THQ Nordic will also be announcing a new IP and “a new installment of a well-known, mysterious and horrific IP.” It’s unclear if these two games will be on Switch, however.

Gamescom 2016 is still underway, but next year’s expo has already been dated. The show will take place between August 22, 2017 and August 26, 2017.

Next year’s Gamescom will be a tad different. For the first time, it will take place between Tuesday and Saturday (first day is for trade visitors and the media like usual). In other words, everything is bumped up a day early in 2017. It’s also in place from here on out to have Gamescom staged during the last full week of August.
