Just a few hours away from the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase today, it’s unknown whether Obsidian Entertainment’s RPG Avowed will appear. Insider Tom Henderson wasn’t sure (somewhat hinting at its absence but not outright confirming) but a LinkedIn post from a Microsoft employee seemingly confirmed its appearance. However, there’s a further twist in the tale.
Replying to a user who hoped it would appear, Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier said on Twitter, “Avowed has gone through some reboots and changed directors pretty recently. Dunno if it’ll be there today, but I wouldn’t expect to play it for a while.” So while it could very well receive a new trailer or news, it might be quite different from reports over the past year. Rumors also pegged it as releasing in Q1/Q2 2023 so it could be pushed further out.
Time will tell so stay tuned for more details. Avowed is currently in development for Xbox Series X/S and PC. Along with The Outer Worlds 2 (which hasn’t been rumored to appear), Obsidian is also reportedly working on Pentiment. Going by recent teases, the investigative RPG could be officially announced at the show.
