Koelnmesse’s confirmed dates for next year’s gamescom. We grabbed the dates as we left the Messe for the final time yesterday: it’s now confirmed the event will kick off on August 15-19 alongside GDC Europe, which will happen between August 13-15. Assumingly, the 15th will be another trade-only day, with 16th being the day it opens to the public, per what it has been before. No announcement on attendance figures for this year yet, but those will almost certainly come early next week.
A $50,000 PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds tournament will be hosted through G:loot’s Global Loot League.
