Bethesda’s E3 2019 press conference: watch it here

New, 3 comments

Expect a lot of Doom Eternal, but not much on next-generation games

Bethesda kicks off its E3 2019 festivities with a press conference on Sunday, June 9, at 5:30 p.m. PDT/8:30 p.m. EDT. You can watch it live right here, or on Twitch, YouTube, Twitter, Mixer, and Facebook Live.

We know from the company’s official blog post that Bethesda will be showing an in-depth look at Doom Eternal during the event, but the rest is open to speculation. Todd Howard has previously said not to expect much, if anything, on the upcoming Elder Scrolls 6 or Starfield, however.

The theme of the event, or at least the official catchphrase, is “be together,” so take from that what you can.

Bethesda may be one of those companies with a good percentage of its business wrapped up in games that will launch alongside, or near, Microsoft and Sony’s upcoming next-generation consoles, so this could be a relatively slow year for big announcements. Still, Rage 2 may get a little more love with post-launch content, and Doom Eternal is nothing to sneeze at, based on what we saw last year.

And there’s always room for surprises, so we’re looking forward to watching the event with you this Sunday. See you then! Or... you can see us on Polygon’s Twitch channel, where we’ll be streaming the conference with commentary (and a drinking game).
