The organizers of Gamescom can not decide whether the event will be digital, physical or a combination, but now we know how it will be.
At first, it was thought that this year’s Gamescom would be a type of “hybrid event” that combines both digital and physical events, but this will not be the case.
Since we still have an ongoing pandemic and vaccinations are relatively slow, Gamescom has now decided to run this year’s event completely digitally instead. Just like last year, we can probably count on a lot of games, news and surprises.
Geoff Keighley will hold the opening of the event where many viewers are drawn. Gamescom 2021 will run from 25 to 27 August.
Organizers behind Gamescom’s statement that it will be completely digital:
“This decision was made after extensive discussions with partners and exhibitors. Thus, the organizers take into account the current situation, in which too many companies are unable to participate in physical events this year due to the still difficult development. In this way, they also meet the partners’ strong need for planning security. ”
