Given the timing, it seems fair to assume that Halo Infinite should have a sizable presence during the event. Another likely subject would be Forza Horizon 5 as well. And while Battlefield 2042 certainly is not exclusive to Xbox, Electronic Arts did announce that the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S are the official consoles for the title, whatever that actually means. Whatever the case, there's not long to wait now as Gamescom 2021 is just on the horizon.
As noted above, the Gamescom 2021 Xbox stream is set for August 24th at 1PM ET/10AM PT. The Xbox Series X|S are currently available for $499 and $299, respectively, if you can find either of them in stock anywhere.
