THQ Nordic, Deep Silver and Bandai Namco to Unveil New Games at Gamescom 2018

A press release reveals that THQ Nordic, Deep Silver, and Bandai Namco are all going to be debuting new, unannounced games at Gamescom 2018.

THQ Nordic is planning to “introduce a previously unannounced title based on one of the publisher’s established brands.” We do not have other details at this stage.

Likewise, “game fans from around the world can expect a new announcement from Koch Media and its publishing label Deep Silver.” While the press release goes on to say “BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe S.A.S. is using the gamescom opening ceremony as an opportunity to announce a brand new game from a European developer“.

In addition to the new releases, the event will also premier the first trailer for Life is Strange 2. While that game will not be available to play publicly, some of the aforementioned new releases may be available on the show floor mere minutes after their debut.

“Some of these newly announced titles will be available to play at the publishers’ booths in the entertainment area directly following the presentation. If you want to catch every debut as it happens, you can watch the entire gamescom opening ceremony on www.gamescom.global.”
