In other news, Respawn recently talked about how Titanfall 2 is pushing things forward when it comes to matchmaking.

"We're changing a lot of our matchmaking systems so you can find better games quicker," producer Drew McCoy said. "We've added this awesome new thing called Networks that lets you make groups of friends and play together a lot easier."

As for Gamescom, it runs August 17-21 in Cologne, Germany. Unlike previous years, there are no briefings scheduled from any platform-holders or publishers. Keep checking back with GameSpot for more on Gamescom in the days ahead.
