With E3 2019 just a short ways away, Nicholas and I are continuing our predictions series. This time, we’re talking about what we expect to see from the E3 2019 Bethesda showcase. If you’re not sure when a particular conference is being held, you can check the list here.

E3 2019 Bethesda Predictions
Sam: Let’s get to the chase: Doom Eternal is the showpiece of the show. Easily half the conference will be devoted to this title. This is Bethesda’s big game for the year and they’ll do a full blowout of gameplay, new features, and everything else there is to know about the game. I’m expecting it to release in October 2019.
Nick: I really don’t have anything to add, for once we’re in absolute perfect agreement on this. This is going to be a fantastic game.
Nick: Next up, I think we will get a teaser from Tango Gameworks, who will reveal they’ve been working on The Evil Within 3, or at least something Evil Within-related.
Sam: It would make sense. We haven’t really heard from Tango Gameworks in a good while now. With that said, I think it would be a CGI teaser, with a vague 2020 release window. Kind of like how Prey was revealed in 2016.
Sam: I think they are going to announce some post-launch content for Rage 2. Bombastic, over-the-top marketing, probably a price drop, that kind of thing.
Nick: You know they’ve already said that’s happening, right?
Sam: Oh. Well, then I’ll stick with that prediction.
Nick: Fine. I think if we get a next-gen teaser, it would be to see Arkane showing off a next-generation Dishonored title. Arkane are masters of their craft and of level design, showing off what they could do on next-gen would be fantastic.
Sam: If we get a next-gen demo, it’s Starfield. I’m not sure there will be one and I know they already said not to expect Starfield or The Elder Scrolls VI but I think they might relent to let Todd Howard come out and talk about the new improvements made to their engine.
Sam: We can’t ignore that Wolfenstein: Youngblood will be shown. I don’t think it’ll be shown too heavily since it’s out in July but it’ll definitely be there.
Nick: To close our discussion out, I don’t think we should rule out the possibility of a Fallout 3 remaster for modern consoles, including the Switch. It would be a great way for Bethesda Game Studios to do an easy project in the improved engine.
That’s our thoughts on what Bethesda could show at E3 2019! If you’d like to listen to an extended version of this discussion, you can do so at the YouTube video below:
