Microsoft has made a behavior of dropping Easter eggs in its distant streams throughout the coronavirus pandemic. So with the Bethesda-Xbox roundtable event celebrating the acquisition, absolutely we have been going to be teased concerning the setting of Elder Scrolls VI, a Starfield-themed Xbox console, and the blood sort of Doomguy, proper? Because it seems, nope.
That could be partially due to the venue. Reasonably than a distant occasion by which we spied on the places of work of varied Xbox executives, this one was held at Bethesda headquarters. That workplace house has loads of Bethesda decor, starting from a life-sized Doom Slayer to Corvo’s masks from Dishonored, however none of that appears to be significantly new or surprising.
The one distant name got here from Xbox head of partnerships Sarah Bond, who joined in from Xbox headquarters in Redmond. Equally, her background was adorned with framed artwork based mostly on big Xbox franchises like Halo and Minecraft, and less-huge Xbox franchises like State of Decay.
Once more, there do not look like any hidden clues or Easter eggs hidden again there, except it is the one image obscured behind Bond’s head. It seems like that will be dishonest.
Todd Howard’s Indiana Jones fandom as soon as even sparked (false) rumors that he was dropping clues earlier than Bethesda introduced its Indy sport. Because it seems, he is only a massive fan of Indiana Jones, so the looks was coincidental. However this time, he would not appear to have revealed any such hidden pursuits.
Okay, yeah, that is not something and that is getting unhappy.
It appears to be like like this time, at the least, the occasion did not drop any teasers for issues to come–unless Microsoft and Bethesda shock us with an announcement in a couple of months after which we study that the clues have been hiding right here all alongside. It isn’t exterior the realm of risk, nevertheless it’s a lot much less possible that they are hiding unannounced tasks now that we’re all on the lookout for them.
What we did get out of the occasion is critical, nevertheless. The businesses introduced 20 more Bethesda games joining Xbox Game Pass, touched on in-development games like Starfield, and hinted that Bethesda games may well be exclusive to Xbox–or at the least wherever that Sport Go goes.
