With the pandemic currently ongoing and social distancing being enforced to prevent the spread of COVID-19 many public events have been canceled or switched to all digital events. Now, Gamescom 2020 has been added to that list.

Germany, where the event is held, issued a statement that they will be canceling large events until the end of August due to the outbreak. Which many assumed meant Gamescom 2020 would be canceled. Now it’s official.

An all-digital event has been confirmed for the same period that the on-site event was scheduled for.
