Gamescom 2019 schedule - stream times

Tonight's the night where the bulk of the Gamescom 2019 news will be happening. These streams, which we now have all the links for, will be showcasing many unannounced games and updates to ones we know about. The main show to watch will be Gamescom Opening Night Live, but there are also separate streams for both Google Stadia and Inside Xbox. We've put together a list of the streams, times for each one, and links to where to watch them.

  • Stream times: 19:00 BST/20:00 CEST/14:00 EDT/11:00 PDT
  • Where to watch: YouTube/Twitch/Mixer

This is the briefing where most of the announcements will be happening this year during the Gamescom 2019 schedule. If there is one stream that you'll want to be watching, it's likely going to be this one.

The presentation will feature all sorts of publishers, including 2K, Activision, Bandai Namco Entertainment, Bungie, Capcom, Electronic Arts, Epic Games, Koch Media/Deep Silver, Private Division, Sega, Square Enix, THQ Nordic, Ubisoft, and Xbox Game Studios, among many others.

Currently, there's no indication of how long this will be, but it's probably going to go over an hour with all those publishers taking the stage at some point.

Google Stadia Connect - Gamescom 2019 schedule

  • Stream date: Monday 19th August 2019
  • Stream times: 18:00 BST/19:00 CEST/13:00 EDT/10:00 PDT
  • Where to watch: YouTube

After the showing at E3 2019 for Google Stadia, there are still a lot of questions about the games that will be available for the platform. With only one fully exclusive game - Gylt, and a host of older or already announced games, there doesn't seem to be a lot "new".

Google Stadia Connect at Gamescom 2019 will, therefore, be a rather crucial showing for the future of Stadia. Will it entice us to subscribe to Stadia Pro? Can Google alleviate the concerns people have about streaming games?

Inside Xbox - Gamescom 2019 schedule

  • Stream date: Monday 19th August 2019
  • Stream times: 16:00 BST/17:00 CEST/11:00 EDT/08:00 PDT
  • Where to watch: Mixer

Microsoft is also streaming their regular Inside Xbox show on Mixer around an hour before the Google Stadia Connect stream.

Microsoft will likely be showing off the likes of Gears 5, which releases not too long after the conclusion of Gamescom 2019.  There were also plenty of games announced during E3 2019.

Expect to see the some details from some of the following games at the show: Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition, Bleeding Edge, Halo: Infinite,  Halo: The Master Chief Collection PC, Microsoft Flight Simulator, Minecraft Dungeons, Ori and the Will of the Wisps, The Outer Worlds, and at least some of the ID@Xbox stuff.
