The new Xbox console will be showcased at Gamescom 2013 this August.
The confirmation did not come via a press release but was instead issued by Xbox EMEA’s social marketing manager Graeme Boyd on Twitter.
“Xbox will be back at Gamescom this August,” he wrote. “‘Next chapter of Xbox gaming experiences’ on show. Can't wait, LOVE Gamescom.”
It marks a return to the event for Microsoft, which has for years been decreasing its presence at the annual European trade show.
And with the New Xbox being shown off for the first time on May 21st, you can expect plenty of next-gen excitement from Microsoft in Cologne.
