The Twitter account for gamescom has officially announced that the huge gaming convention will be moving to a digital event due to the coronovirus pandemic.
This shouldn’t be that big of a surprise as most events with more than 50 people are getting cancelled. However, the convention was probably trying to hold out as long as they can as they hoped for the situation to change.
Similar to E3 2020, gamescom will be changing its tactics and will be moving to a digital event for its attendees. There is no word on what will consist in this digital event, but we can expect it to be similar to whatever happens at E3 2020.
