Around this time every year, publishers beginning sending out invites to their E3 press conferences and other events. Bethesda is once again joining the party, with a showcase planned for June 11th in downtown Los Angeles. 

While this year’s invite included the expected request for an RSVP, it also included a curious picture. Within, the artist has drawn homages to several familiar Bethesda-produced series, including Doom, Fallout, Dishonored, Elder Scrolls, Quake, and Prey. In addition, you can see that two areas of “Bethesdaland” remained under construction, suggesting that we may be hearing about some new projects on that Sunday event. 

Alternately, it’s certainly possible that the two unidentifiable areas are simply artistic license, to illustrate Bethesda’s nebulous future plans. To be honest, that seems less likely. 

Make up your own mind; check out the full invite image below.

What do you think? What projects are you hoping Bethesda has on deck beyond their existing slate of projects?

 

Our Take
Bethesda recently stepped up into the sphere of hosting its own annual E3 show. Their first attempts to do so illustrated strong slates of games. The pressure is on in 2017 for the publisher to show they can maintain a strong presence year after year, and two new announcements would go a long way to help make the point.
