Gamescom 2022: Sony will not participate
Sony Interactive has confirmed its plans to the German site games economy. The article, translated by Google, points out that too PlayStation will not show anything at Gamescom, since participation in this showcase is linked to presence at the physical fair. We therefore do not know when and if we will have the opportunity to see something on God of War Ragnarok given that, in theory, the title should be released by the end of the year.
So far the organizers of GamesCom have not disclosed the list of exhibitorsbut the entire exhibition center and all connected pavilions have been reserved for use.
This year’s Gamescom will be held in the form of hybrid event, both in presence and digitally, after two years of entirely digital events due to restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Keighley’s Opening Night Live stream will mark the start of the event as usual. Keighley started an annual event for early summer called Summer Game Fest Live: this means that the two events together close the season.
However, many publishers did not officially participate in the Summer Game Fest Live. Some, like Xbox, have chosen to keep their own individual showcase, similar to the traditional E3 press conference. Others, like Sony and Nintendo, haven’t announced anything yet. Sony held a recent State of Play for third-party titles, while Nintendo is planning a Nintendo Direct this week which will focus on one of its main fall releases, Xenoblade Chronicles 3.
