Microsoft is teasing new Xbox hardware to be shown off at Gamescom in Germany, next month.

According to the official blog, “This year at Gamescom, we will be hosting a special episode of Inside Xbox, broadcast live from our Xbox booth in the Koelnmesse.

“Tune in on Tuesday, August 21, at 4:30 p.m. CEST (7:30 a.m. PDT) for lots of news, all-new Xbox hardware and accessories, and features on upcoming titles that we can’t wait to tell you more about and perhaps even a few surprises!”

New hardware, you say? It’s unlikely to be a successor to the Xbox One, but it could well be a new model following the Xbox One S and the Xbox One X.

If you want to be really sensible, you could expect it to be the revamped Xbox Elite Controller, which leaked earlier in the year.

The Xbox One Elite Controller was originally revealed way back in 2015 and released in October, with supplies limited throughout the year.

As well as new hardware, MS is promising a fresh look at new titles. One of those is Forza Horizon 4, but there’s no mention of Crackdown 3 in the blog post.

Microsoft is promising 25 games at the Gamescom booth this year, including a look at State of Decay 2’s Daybreak Pack, due for release in September.

Fanfest will also be returning to Gamescom this year, taking place on the Rhein, ewith more details to be announced.
