Gamescom 2021 is announced as an all-digital event.
Gamescom 2021 Confirmed As All-Digital Event
Previously Gamescom 2021 was announced as a hybrid event but has now changed its stance to become an all-digital event by organisers Koelmesse and the German Games Industry Association which was announced today.
The decision was made after discussions with partners and exhibitors which concluded with many companies unable to participate in physical events this year. This led to the outcome of an only digital event for 2021.
Gamescom 2021 will start with “Gamescom: Opening Night Live” with usual host Geoff Keighley on August 25th, which will be followed up with two days of the event from August 26th to 27th. The “Gamescom Now” hub will be redone with “numerous” additional features for both users and partners. A community campaign is also in the works called “Gamescom Epix”, which will allows fans to “playfully immerse themselves in the Gamescom universe on the road to Gamescom”.
