Interestingly, Microsoft could also reveal new Xbox hardware and accessories at the conference. However, we're getting a look at something Xbox hardware related much sooner. It's reportedly being developed under the codename of Scarlett, and may be a family of devices rather than just a new console.

Microsoft is of course working on new Xbox hardware, mind, but there never really was any chance it'd show up at Gamescom.

The tease comes from a Major Nelson blog post detailing the company's Gamescom plans.

You can find out for yourself by tuning into Microosft's Twitch, Facebook, Twitter, Mixer or YouTube channels from 3.30pm BST on August 21.

Similar to the Xbox One X, this would ensure it supports new games and existing Xbox One games.

Even though Microsoft is no longer revealing how many consoles it sells every quarter, 2018 is already looking to be a great year for Xbox sales according to analysts.

Like previous years, Microsoft will be present with its Xbox booth at which players will be able to try out the upcoming Forza Horizon 4, State of Decay 2's upcoming Daybreak Pack, and Ori and the Will of the Wisps.

Lastly, Microsoft announced a handful of games that will be present on the show floor at their booth space.

Finally, Microsoft says that a new Xbox-exclusive mode for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds will be playable for the first time at Gamescom, so that'll definitely be something to keep an eye on. And although there's the mention of "a few surprises" it's unclear whether they'll announce any major new AAA games.
