We initially thought Microsoft moving their E3 Press Briefing to a Sunday afternoon was a bit odd. Turns out, they were just following the trend set by another prominent publisher. Bethesda has confirmed they are still planning their typical Sunday showcase as well.

Start Planning Your Excuses Now to Show Up Late Monday

While Microsoft will be hitting the stage a an East Coast friendly 5:00 p.m., Bethesda has no such sympathy. The company is still planning to hit the stage late Sunday evening for Easterners, just like last year. But they did take the time to playfully mock Microsoft for jumping aboard the Sunday ship:

Shortly after that, Bethesda’s Vice President of Marketing, Pete Hines, confirmed the Bethesda time slot:

For those that don’t remember, Bethesda began their E3 conference last year at 7:00 p.m. Pacific, 10:00 p.m. Eastern. So it may be tough sledding for those in the Eastern Time Zone that have early wakeup calls on Monday.

Bethesda hasn’t revealed anything planned for the event as of yet. And knowing their M.O., they probably won’t until June 11th comes knocking.

Growing up a 90's kid, Jeff found his love for gaming during Nintendo's heyday. Because of that, you could call him a "Nintendo Fanboy" (albeit a rational one) to this day. Outside of his passion for the gaming industry, he’s also an avid sports enthusiast (New York Giants and Philadelphia Phillies mainly) and enjoys quality/popular TV shows and movies.
