Assuming E3 2020 still happens, Bethesda’s Pete Hines has confirmed that we’ll see more of GhostWire: Tokyo at the convention.
One of the more marquee announcements that we got during Bethesda’s E3 showcase last year came in the way of the reveal for GhostWire: Tokyo. The latest project from Tango Gameworks, the studio associated with Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami and former director Ikumi Nakamura, has since been completely silent, however, causing many to wonder when we might start to hear more. According to one of Bethesda’s most notable faces, though, we should begin to hear more in just a few months.
On the latest episode of Kinda Funny’s We Have Cool Friends podcast, Bethesda’s Senior Vice President of Global Marketing and Communications, Pete Hines, touched briefly on GhostWire: Tokyo and confirmed that the game is planned to appear at E3 2020. Hines also remarked on the state of E3 this year, saying that it was never in Bethesda’s plans not to attend the convention. He also touched on the past history of the show and how it was thought to have been left for dead in the past only to then bounce back later.
Speaking to GhostWire: Tokyo a bit more, Hines also said that the game somehow serves as a parallel to next week’s release of DOOM Eternal. “I won’t say anything now, but it does have an interesting parallel to DOOM Eternal that I’ll talk to you about once we show GhostWire, that I’m curious if you’ve picked up or noticed,” Hines said. “After you see it, I’ll explain a little bit about it. I’m sure we’ll talk a little bit about where the connective tissue is between those two things.”
It’s a bit intriguing to hear that GhostWire and DOOM Eternal are somehow working in parallel to one another. While this is most likely not a direct correlation between the games and is instead one that is more metaphorical, I’m curious to hear what Hines is talking about once GhostWire is fully revealed.
For now, GhostWire: Tokyo doesn’t have a release window and the platforms it will be arriving on haven’t been announced, either. It seems likely that we’ll hear more concrete plans about when and where it will be launching this summer, though, so stay tuned.
