gamescom asia – Event Postponement FAQs

Updated on 10 June 2020

Why have you decided to postpone gamescom asia 2020?

Following guidance from the Singapore government on the feasibility of large-scale events, and in view of travel restrictions not being lifted in the foreseeable future, we have decided to postpone gamescom asia 2020. The safety and well-being of all our stakeholders is of top priority to us. As this is an inaugural event, it is important for us to give the gaming community and fans the full experience of what a Tier 1 event for the region would be. We do not want to give our attendees anything less. Hence, after a long and careful deliberation with our stakeholders, we have decided to postpone the inaugural edition of gamescom asia to 14 – 17 October 2021.
