    For those who don't know, Gamescom is an event similar to E3 where developers showcase their new video games. The event takes place in Cologne, Germany on August 18-21. A link to their website will be available below. Please note that tickets are currently sold out if you were planning on attending.

    Bandai Namco will be presenting three different titles at this year's Gamescom. PS4Germany recently tweeted out that their titles will be Tekken 7, Xenoverse 2, and a new IP. Could this IP be the game we all know and love? We'll find out as time goes on.

      Ok ok, I dare raise on eyebrow at this avalanche of news.


      But doesn't "new" IP mean a completely new game/series?

      Edit: also, as stated on the Gamescom website, Bandai Namco games will be "Action/Adventure" and "Jump and Run"... Not our game, sorry!

      Ha sorry but unless PS4Germany were wrong, a new IP is a new IP, not an existing one.
      Definitely not Soul Calibur.

      New IP can often imply new series, but does not actually mean that. It could very well be SC or anything else for that matter.

      @JohnMcKee fighting game isn't a category on their site. They're showing T7 too which is the same genre as SC, but that genre happens to not exist hence why it is not on Namco's exhibitor info. T7 = Action/Adventure and so would SC if it happens to be there.

      That has nothing to do with Soul Calibur series.

      Maybe. Maybe not.
      Can't be a new SoulCalibur....

      Ok, my bad then ^^

      Yet the term "new IP" shouldn't be concerning an existing series, so it'd be a miracle if it were to concern Soulcalibur.

      Soul Edge would be considered a new IP?
    11. JohnMcKee
      Nope, as it already exists :(

      To reiterate, new IP does not mean new series. It just means new IP.

      What does "a new IP" mean ?

      I guess it's a new game. SC6 would be great (finally !).

      Well, if it says NEW IP.... I don't think it would be SC... But let's hope. Let's just hope.

      New IP means new Intellectual Property, therefore something that has not previously been registered, Soulcalibur is a registered series, for example Tekken 7 isn't a new IP, it's a new game in the series, in an old IP.

      A new IP isn't a new game within a known series, it's a new previously unseen game or series.

      I still have fingers crossed for comic-con.

      Soulcalibur would already be registered, but say, "Soulcalibur 6" or "Tekken 8" would not be registered yet. Like I said, a new IP is just a new IP.
    19. JohnMcKee
      Unfortunately, it doesn't work that way: Soulcalibur and Tekken are registered, but SCV and T7 aren't because they are part of the same IPs. You can search on TESS, only "Soulcalibur" and "Tekken" appear, not each respective number.

      IP means either a single game (Heavy Rain, Until Down, etc.) or a series embracing every game within the series (Final Fantasy, Pokémon, Soulcalibur, etc.). A new IP is not and cannot be a sequel.

      However, if the game is followed by a new denomination (for example, an expansion for WoW, or our """beloved""" Lost Swords) it will need a new registration... But I don't know whether it falls under the term "IP" or not, because only the denomination is newly registered, not the base game itself...

      So either we might get a "Soulcalibur: Dying Franchise", or something totally unrelated to the Soul series, but if the term IP is accurately used, it won't be Soulcalibur VI for sure.
