Bethesda has given up on hosting a digital showcase for new and upcoming games in June. With the cancellation of E3 due to Coronavirus, developers across the globe have missed a severe chance of promoting their forthcoming entertainment software titles. Some of them have committed to digital showcase, while Bethesda serves the departure ultimately.
This was confirmed earlier today when Pete Hines had addressed his followers on Twitter. Bethesda’s senior vice president has announced that Bethesda will not host a digital showcase in June. Given the horrific story created by the pandemic that’s currently shattering the whole world, Bethesda will post news regarding the company’s future.
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.

However, the news won’t be representing a title showcase, and will most probably lean towards the health and plans of the developer. QuakeCon, Bethesda’s proud annual e-sport event, is also following its first cancelation due to the Coronavirus, which is the first time in 25 years of existence.
We hope that the world beats this agony as soon as possible, because not only the economy but also the entertainment software may drown into waters.
