Microsoft and Bethesda will host a joint E3 conference this year. The news was revealed In an interview with Le Figaro, where Xbox Game Studios head Matt Booty said the two companies will share the spotlight during E3 2021 following Microsoft’s landmark $7.5 Billion acquisition of ZeniMax. “Microsoft and Bethesda will host a joint conference this summer to introduce players to their upcoming projects,” the article reads. On Twitter, the author Chloé Woitier noted the conference would be coming “in a few weeks,” most likely during E3 2021, which takes place from June 12-15.

Elsewhere in Woitier’s Twitter thread, they note Microsoft’s strategy is to “leave studios their creative freedom” post-acquisition. As for future acquisitions, Booty reportedly said “I can’t share anything,” but Woitier added that “it did not smell of a firm and definitive no”.
