The first 15 teased are as follows:

  • 2K
  • Activision
  • Bandai Namco
  • Bungie
  • Capcom
  • EA
  • Epic Games
  • Stadia
  • Deep Silver
  • Private Division

  • Square Enix
  • Sony

  • Ubisoft
  • Xbox Game Studios

Of the many announcements, one has been confirmed: Death Stranding. Keighly’s good friend Hideo Kojima will be showing a new preview of the game with a man that dies every 21 minutes.

gamescom begins on August 20th and will open its doors to the public on August 21st-24th.
