After speaking to a representative at PlayStation France, Jeux Video affirms that Sony will not hold a press conference at this year’s Gamescom. The representative told the website that “there will be no PlayStation conference at Gamescom”.
This will be the second year in a row Sony skips on holding a press conference at the event. Last year, the European conference was held at Paris Games Week where they unveiled Detroit: Become Human and more. The reason for the change was due to the immediacy of E3 and Gamescom’s event schedules.
Sony will not be the only company avoiding a press conference at the event. Yesterday, Microsoft has also confirmed that they will not be holding a conference as well.
Gamescom is being held in Cologne, Germany and begins on August 17
