With e3 a distance memory, and Comic Con still lingering in our minds, the next big event for gaming fans and nerds alike will be Gamescom in early August. Gamescom has been on my mind since early June, when Microsoft first announced that many of my most anticipated Xbox titles would be no-shows at e3, instead choosing to highlight them at this years upcoming event.
The titles that I am most excited for will finally be featured in all of their glory: Scalebound, Quantum Break, and Crackdown are all on the guest list, including a few surprise announcements.
With all of these heavy hitters at the show, what won’t be mentioned? Phil Spencer recently announced that Sea of Thieves and Recore will not be at the event. According to Spencer, the reasoning behind it is that “another demo so close to E3 is just tough on production”. I completely agree with him. I would much rather have the companies perfecting their games for release instead of wasting precious resources on a demo so close to their recent unveiling.
The Gamescom Xbox briefing will take place on Tuesday, August 4 at 7am PT / 10am ET. You can watch the briefing on Xbox One, Xbox 360, Xbox.com and Windows Phone.
I am really excited to hear more, but am some what disappointed at the no-shows, even if it was expected. What about you? Are you anxious to hear more, or are you more of a Playstation gamer? Let us know in the comments down below!
