Game developer Bethesda Softworks has already sent out RSVP invitations to members of the press to be held on June 14 at the Dolby Theater during the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2015 event in Los Angeles, California.
The invitations actually included images of characters from some of the well-known video game franchises of Bethesda including “Doom,” “Wolfenstein,” “Dishonored,” and “The Evil Within.”
Uncharacteristically, while initial reports said that Bethesda will actually be launching a gameplay trailer of a role-playing video game during its press event, there was no images of characters on either “Fallout 4” or “Elder Scrolls 6” on the invitation, cites Christian Today.
There have been reports last week that there is a good chance that the role-playing game that is being mentioned in the rumors is “Fallout 4” and unlikely the “Elder Scrolls 6.” But given the lack of references on “Fallout 4” or any hints at all from Bethesda, it looks like the developer still wants gamers to think that the E3 2015 game launching would still be a toss-up between “Fallout 4” and “Elder Scrolls 6.”
Now, some fans are having second thoughts whether Bethesda would indeed release the gameplay trailer of “Fallout 4” or “Elder Scrolls 6” during the E3 2015 event. Some are now on the opinion that both video games would be a no-show in the annual trade fair.
Part of the plan
However, the lack of information on “Fallout 4” or “Elder Scrolls 6” on the press invite could actually be part of the grand plan of Bethesda Softworks to lessen media and fan expectations for the event.
As the media and fans come to the E3 2015 in droves and expecting neither “Fallout 4” nor “Elder Scrolls 6” to be launched during the event, giving them something on the contrary would surely drop their jaws or be surprised in amazement.
That could be what Bethesda is aiming for when it officially uncorks the details and gameplay trailer of either “Fallout 4” or “Elder Scrolls 6” in its press event.
Many still believes that Bethesda would likely roll out “Fallout 4” in the upcoming E3 2015 event before the game is finally released on the Xbox One, the PlayStation 4, and the PC either later this year or early next year.
Bethesda has not made any pronouncement or statement to confirm whether it would really be launching the gameplay trailer and other salient details of the post-apocalyptic video game “Fallout 4” on the E3 2015.
New game engine
Contrary to earlier speculations that Bethesda will be using a new game engine for “Fallout 4,” previous rumors indicate that the developer may will be using instead an updated Skyrim’s game engine, called the Creation Engine.
“Fallout 4” has been in production since 2011 and one of the reasons that its development took a long time compared to Bethesda’s previous games is the fact that it was using Skyrim.
