The digital E3 2021 is over, slowly but surely the also purely digital gamescom 2021 is casting its shadow. The first participants have now been confirmed!
The organizers of gamescom have announced further information on the upcoming gaming event and have also confirmed participants in this context. Gamescom 2021 will therefore take place completely virtually from August 25th to 27th, 2021; then you will see numerous upcoming titles from well-known studios and publishers.
19 companies have now been officially confirmed for gamescom. Above all, the industry heavyweights Microsoft, Activision, Ubisoft and Electronic Arts should be mentioned in this context. For example, you will get fresh impressions of upcoming Xbox exclusives from Microsoft’s first-party studios.
Other confirmed participants are, for example, Bandai Namco, Bethesda, Koch Media, 505 Games, SEGA Europe Team17, Aerosoft and more. You can see: Sony is not among them and it is unlikely that the PlayStation makers will jump on the gamescom bandwagon. The Japanese from Nintendo are not among the participants either, they had also announced their direct conference on the occasion of E3 this year too late, so that there should still be hope for news on the occasion of gamescon in this regard.
Many more details about gamescom 2021 are still to be announced, but this time again there will be gamescom: Opening Night Live with Geoff Keighley as the opening show. The biggest highlights of the fair should then be presented here.
