Sony to Skip Gamescom for the Fifth Year in a Row

Why is Sony Skipping Gamescom 2024?

Sony has officially confirmed that PlayStation won’t be making an appearance at Gamescom 2024, marking the fifth consecutive year the company has skipped the gaming expo in Cologne, Germany. While this news may not come as a surprise, it still leaves fans wondering about Sony’s absence from the industry’s biggest event.

Since 2019, Sony has opted to host its showcases rather than participate in Gamescom. This decision aligns with the company’s strategy of controlling its messaging and announcements directly to the PlayStation fans. However, it also means missing out on the vibrant atmosphere and global reach of Gamescom.

Sony isn’t alone in skipping Gamescom this year. Nintendo has also confirmed that it won’t be appearing at the showcase. Despite these notable absences, plenty of other publishers, developers, and companies will be present and correct in August.

Gamescom 2022

Gamescom remains the proving ground for both smaller developers and industry giants. Geoff Keighley’s Opening Night Live ceremony sets the stage for major announcements, making it a sorely missed opportunity for Sony to engage with fans and reveal exciting content.

While fans eagerly await news about the rumored PS5 Pro, the lack of substantial game releases to showcase the console remains a challenge. Microsoft’s recent event demonstrated a strong lineup, leaving some wondering if Sony’s absence will be felt at Gamescom 2024.
