After skipping last year’s Gamescom, Microsoft is returning to the event this year and the company is rumored to be hosting a full conference reiterating the Xbox One’s core message; while attempting to secure a better position in European territories. While the Xbox 360 may have overtaken the Wii U in sales in some parts of the UK, the system has been less successful than Sony’s Playstation 3 in other European markets.

According to CVG, some developers have been notified about the hour long press conference, but no official date or running order has been confirmed.

2013 may be the first year Microsoft will host a full blown event during the European convention. Gamescom runs August 21st through August 25th in Cologne, Germany.
