Gamescom 2022 is going to be a hybrid physical and digital event and is set for late August, and as we get closer to it, we’re getting more and more concrete details and who will and won’t be attending the event. One of the companies that has been rumoured to have a presence at the show for a while is Microsoft, and now, that’s been officially confirmed.
Xbox confirmed in a message sent recently to the press (via VGC) that it will be at Gamescom next month, and will be bringing updates on several previously announced titles that are due out for Xbox in the next 12 months. That’s in line with the recent Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase, where all the games that were showcased were said to be launching within the next year.
“Following our recent Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase, we’re excited to confirm that Xbox will be back on the show floor at Gamescom 2022 in Cologne, Germany,” Microsoft said, “Fans in Europe and around the world can expect updates on some announced games coming to Xbox in the next 12 months and a chance to hang out as a community again (in person)!”
So far, the likes of Bandai Namco and Ubisoft have also confirmed that they’ll be attending Gamescom next month, though others like Sony and Nintendo have stated that they won’t have a presence at the event.
