The end of this month will see Gamescom returning as a virtual show once again, and as previously confirmed, Xbox is going to be one of several big names confirmed to have a presence at the show. Now, Microsoft has announced exactly when to expect the dedicated Xbox stream.
The Xbox Gamescom stream has been confirmed for August 24. It will be streamed at 10:00 AM PT / 6:00 PM BST / 7:00 PM CEST, and will be hosted by Parris Lilly and Kate Yeager. Microsoft says you can expect “in-depth updates” about previously announced first party and third party games, including upcoming Xbox Game Pass titles, and games confirmed to be coming this Holiday.
With Forza Horizon 5 and Halo Infinite being the big Xbox games for this Holiday season, we can probably expect to see updates on those two. Perhaps we’ll get that Halo Infinite release date at last- fingers crossed.
Meanwhile, on August 25, we’re going to get another major showing with Gamescom Opening Night Live, hosted by Geoff Keighley, which will be about two hours long and promises to be quite a packed event.
