Nationwide Ban On Major Events Suffocates Gamescom 2020

Gamescom, the trade fair for video games held in Germany, will probably be postponed due to the devastating virus mantle that covered the whole world. This was announced today on their official Twitter profile, stating that following the German government announcement to prohibit large events until the end of August.

Therefore, Gamescom has announced that COVID-19 is indeed the reason for a possible cancelation, similar to many other significant events coming from the gaming industry. With each year of over 370,000 people visiting the expo, Gamescom is still planning to endure its existence on August 25.

The current roadblock, which is the presence of the COVID-19 and its destructive impact on the whole planet, may postpone it to an even later date or, as the organizer stated, become a digital event for 2020. Let’s hope that won’t be a reason, as our team has been preparing to join Gamescom for the first time in our history.

Despite the analytics of possible access, Gamescom organizers are pushed to follow the government’s path and take action on whether or not Gamescom will be held.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
