Xbox does what PlayStation does not – Attends gamescom
Gamescom 2022 can be a return to in-person occasions. With 2022 being a bit barren, many main firms are skipping this 12 months’s present just because they’ve little or nothing to point out. Sony and Nintendo each pulled out, however Xbox goes to point out up.
Microsoft introduced at the moment that it’s going to have a bodily presence on the German present, scheduled for August 24-28 in Cologne.
The firm will share updates on already introduced video games, coming to Xbox over the subsequent 12 months – which is just about what we bought on the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase in June. Xbox did not say, nonetheless, what number of of these can be first-party video games vs third-party and associate video games.
We additionally do not know if we should always count on a showcase occasion similarly, or if Xbox’s presence can be primarily centered on those that attend gamescom. The excellent news is that extra particular particulars can be revealed in early August.
Not-E3’s Xbox showcase introduced us loads of new reveals, however it was a little bit slim on surprises in comparison with earlier years. With only a few exceptions, the corporate determined to restrict the line-up to video games nearing completion.
Xbox had been criticised prior to now for overloading its exhibits with CG trailers of tasks very early in improvement, and the platform holder responded to criticism. This 12 months’s gamescom presence will observe the identical mantra.
