Gamescom 2021 will be an all-digital event for the second year running after its organisers abandoned plans to stage a hybrid show combining digital elements with on-site events due to restrictions around the Covid-19 pandemic.
Gamescom will officially kick off with a two-hour Opening Night Live showcase on August 25, with the main event days to follow on August 26 and 27.
