Blizzard isn’t going to Gamescom this year
It’s the biggest show of the year, but Blizzard says it’s focusing on other things.
Gamescom is the biggest video game show in the world. It drew 370,000 visitors in 2018, compared to just over 69,000 for E3.
It’s open to the public while E3 is, technically at least, mainly an industry-only event.
It is obviously a big factor in that difference, but even so there’s no denying that it’s major international event.
Despite that, Blizzard has decided to skip it this year.
As part of a renewed effort this year to maintain our focus on development, for our current games and our future projects, we won’t have a booth at Gamescom 2019, Blizzard announced today.
“The show is an important one for the European and global gaming community, and we’re going to miss meeting players in Cologne this year.
