According to Gamescom organiser Koelnmesse, more than 370 exhibitors signed up for next month’s trade fair, which takes place in Cologne, Germany from August 15-19. Koelnmesse expects over 300 new products and game premieres at this year’s show, according to CVG.
Exhibitors include Sony, Blizzard, Bethesda, Capcom, EA, Konami, Namco Bandai, Take-Two, Ubisoft and Valve. However, big names like THQ, Sega, Microsoft and Nintendo are missing from the line-up, as we’ve previously reported.
Last year, a record 275,000 people visited GamesCom 2011, underlining its status “as the world’s largest trade fair for interactive entertainment.”
