However, they also state that Square Enix have announced the game for both PS4 and Xbox One (which isn’t something we were aware of) and that the PlayStation 4 version will have “early access”.

EB Games Australia has likely confirmed that the “Final Fantasy VII Remake”, will be released for the Xbox One consoles next year. Square Enix’s 1,100-square meter booth on the show floor will include more than 200 game stations, on which attendees can play some of the company’s upcoming games.

Gamescom will be the first time Avalanche’s open-world title Just Cause 3 will be playable for the public ahead of its release in December.

This looks like it’s going to be a good convention for Square Enix fans. Final Fantasy XV: Episode Duscae 2.0, the second part of the game’s demo, will also appear. Guests will feature in a number of stage presentations, promising a number of new insights into the upcoming and highly anticipated game. Christian Today reported that it will most likely be playable with Xbox One at some point as EB Games Australia assured a fan through Facebook which assured that though it was announced to be released for PS4, it will be made compatible with the existing Microsoft console.

These presentations will focus on Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and the new Hitman title revealed at E3.

Sony will not be present at Gamescom this year, but have announcements lined up for Paris Games Week in October.

Gamescom, the largest video gaming event in Europe, will take place in Cologne, Germany on August 5-8.
