Gamescom 2020 ‘Physical Event’ Officially Cancelled, Moving to Digital Online Event

The organisers of Gamescom 2020 have officially confirmed that the event has been cancelled and will not take place this year which sadly comes as no surprise and follows on from E3 2020 being cancelled.

The official statement, released via their Twitter account reads:

It is going to feel very strange indeed as we head into a brand new console generation launch at the end of this year with the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, not to have any big events such as E3 and Gamescom to look forward for reveals and news. This may also put more pressure on EGX 2020, which was only recently confirmed to take place in September this year but could possibly also now be cancelled like other events. Will have to wait and see how that develops going forward.

Digital events seem to be the way forward now and Xbox have already confirmed they will have online events leading up to the release of the Xbox Series X this year and no doubt others including Sony PlayStation and Nintendo will do the same.
