Next year is probably going to be Deathloop to open, Ghostwire Tokyo to follow, a new announcement or two (Fallout for Switch?), and then a Starfield deep dive for next-gen launch.
It is quite frustrating that they allowed the game to go ahead, knowing the brand damage it could cause. At the very least they should have delayed it by a year to add the content fans expect from a Fallout game.That was imo a huge management mistake. Bethesda: so we have this BattleCry team who just fucked up the BattleCry game, what to do with them? Oh, let's reward them by giving them another project to butcher, let's say... which one... yeah, Fallout. And let's promote them to being a part of BGS while we're at it, goodness knows BGS is too small nowadays.
If BattleCry is canceled for lack of quality, so should 76.
Literally what I concluded in the same post you quoted and then cut =P
So far E3 as a whole has been fairly bad. Studios are just showing up to show off the dregs of what they have the left for the current gen. No-one is really ready to show off next gen games. I'm still holding out hope for Ubisoft though. We all know Watch Dogs didn't turn out so great in the end, but I'll never forget the reveal trailer for that game - a gameplay demo of a next gen game when most people were still showing exclusively 360 and PS3 games. I'd love to see something similar from them this year.
There was a really wholesome segment with a Japanese lady, but was pretty much all CG trailers outside of Doom and Wolf and a really annoying crowd that absolutely ruined the show, so just watch the trailers on YouTube and you'll probably have a much better show.
I think this is the only way to come out of this year's E3 with a positive note! "At least next year's E3 will be amazing" =D
Starfield is basically guaranteed to be 2021. Todd has spoken about how this is basically only going to be on next-gen systems. Rockville is 4x larger than when they were developing Skyrim but if we were to follow the typical BGS pattern, their new game is always 3-4 years after the release of their last and this has been the case since Fallout 3.
Yeah I must admit I've been pretty underwhelmed so far this year. I mean I get it now we're so close to next-gen releasing but meh.
I was there. There was an open bar for at least 2 hours prior and it was definitely being utilized. After the event they fed everyone and had a huge open area with 3 or 4 more open bars. Overall it was a great time.
Well that explains it, does sound like a great time though.
These announcements would be perfect for a State of Play, Nintendo Direct or and Inside Xbox. But it's really obvious people are just bidding their time for Next Gen and it shows.
