Sega, Capcom, Valve confirmed as gamescom exhibitors

Friday, 17th June 2011 08:14 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Organisers for gamescom have fully announced this year’s attending publisher line-up, with several making a return to Germany after missing out last year.

Both Sega and Capcom will be in Cologne in August after both publishers missed out in 2010. Sega pulled out for “commercial reasons, while Capcom lamented a lack of line-up for the latter half of late 2010 and early 2011 as its explanation for not showing up.

Valve will also appear at the show following a non-attendance at E3, although what we’ll see bar maybe DotA 2 is unknown as yet.

All three first-parties – Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo – are all confirmed for Cologne as well, just in case you were worried one or all of them pulled out for some silly reason.

There’s a full list of who’s attending at GoNintendo. gamescom takes place in Cologne, Germany between August 17-22.

    Dammit, I read Valve will be there and was so happy but then saw the Dota 2 mention. Nothing against Dota but I want to see the next big game from Valve.

    Yeah…fingers crossed for Half-Life 3 or the next Counter-Strike, but probably just DotA 2…if we don’t see any new games here though, I’m keeping my eye on this year’s VGAs for what’s next from Valve

    Hm. Less and less devs/publishers going to E3 and taking up cons like GamesCom and PAX instead. Can’t say I’m surprised. The whole tradeshow / press-only deal was never a great way to connect with consumers, after all.
