This year was the 25th edition of QuakeCon, the joint gaming convention with id Software and Bethesda, two of the biggest names associated with video games. As you might guess, due to the outbreak of COVID-19, the event has been completely canceled.
“The last thing we have to do now is to join,” Bethesda said in the statement. The event will be canceled like so many others like E3 and events related to consumer technology such as MWC 2020 and the respective presentations of the mobile phone brands.
The event would originally take place in August. It is estimated that by that time the pandemic is under control, however, it is impossible to organize an event of such magnitude in these conditions. It is likely that both studios will do some digital transmission to announce possible news.
Doom Eternal is the latest collaboration from companies
Doom Eternal is the latest release from id Software, which developed the game and Bethesda, responsible for distribution. The Doom franchise has been in existence since 1993, with the first release for MS-DOS.
The shooting game is one of the most famous in the world of video games, where the player must shoot and destroy demonic creatures, in a space setting. Doom is inspired by Wolfenstein 3D, considered the “grandfather” of First Person Shooters, also created by id Software, in 1992.
Doom Eternal was released on March 20 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC. A version for the Nintendo Switch is also programmer, although it still has no release date. This game is a delight for any fan of shooting games with monsters, carnage and many weapons in the mix.
