans will probably see too Arkane’s 4 Player Co-op Vampire Shooter redfall, and some more information and revelations about already confirmed titles. But a big-name gaming convention would be nothing without a few surprises, and Xbox and Bethesda’s Showcase will likely have a few reveals in store.
Some Possible Xbox and Bethesda Showcase Surprises
Xbox and Bethesda’s Showcase will currently run about 90 minutes, which is quite long, but also comparable to the last few showcases. And if the last few showcases have anything to offer, there must be a significant number of games on display. While a few of Upcoming games from Xbox and Bethesda are surefire hits that will show up somewhere in the presentation, there are a few games that fans haven’t heard of in quite some time, or fans don’t know anything about at all. MachineGames is coming Indiana Jones title is such a game.
Confirmed in January 2021, Wolfenstein developer MachineGames is working on a brand new Indiana Jones title, and fans haven’t heard anything official about it since. With no general release date available, it seems unlikely that: the new Indiana Jones game was supposed to appear in the upcoming Xbox and Bethesda showcase, but that would make it a great surprise reveal.
New Games on Xbox and Bethesda Showcase
Xbox and Bethesda’s Showcase may also reveal some titles that fans aren’t aware of yet. A new ones precipitation game, for example, would come as a huge surprise to many, as there have been practically no rumors or speculation about another entry in the post-apocalyptic franchise. A third main line Wolfenstein entry would also be a nice surprise, especially with Wolfenstein: Youngblood didn’t quite live up to fans’ expectations and left the series a bit sour. Giving fans a brief tease of another BJ Blazkowicz-led adventure could be a smart move for the publishers.
The Xbox and Bethesda Showcase could even deliver some far-left surprises, perhaps finally confirming the long rumor GoldenEye 007 remake† Over the past year or so, there have been many leaks around a Golden Eye remake, including a leaked Xbox Achievements list, so it might make sense for it to finally be revealed at this year’s Xbox Bethesda Showcase.
Some high-profile Xbox Game Pass surprises may also be on the line for Xbox and Bethesda’s Showcase. Since Game Pass is such a pivotal service for Xbox right now, it makes sense that it would want to keep it center stage alongside new game reveals. Some surprising Game Pass reveals may include recent heavy-hitters like Ghostwire: Tokyo or even some of the recent ones Duty entries to build hype for Modern Warfare 2†
