Bethesda has finally revealed that the company will again host its annual pre-E3 Showcase. This event serves as a yearly peak behind the development curtain, giving players a look at new trailers and information on upcoming games. This year’s Bethesda E3 Showcase takes place on June 9 at 8:30 p.m. EDT.

Tickets will be available for those that can attend the event in Los Angeles, although details haven’t been confirmed yet. That said, we do know the event will be livestreamed for all those that can’t make it in person. The Bethesda E3 Showcase Stream for 2019 will be live on a number of different sites including Twitch, YouTube, Mixer, Twitter and Facebook Live.

The announcement tweet above from Bethesda includes a humorous jab at Walmart Canada. Walmart Canada had a leak on its website, revealing many of Bethesda’s major announcements before they were made.

So what can we expect to see at this year’s Bethesda E3 Showcase? There are a few things we are certain about, and many games we think will make an appearance. It’s safe to say there will be announcements about Bethesda’s online games, including Fallout 76 and The Elder Scrolls Online.

Other highly likely games that should appear on the show include Wolfenstein: Youngblood and DOOM Eternal. Both are in development now, and should release later this year. Expect to see release date announcements for one or both at the Showcase.

The games we aren’t so positive will make an appearance include Starfield and The Elder Scrolls 6. Both games made very brief cameos at last year’s show, with Bethesda’s Todd Howard confirming the two are in various states of development. It has been confirmed that Starfield will release first, so it’s safer to expect more information on Bethesda’s sci-fi RPG over any Elder Scrolls announcements.

The true wildcard will be if Bethesda makes any announcements about the future of the single-player Fallout games. Fallout 76 had a notoriously rocky launch, and is only now starting to smooth out the playing experience. This negative reception might have been enough to greenlight a Fallout 5, or it might have had the opposite effect of cooling off the franchise at Bethesda. Seeing as how Fallout 5 (or whatever the next main Fallout game will be called) is likely to release after The Elder Scrolls 6, I wouldn’t expect to hear any news just yet on Bethesda’s return to post-apocalyptic America.
