Germany Extends Ban on Major Gatherings so Gamescom Will be Digital

Gamescom is one of the few gaming events that hasn’t been canceled, and recently it has been said that it will happen at least digitally if there is no other option.

Well, there officially is no other option at the table since Germany has decided to extend the ban on major public gatherings until August 31 according to dpa, a German Press Agency. Gamescom is planned for August 25 to 29.

On the official Twitter account, Gamescom says that this will affect the planning of the event but that it will definitely happen digitally.

Even though not all details are known at present, the nationwide ban on major events until the end of August will also affect the planning for #gamescom2020. Furthermore: gamescom 2020 will definitely take place digitally! We will provide further information shortly,” reads the tweet.
