Microsoft Confirms Bethesda Roundtable Presentation Today

It’s official. Microsoft will host a “roundtable conversation” regarding the future of Bethesda, according to Xbox marketing head Aaron Greenberg, noting that this livestream will not focus on any news or game reveals.

“Note, this is NOT FOCUSED ON NEWS/REVEALS,” wrote Greenberg, “but a great chance to learn more about the teams & people at Bethesda.”

This confirms earlier rumors that pointed to Thursday as the day when Microsoft would host a livestream, and also confirmed details from VentureBeat’s Jeff Grubb about what the livestream will discuss. The point of this livestream, according to Grubb, will be to assuage concerns from Bethesda fans about the studio retaining its autonomy while also showing them how the transition to Microsoft ownership has been minimally disruptive.

We can also expect some discussion centered around Xbox Game Pass and the possibility of future exclusive titles. Game Pass will likely make up the bulk of that discussion as it provides an ideal platform to highlight some of Bethesda’s past works and what Game Pass will mean for future projects like Starfield and The Elder Scrolls VI.

Exclusives are also likely to make up some of that discussion as Xbox head Phil Spencer has recently confirmed that some upcoming projects will be PC/Xbox exclusives–at least, for a while anyway.

You’ll be able to tune in to the roundtable discussion on the Xbox YouTube channel starting at 10 AM PST (1 PM EST). Just don’t come in with any big expectations about seeing some new Starfield footage or anything.

Actually a collective of 6 hamsters piloting a human-shaped robot, Sean hails from Toronto, Canada. Passionate about gaming from a young age, those hamsters would probably have taken over the world by now if they didn’t vastly prefer playing and writing about video games instead.

The hamsters are so far into their long-con that they’ve managed to acquire a bachelor’s degree from the University of Waterloo and used that to convince the fine editors at TheGamer that they can write “gud werds,” when in reality they just have a very sophisticated spellchecker program installed in the robot’s central processing unit.
