Microsoft Won’t Have A Press Conference at Gamescom 2016
Aaron Greenberg, General Manager for Xbox Games Marketing, today revealed Microsoft's plans for Gamescom 2016.
The big news is that they don't include a media briefing, also known as press conference. That's probably because neither of the competitors so far have announced one. However, Greenberg promised a "new" and "more intimate" Xbox Fanfest at Gamescom 2016; more details will be shared closer to the convention.
Regardless, you can expect to play the following titles (though this is not a complete list) if you'll be attending.
- Gears of War 4
- Forza Horizon 3
- Halo Wars 2
- Sea of Thieves
- We Happy Few
By the way, the Xbox games will be in Hall 8 of the Koelnmess this year (near the north entrance).
Gamescom 2016 will be open at the following times. We'll have a full crew on site, so expect lots of coverage on the entire event.
- Wednesday, August 17 – 9:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. CEST (press/trade only day)
- Thursday, August 18 and Friday, August 19 – 10:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. CEST
- Saturday, August 20 – 9:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. CEST
- Sunday, August 21 – 9:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. CEST
