Since the coronavirus pandemic situation occurred, many events have been canceled or delayed. Among them are gaming conferences as well. However, this did not stop them from having a place online via live streams. But, it looks like the Bethesda live event is canceled for good. This event won’t be held online, and if it takes place, it won’t happen in the usual period, which is the E3 period in June.
This is not a simple rumor or speculation. The company’s decision was announced by Pete Hines, who is the senior vice president of global marketing and communication. He confirmed on his Twitter page that the Bethesda event is canceled due to the current situation the world is facing. There will be no live streaming of the event in June.
However, this sad turn of the event won’t be the end of it. Hines also mentioned in his tweet that the company had planned a lot of things for its users, and they will share more gaming information in the upcoming months.
The cancelation of the Bethesda live event due to the coronavirus outbreak
“Given the many challenges we’re facing due to the pandemic, we will not host a digital Showcase in June. We have lots of exciting things to share about our games and look forward to telling you more in the coming months,” posted Pete Hines on his Twitter account.
The company made this decision shortly after the cancelation of the QuakeCon event. QuakeCon was supposed to take place in this year’s August, but due to the virus outbreak, the event was canceled. However, this could mean that the Bethesda live event could still take place sometime later in the year. Maybe this game event will be rescheduled if the situation will get better.
Even the Arc World Tour 2020 event was canceled for the same reason. However, the Gamescom is going to live stream events online. Yet, the event in Germany will take place according to the plan in the middle of May. We’ll hopefully hear good news from Bethesda soon.
