GamesCom 2021 Game Predictions
Since GamesCom 2021 is expected to be a big show for the year, fans have been wondering which games will be making an appearance and if some rumored titles will finally be revealed.
We're here to join in on the fun and predict which games could be making an appearance in GamesCom 2021.
Call of Duty Vanguard
The long-rumored 2021 Call of Duty entry has to be revealed eventually and we figure GamesCom would be a good place, especially since E3 and The Game Awards are now done.
Considering how we've gone this long without a trailer, it's about time that the 2021 Call of Duty shows itself and gets fans excited.
New Tom Clancy Game
Ubisoft recently stated that they would be revealing a new Tom Clancy game soon, which appears to be another multiplayer shooter, so GamesCom might be an appropriate place to show off more gameplay for it.
How it relates to the other Tom Clancy games remains to be seen and we're interested to see if it leaves an impression on fans considering the number of multiplayer shooters already available.
Now that Bethesda has revealed Starfield as a 2022 game exclusive to Xbox Series X, we wouldn't be surprised if they showed it off a little more during a quick GamesCom presentation.
We doubt that there's going to be big release date news during the show but there's already a release window for next year and that should be enough for fans, at least for now.
That’s everything we know right now but expect more information to come out in the coming weeks.
