It has already been confirmed that Xbox will have a presence at this year’s Gamescom in Germany. To quote Microsoft’s official statement:
We’re excited to confirm that Xbox will be back on the show floor at Gamescom 2022 in Cologne, Germany. Fans in Europe and around the world can expect updates on some announced games coming to Xbox in the next 12 months.
What we may also glean from the statement is that Xbox will stick with the messaging from June’s Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase events, with a focus on the next 12 months of gaming.
The statement also seemed to emphasize “updates on announced games.” Which probably means we shouldn’t expect any surprise game reveals. Still, the prospect of getting some new info on upcoming games that we’ll be able to play in the next year is an exciting one.
Here’s hoping we see more on the likes of Redfall, the new Forza Motorsport and Starfield come August. Gamescom will be broadcast from Wednesday, August 24 to Sunday, August 28. The event will be a hybrid one, with both in-person and online aspects.
