Sony will be not showcasing at the upcoming Gamescom 2024, as confirmed by Eurogamer, reported first by Games Wirtschaft. This makes it five years since Sony showed up at a Gamescom, back in 2019.

Even though it’s not the most surprising decision, it still comes as a disappointment for those hoping to see Sony’s games at the show, especially with how the PlayStation State of Play presentation in May was received by fans.

Sony had revealed release dates for Concord, Astro Bot, and the God of War Ragnarok PC port during the State of Play, with all three titles set to launch this year. Concord will be released on August 23, which falls amid the dates for Gamescom 2024. Moreover, the release dates for Astro Bot (September 6) and God of War Ragnarok PC port (September 19) are also not that far off.

However, PlayStation is not the only platform skipping the major video games showcase event, as Nintendo will also not be present at Gamescom 2024.

While both of those major console platforms will be a no-show, Xbox has doubled down on its commitment to Gamescom 2024. Xbox has announced that it will return for Gamescom this year, and will host its “biggest booth yet”.

Moreover, Xbox has also revealed some of the games and DLCs that they will be showcasing at Gamescom 2024. Fans can expect to hear about the following games and DLC:

  • Age of Mythology: Retold
  • Avowed
  • Ara: History Untold
  • Diablo IV: Vessel of Hatred
  • Diablo Immortal
  • The Elder Scrolls Online
  • Fallout 76
  • Towerborne
  • World of Warcraft: The War Within
