On Xbox Wire, the Editor in Chief Will Tuttle announced Microsoft’s plans for this year’s Gamescom. We’re just a few weeks away from their conference and the excitement is palpable. Here’s the official Press Release explaining Xbox’s plans:
gamescom 2015 Xbox Briefing
Tuesday, August 4
4:00 p.m. CEST (10:00 a.m. EDT)
During our E3 2015 Xbox Briefing, we shared the first part of our vision for the future of Xbox gaming. That will continue when the Xbox Team takes the stage the evening before gamescom officially kicks off to share the latest on the games coming to Xbox One, including highly anticipated titles like Scalebound, Quantum Break, and Crackdown. We’ll take a closer look at those and other upcoming games, as well as share some exciting announcements. So tune in to the gamescom 2015 Xbox Briefing on Xbox One, Xbox.com, Xbox 360, and Windows Phone to get the latest news and see some hot trailers and demos. Be sure to download the free Xbox Live Event interactive app (XLEi app) on your Xbox One or XLE on your Xbox 360 before the show so you’re ready!
This conference will be aimed at titles that are set for a 2016 and beyond date, which is the opposite of what Microsoft did at this year’s E3 which was mostly aimed at 2015 games. I’m personally super excited to finally see gameplay footage of Scalebound and can’t wait to see what PlatinumGames will be able to achieve on Xbox One.
In case you missed it, Sony won’t be hosting a press conference this year at Gamescom, instead they will have one at Paris Games Week, but this doesn’t mean that they won’t have games on the showfloor.
