Rumour: Xbox & Bethesda's E3 Event Will Feel Like 'One Big Showcase'

We're now just a month away from the return of E3 in June 2021, so rumours surrounding the event are bound to ramp up over the next few weeks, and this latest report arrives from Venture Beat's Jeff Grubb on his Game Mess Show.

Grubb, who often dishes out insider info on the Xbox industry, told fans that he believes Xbox and Bethesda will essentially be combining their shows at E3 this year, following Microsoft's recent acquisition of the company:

"In the past I've spoken about Xbox and Bethesda and how their E3 showcase will be kind of separate, but under the same umbrella, and I think in recent weeks they've decided to make it even closer, and make it feel like more of like, one big show.

I think there's still going to be a lot of planning that happens slightly separately, but when they present it to the public, I think it's going to feel more like - here's the Xbox segment, here's the Bethesda segment - but they're sort of just going to go one and the other really quickly, and it's going to kind of all feel like one big thing."

It's no surprise to hear that Xbox and Bethesda might be thinking about combining shows, especially if Bethesda' Starfield is going to be a big part of Xbox's event this year, which seems pretty likely right now.

In any case, Microsoft will probably come out and highlight Xbox's E3 plans over the next few weeks, so it shouldn't be long until we get the full rundown on what to expect in terms of format. Not long to go until the big event!
