After cancelling the on-site event for Gamescom 2020 due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, Koelnmesse and Game – The German Games Industry Association confirmed that an online event would still take place. It recently announced “The Heart of Gaming” which will take place on August 27th to 30th. Gamescom Now, which launched last year, will be the “first go-to source” for world premieres, announcements and other news.

There’s also Gamescom: Opening Night Live hosted by Geoff Keighley, which will now take place on August 27th. It will still serve to kick of the three-day event though. A new addition to the line-up is Gamescom: Awesome Indies which will discuss announcement surrounding the hottest indie titles.

Gamescom: Daily Show will also take place, offering highlights and promotions from companies and partners. You can also expect interviews from various developers and the Gamescom: Best of Show, the latter taking place on August 30th and offering some highlights along with the Gamescom award.

Game managing director Felix Falk stated that, “This year, all our energies for Gamescom 2020 is going into digital. In a short amount of time and working in close tandem with some of the world’s most important gaming companies on the Gamescom advisory board, we have been able to develop a powerful and focused concept for Gamescom 2020. We are anticipating surprising shows, numerous world premieres, announcements, and special promotions that will set the entire games world all abuzz about gamescom at the end of August.”

It’s certainly ambitious all things considered and we can’t wait to see how it pans out. Stay tuned for more details in the coming months.
