Sony has reportedly decided not to participate in this year’s gamescom.
That’s according to German publication GamesMarkt (via VGC), which states that the PlayStation won’t be in showrooms.
The last gamescom Sony attended was in 2019 before COVID-19 hit the world.
Due to COVID, the Gamescom 2020 show moved to an online format and changed to a hybrid event in 2021 and 2022.
This year will be the fourth opening night presentation handled and moderated by Geoff Keighley. It will be held on August 22.
While Sony may not be at the event, Nintendo will be in attendance, along with many other developers and publishers such as Bandai Namco, Giant’s Software, and Team17.
This year’s gamescom will be held in Cologne, Germany from August 23rd to 27th.
