PlayStation revealed it in an interview with the German publication Games Wirtschaft.
Unfortunately, this means that you can officially write off big hits like god of war ragnarok, Forspoken, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Y PSVR two.
As Games Wirtschaft points out, this also confirms that PlayStation will not appear in gamescom by Geoff Keighley: Opening Night Live.
This news officially eliminates two of the three big console manufacturers from the event gamescom this year, since Nintendo it has also been publicly withdrawn.
Activision Blizzard, the publisher behind Call of Duty, Overwatch, Warcraft Y Devil, will not attend either.
Although the list of no-shows of gamescom high-profile continues to grow, there are still 250 confirmed exhibitors, including some big names like BandaiNamco, THQNordic Y Koch Media.
It is also expected that Xbox have some sort of presence at the event, but it’s unclear in what capacity.
Gamescom 2022 will be a live, in-person show for the first time since 2019, but there will also be an “extensive digital program” accompanying it, according to event organizers.
It’s not clear what the online procedures will entail, but you can expect Gamescom Opening Night Live return for the third year in a row to kick off the big event in person.
The live event starts in Cologne and lasts for three days, from August 24 to 28, 2022.
