Xbox At Gamescom 2021: Everything You Need To Know

Gamescom 2021 has crept up on us, with the festivities getting started tomorrow, August 24 with a special Xbox stream that will "share the latest updates and gameplay for some of the biggest games coming soon to Xbox."

Here's a bit of what you can look forward to during the event:

"You’ll get in-depth updates from some of our previously announced Xbox Game Studios titles alongside some of our third-party partners, including some of the incredible titles coming to Xbox this holiday, upcoming releases to our monthly subscription service, Xbox Game Pass, and much more."

The show will be hosted by Parris Lilly and Kate Yeager, and based on the description above, it does sound like this will be more of an update-style show rather than packed with new game announcements. However, we'd expect to see the likes of Forza Horizon 5 and Halo Infinite in attendance, hopefully with a release date for the latter as well.

Update: Xbox's Aaron Greenberg has confirmed there will be "no new reveals or major surprises" at the show.
