After the takeover of Bethesda by Microsoft, they now seem to want to appear together at game events. There seems to be a joint press conference for E3 2021.
Matt Booty, boss of Xbox Game Studios, confirmed in an interview that there will be a joint press conference between Bethesda and Microsoft. Compared to Le Figaro, there was also a statement that the conference should take place in a few weeks, which suggests that E3 2021 is meant, which should take place in virtual form from June 12th to 15th.
It is only logical that the two companies will appear together this time after Bethesda was taken over by Microsoft. It remains to be seen what exactly we can expect from Bethesda. The industry generally assumes that there will be more information about the sci-fi role-playing game Starfield. Then it will surely show whether the current rumors about the PC and Xbox exclusivity and Game Pass will continue to exist.
The well-known industry journalist Jason Schreier from Bloomberg assumes, contrary to other rumors, that Starfield is still a long way from completion and will not become an issue until the end of 2022. We may learn more about this at the press conference as well. It would be about time, after all, Starfield was teased in 2018.
