Gamescom 2019 - Games Shortlist

With just over a week left before gamescom 2019, we have prepared for you an extensive list of the most important games that will be presented during the event. Among them, there are both potential hits from big publishers and interesting independent games.

Unlike the E3, where previously unknown games lead the way, gamescom is a feast mainly for titles that players already been heard of. However, also in Cologne, developers and publishers put their carefully hidden cards on the table, presenting games that were previously kept under lock and key. Since there are many titles that will be on display at the German trade fair, we have prepared a comprehensive summary of the most important titles. Of course, we still do not know about many things, so with time, the list will be updated (as the exhibitors reveal the so-called "line-ups").

While the E3 fair is largely an event for the chosen, gamescom can be visited by everyone with a bit of luck.

2K Games

  1. Borderlands 3;
  2. NBA 2K20.

It is currently unclear whether WWE 2K20 will be among the games shown in Cologne by 2K Games.
