Xbox And Blizzard Have Confirmed Their Gamescom 2024 Attendance

With the "biggest booth yet"

Xbox, along with one of its high-profiled owned studios, Blizzard, has confirmed it’ll be in attendance at Gamescom 2024, following the news that neither Nintendo or PlayStation will be at the show.

The company revealed the news via a post on X (formerly Twitter), confirming that it’ll be bringing its “biggest booth yet” to this year’s event, which runs from August 21st to August 25th.

Attendees can expect to see Age of Mythology: Retold, Avowed, Ara: History Untold, Diablo IV: Vessel of Hatred, Diablo Immortal, The Elder Scrolls Online, Fallout 76, Towerborne and World of Warcraft: The War Within, though more titles are reportedly to come.

Blizzard Entertainment says it will have “a robust footprint” alongside other Xbox studios in the Xbox booth.

“We are incredibly excited to bring Warcraft, Diablo, and Overwatch to our European community at gamescom,” said Johanna Faries, President of Blizzard Entertainment, in a statement.

“It’s wonderful to be able to travel to Cologne alongside some of our talented developers so that we can gather with players and celebrate the special connections that continue to be forged within our universes together.”

German website “Games Wirtschaft” reported a statement recently from Sony Interactive Entertainment confirming that it has no plans to exhibit at this year’s event, effectively ruling PlayStation out of the picture unless it decides to take part in some other way (a sponsorship or some other marketing activity around the event). The company simply said, “Sony Interactive currently has no plans to exhibit at Gamescom 2024.”

Nintendo had also already confirmed it won’t be at the event for 2024, despite having just shown off a pretty exciting slate of games for the coming months. Xbox hasn’t made any confirmations yet, but the company usually has a pretty big presence at Gamescom so it would make sense for that to continue.

Last year’s Opening Night Live showcase wasn’t a huge show for brand-new-announcements but did bring some pretty exciting looks at then-upcoming titles like Starfield, Alan Wake 2, Assassin’s Creed Mirage, Tekken 8 and Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty to name a few.
