We’re writing in August; therefore, this year’s Gamescom will be held there. Due to the challenging conditions produced by the coronavirus epidemic, the Cologne event will be entirely digital. Microsoft will also pay homage to the occasion by holding separate presentations for Xbox and Bethesda.
Even though Gamescom doesn’t start until August 25 at 8 p.m., Xbox will present on August 24 at 7 p.m. to share more details about internal and external partners’ future addresses. For example, the Xbox-exclusive Forza Horizon 5 already features a lot of exciting data regarding Obisidian Entertainment’s RPGs, Awowed and The Outer Worlds 2, Halo Infinite, and Age of Empires IV.
Sure, the Xbox has curiously refused to divulge which addresses would be reported, but we expect the above IPs to be included in the program. During the event, Game Pass titles will be available. In June, Parris Lily, who also presented the enlarged E3 Xbox conference, will host the event.
