Gamescom 2021 schedule: Xbox press conferences, Geoff Keighley and more

Yes, E3 2021 is behind us, but the news about upcoming PC games never stops. Gamescom is nearing the end of August, and a variety of press conferences and special presentations are beginning to be announced for the show. We already knew about Geoff Keighley’s Opening Night Live show, but now Xbox and Future Games Show are joining the lineup.

Gamescom itself is fully digital this year and runs from Wednesday, August 25 to Friday, August 27. The show will be free and will be comprised of a variety of live streams on those days, including some focused on developers and businesses. For fans, there aren’t many details on what to expect from the main show, except that the Gamescom Studio and Awesome Indies performances will return in collaboration with IGN.

Expect more details on the rest of the show as we get closer to the start of Gamescom proper, but for now, there are three main shows confirmed for the schedule: Geoff Keighley’s Opening Night Live, Xbox Stream, and Future Games Show.

Check out the program below.

Aug 24: Destiny 2 Witch Queen Showcase

The presentation will feature “a new look at the next most important video games of this holiday and what lies beyond.”

More than 30 games will be presented at the fair. We don’t know much about what will be there, but the Splitgate developers are kidding some kind of advertisement. Time for that new 1.0 release date announcement?
