The preparations for the Gamescom are continuing as planned

Gamescom is the largest gaming event in the world. In 2018, 370,000 visitors and 1037 exhibitors form 56 countries attended the show. In 2109, 373,000 people visited the event. Gamescom 2020 is scheduled to be held from the 25th till the 29th of August. The event is set to take place in Cologne, Germany.

Gamescom recently posted on Twitter that they are currently receiving enquiries about how a possible threat from the virus could affect the show. They are taking this topic very seriously since their top priority is the health of all trade fair visitors and partners.

Every major event in Cologne with more than one thousand participants has been banned. Preparations for the Gamescom are continuing as planned, according to the current status for the determined date. Should Gamescom be postponed or cancelled, all tickets purchased from the official shop will be refunded.
