Gamescom 2021 schedule – press conferences from Xbox, Geoff Keighley and more


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

Gamescom itself is fully digital this year and will run from Wednesday August 25 through Friday August 27. The show will be free and consist of a variety of live broadcasts during these days, some of which focus 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 presentations 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, three major shows are confirmed for the program: Opening Night Live by Geoff Keighley, the Xbox Stream and the Future Games Show.
