The eleventh edition of Gamescom, to be held once again in Cologne, is expected by many with trepidation, especially after the record participation last year: many 370.000 visitors and over a thousand exhibitors. In the 2019 edition, however, a big name will be missing: that of Blizzard.
The news is the same company, with a statement which talks about the need to work hard on project development currently in the pipeline. Moreover, Blizzard had already anticipated in February not to have large release scheduled for the 2019, on the occasion of mass layoffs, and this too was a probable disincentive to undertake the journey across the Atlantic. To wait more details from Blizzard, we will probably have to wait for BlizzCon.
The Gamescom will be held in the city of Cologne by 21 24 to August 2019
