Interestingly, the company initially described the stream as featuring 'all-new Xbox hardware' in the post, although quickly edited the blurb presumably because people were losing their shit and expecting a new Xbox console. After all, it was just last month at E3 2018 that Phil Spencer revealed that the Xbox team is hard at work making the next generation of Xbox-branded consoles.
The tease comes from a Major Nelson blog post detailing the company's Gamescom plans. Gone is the reference to "all-new Xbox hardware and accessories", and in its place is a promise of "new Xbox One bundles and accessories".
Microsoft Revealing New Xbox Hardware on August 21
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. We'll just have to tune in to the live show at 4:30 PM CEST on Tuesday, August 21 to find out.
Xbox FanFest will return to Gamescom on August 23. A new Xbox Elite controller has been rumored for some time, and the availability of the current iteration has been spotty recently.
