"With this, the purely digital gamescom with its shows and innovations underlines its great value for the industry and the worldwide gaming community. Together with already confirmed and continuously joining partners, we will continue to bring an exciting and eventful program to millions of gaming fans worldwide in 2021."

Here is the list of partners that have been confirmed:

So Sony is skipping out on this one too?! What the hell is going on with them? Do they have nothing to show or something? I hope this isn't some sort of precedent set for the long run. This could turn around and bite them. Please have an event in the near future. A good one with upcoming games we haven't heard about.
