We are actually very excited about what Deep Silver and Xbox Game Studios are about to showcase. It’s been long since Dying Light 2 got announced and it’ll take some time before the game officially launches, so seeing brand new things around it would be pretty nice. As for Xbox Game Studios, they’ve been cooking up things secretly for the past few years now and with very few exclusives that did well for Xbox One, they’re definitely looking to ramp it up for the upcoming Console Generation.
So what are the new things at Gamescom that you’re expecting? Help us speculate on what are the upcoming announcements that we’ll get at this year’s Gamescom. Let us know in the comment section below!
