That's right. Bethesda are holding their own E3 press conference this year, going up against EA and Ubisoft with a glitzy presentation of their own. It's the first time they've ever done so, meaning that they've probably got something worth shouting about.
There's plenty of potential announcements to pick from, seeing as Bethesda both develop and publish their own games, from Fallout 4 to Doom 4 and Dishonored 2. To that end, here are the games and stories we'd expect to see... and how likely we reckon they are to make an appearance.
As far as I'm concerned, Fallout 3 is the best game of the last console generation. It's certainly one of the biggest and most critically-acclaimed (if also one of the buggiest!), so after the incremental updates of New Vegas, we're desperately in need of a full sequel.
We suspect that Fallout 4 will be set Boston and focus on the MIT. We also suspect -- or should that be, hope -- that it will be formally announced this year. We've been wrong before, but our fingers are so very crossed for this one.
Doom 4 has been delayed several times and was redesigned from the ground-up following mediocre feedback and John Carmack's departure.
However, seeing as the Wolfenstein beta is still on the cards, we can expect a big new showing this year. Perhaps a re-reveal, perhaps even a release date announcement. Either way, this will almost certainly make an appearance at Bethesda's first E3 presser.
Dishonored 2 rumours have been circling forever, with Arkane linked to both a sequel and Human Head's sadly-defunct Prey 2.
Frankly, we feel that enough time has passed to make a sequel more than worthwhile, plus Arkane will have had experience with the new-gen consoles too. File this one under probable.
New Shinji Mikami Project
Shinji Mikami's Tango Gameworks is owned by Bethesda, and now that The Evil Within is out, you'd better believe that the creator of Resident Evil and Vanquish will be cracking on with something else.
Since The Evil Within went down the horror route, we're hoping for something more action-oriented this time around!
Hopefully The Elder Scrolls Online will have really picked up as a buy-to-play game by then.
The Elder Scrolls 6
We'd love this to be announced. Really, we would. We've got a list of things we'd like to see from The Elder Scrolls 6 right here.
But we'd be very surprised if they did announce it and reveal details this early, especially since Fallout 4 would seem to be the most likely candidate and revealing both would mean competing with themselves. And TESO!
Still, you never know. Five years elapsed between Oblivion and Skyrim... and Skyrim came out in 2011... so... hold up.
Not to mention all the new surprises that we'll likely see throughout the year. Have any theories about what we will -- and won't -- see at the Bethesda press conference? Let us know in the comments!
