Bethesda not expected to announce anything at E3

Have your fingers crossed for any potential Bethesda-flavoured surprises in six weeks time, like the Elder Scrolls MMO? Keep walking, Ringo.

PR honcho and VP Peter Hines has told Joystiq not to expect any announcements from the firm at E3 next month, insisting that Quakecon will most likely be when to have ears on the ground [Quakecon takes place between August 12-15 – JC].

“Probably not,” he says when asked if that were to be the case.

“Just me, personally, both from my days, even though it seems eons ago where I used to attend E3 as a journo and now with my ten-plus years at Bethesda, I just don’t think E3 is a great place to announce anything. It’s just so much stuff going on that it tends to get lost, so I think we tend to try and go outside of that window for new announcements. I think we’ll have a lot of new things to show.

“For example, all these games that we’re talking about will have new stuff. We hope to be hands-on with the majority of them for the press, that kind of thing. But as far as new announcements, I think we would either do those kinds of things and maybe be more inclined to do them at events like QuakeCon.”

But why wait until next month for more info on Bethesda’s current-line up? There’s always now. We checked out some of its games last week, like Brink, Rage, Fallout: New Vegas and Hunted: The Demon’s Forge. Get everything from the event here.
