Gamescom next as E3 nears the end

There’s only one day left of E3, but fear not – the next big games show is only two months away.

Gamescom will return to Cologne’s Koelnmesse on August 15th and runs until August 19th. And this time it will be even bigger – 140,000 square metres bigger to be precise.

"Gamescom is the world’s largest games show, with 276,000 visitors in 2011," said project manager Tim Endres.

"It is the only games show in the world to cover all different segments of gaming, from the strong basis of PC and console to online and browser gaming. And in 2011, we added mobile and social games.

"So only in Cologne can retailers, publishers and journalists get to see the whole world of the international gaming industry. And on even more space than last year – we’re adding another 140,000 square metres."

Endres also encouraged the games industry to begin preparing for the European show as soon as possible.

An international press conference will be held on Thursday, June 28th, providing information on exhibitors, program of the show and more. This will be livestreamed at
