Microsoft gives the lowdown on their Gamescom 2015 lineup

E3 2015 has come and gone, of course that just means that companies are gearing up for their next game show apperance which just happens to be Gamescom 2015. Microsoft, being no stranger to the game has already announced their Gamescom 2015 line-up which includes games such as Scalebound, Quantum Break, Halo 5: Guardians, Forza Motorsport 6, Rise of the Tomb Raider and Crackdown. Oddly enough several of those titles were supposed to make a showing at E3 2015 but were pulled at the last moment. Whatever polish MS wanted to get done should be good to go now as they have been confirmed to make an appearance.
