How to watch Xbox’s Gamescom 2021 stream

Get the latest on Xbox games coming this year

Microsoft is (virtually) heading to Germany’s Gamescom gaming expo with a digital showcase on Tuesday, Aug. 24 to discuss all things Xbox. The Gamescom 2021 Xbox Stream will kick off at 1 p.m. EDT/10 a.m. PDT, and will run approximately 90 minutes. You can watch it live right here via YouTube, or on Twitch, Facebook, and Twitter.

Viewers can expect updates on games coming to Xbox and Game Pass — particularly “game updates coming this year,” according to general manager of Xbox Games Marketing Aaron Greenberg. Don’t expect major new reveals or big surprises, but a “fun stream,” Greenberg said.

Games coming this year to Xbox and Windows PC include 343 Industries’ Halo Infinite, which still does not have a confirmed release date; Age of Empires 4, which comes to PC in October; Forza Horizon 5, which hits Xbox consoles and Windows PC in November; and CrossfireX, which was originally slated for 2020, but is also undated. There’s plenty more on the horizon (Avowed, Perfect Dark, Fable, Everwild, Forza Motorsport, State of Decay 3), but many of those projects appear far off in the future. Xbox faithful may instead want to look forward to updates for games like Minecraft, Microsoft Flight Simulator, and Sea of Thieves, for now.
