Games and Rumors

This year, Gamescom should move a lot of games that weren’t ready to be shown at Summer Game Fest, in June. Microsoft guarantees, however, that it will take Game updates already announced for the Xbox ecosystem and coming in the coming months. That should rule out the presence of big titles like Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2, for example.

On the other hand, several titles have already been confirmed by Geoff Keighley himself in advance, including: Sonic Frontiers, Hogwarts Legacy, The Callisto Protocol, The Outlast Trials, Gotham Knights, Honkai Star Rail, Goat Simulator 3, High on Life, The Expanse: Telltase Series and Return to Monkey Island.

One of the surprises in store for the event is likely the resurgence of Dead Island 2, according to an Amazon leak. After more than a decade, the game could be about to receive not only new gameplay details, but also a supposed release date of February 3, 2023.
