Microsoft has confirmed that it will hold an Xbox One Gamescom Showcase event on August 20th. The showcase will be hosted by corporate vice presidents Phil Spencer and Phil Harrison and will provide media “the opportunity to get hands-on with a range of Xbox One titles, speak with developers and be the first to hear our Gamescom news.”

This will mark Microsoft’s return to Gamescom after it skipped the show in 2012. Earlier this week, Microsoft’s Marc Whitten announced that independent devs can self-publish on Xbox One and confirmed that “more details on the program and the timeline” will be revealed at Gamescom.

Microsoft said back in May that Xbox One will have 15 exclusive games in its first year, not all of which have been announced. While nothing has been confirmed, Gamescom could be when we find out more.

Gamescom will run from August 21-25 in Cologne, Germany and both Nintendo and Sony will also attend. Be sure to check back to IGN in August for all the news from the show as it’s announced.
