It's reported that Sony has decided to skip gamescom this year.
The last gamescom Sony attended was in 2019 before COVID-19 swept the globe.
This year will mark the fourth opening night presentation handled and hosted by Geoff Keighley. It will take place on August 22.
While Sony may not be attending the event, Nintendo will have a presence, along with plenty of other developers and publishers such as Bandai Namco, Giant's Software, and Team17.
This year's gamescom takes place August 23-27 in Cologne, Germany.
