Although Bethesda stole the show at E3 2015, it may have been a one-time affair according to Bethesda’s VP of marketing and PR Pete Hines in an interview with The Telegraph.

Hines talked about how this year “felt like the right time” for Bethesda to hop on stage and have a presser. After all, how often do they have as many as seven games on the docket to announce? Battlecry, Dishonored: Definitive Edition, Dishonored 2, DOOM, Fallout 4, Fallout Shelter, and The Elder Scrolls Legends is one heck of a line up.

“I don’t know if we’ll do one next year. I don’t know if we’ll do one again,” said Hines. “It felt like more than we could accomplish in a booth.”

Bethesda tends to take their time when it comes to what they publish, especially with properties like Fallout and Elder Scrolls, so the odds that the stars align and this many games could be on the horizon again from the company is indeed a longshot. It makes sense then that Bethesda is wary of making this an on-going tradition.

This isn’t to say they’ll never kick off E3 again, but at least for the foreseeable future, Bethesda is happy it seems to have had their moment in the sun. Now, time for them to get back to work on Elder Scrolls VI.
