E3 2021 is officially fully operational as today, June 13th, marks the second day of the four-day event. While there is certainly plenty going on at E3 this year, today holds the first potentially massive presentation thanks to playing host to the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase. While we know exactly when to tune in, the specifics of what the two will actually show remain a mystery. Even so, there are some likely participants and some unlikely ones based on what’s been said and reports and rumors circling the event.
When Is the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase?
The actual event kicks off today at 1PM ET/10AM PT. Given that the Square Enix showcase is set to immediately follow Xbox and Bethesda, that puts Xbox and Bethesda’s allotted time at around 2 hours and 15 minutes. That sounds like a lot, but it’s almost certain to contain plenty of deep dives and other such content that isn’t directly a world premiere announcement or anything of the sort.

Just about every streaming platform from YouTube to Twitch will host the event, and that includes E3 2021’s platforms itself. All you really need to do is find an official Xbox account of your choice, and you’re set. For ease of access, we have gone ahead and embedded the official Xbox YouTube placeholder above, which should kick into he actual livestream when, well, live.

What to Expect at the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase
It seems fair to assume, based on the fact that the placeholder art for the event prominently features it, that we will get plenty of information about the upcoming Halo Infinite. Other rumored reveals include a sequel to The Outer Worlds, something about Starfield, Psychonauts 2, and more. Current chatter indicates that the new Fable and Perfect Dark likely won’t make an appearance, but who knows for sure. Those are just predictions, however, and anything could really happen.
As noted above, the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase at E3 2021 is set to take place today at 1PM ET/10AM PT. The exact details of what might be revealed during the broadcast remain unclear, for now. You can check out all of our previous coverage of E3 2021 right here.
