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.
