Microsoft confirms it's coming to Gamescom with new Xbox One bundles

Xbox to Announce New Hardware at Gamescom

Even though it feels like E3 2018 just ended, we'll soon be onto our next big gaming conference of the year: Gamescom.

Major Nelson actually made headlines this afternoon by stating that Microsoft would show off "all-new Xbox hardware and accessories" during a special episode of Inside Xbox during Gamescom. It's reportedly being developed under the codename of Scarlett, and may be a family of devices rather than just a new console.

That doesn't mean the new hardware won't be interesting though, as rumours suggest the new accessories may include the Xbox Elite 2 controller - whose existence was leaked some time ago.

For more information about Microsoft's 2018 Gamescom presence, check out the official post on the Xbox Wire right here.

The Xbox One first launched in November 2013, and has gone through several models, including the Xbox One S with support for 4K video playback and upscaling games from 1080p to 4K.

Fanfest will also be returning to Gamescom this year, taking place on the Rhein, with more details to be announced.

New hardware, you say?

Lastly, Microsoft announced a handful of games that will be present on the show floor at their booth space. We'll find out on August 21, at 4:30 PM CEST (7:30 AM PDT / 10:30 AM EST). One of those is Forza Horizon 4, but there's no mention of Crackdown 3 in the blog post. A new Xbox Elite controller has been rumored for some time, and the availability of the current iteration has been spotty recently. Gamescom kicks off on Tuesday, August 21, and we'll be covering the major announcements from it as they happen here at SlashGear, so stay tuned.
