Looks like more and more game developers are taking this year’s Gamescom very seriously, as Square Enix announced a very large line up to showcase to the public. Gamescom will run from August 21 to 25 in Cologne, Germany and will be seeing a number of demos, presentations, and much more from Square Enix, who has just come from a strong showing at this year’s E3.

Here is Square Enix’s line up below.

  • Deus Ex: The Fall (iOS, Android) – playable kiosks
  • Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster (PS3, PSV) – playable kiosks, presentations

  • Murdered: Soul Suspect (PC, PS3, 360) – presentations
  • Thief (PC, PS3, 360, PS4, XBO) – presentations

While an impressive showing, in a press release Sqaure Enix has promised that there will be much more. In this press release they have stated that “additional titles such as upcoming highlights Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts III will be presented as part of the trailer shows that form part of the scheduled stage shows.”

Gamescom will be available for the public to experience in Hall 9 of the Koelnmesse in Cologne, Germany. This European game convention will be running from August 21 to 25, with large video game giants that will include Nintendo, Sony, and even Microsoft making an appearance.

    Maybe we’ll finally get some dates for FFX/X-2.

      exactly what i was thinking but something has been bought to my attention. The absence of Bravely Default…I guess we wont be hearing about that game until mid/late 2014.

    • Space Walrus

      That’s because Bravely Default is actually being published by Nintendo in North America and Europe. So any information about Bravely Default will probably come from Nintendo via a Nintendo Direct video.

    • grego

      Good point.

  • Dimitri Theodosakis

    For me following announcements i hope

    * Trailer for FF X/X-2 Ends with Worldwide Release Date along with Day 1 Digital.
    * Launch Trailer for FF 14 2.0 Ends with Day 1 Digital for PS3.
    * Sneaky Trailer of English Dub trailer for FF 15 ends with 2014 Worldwide Release.
