Over 245,000 enthusiastic visitors, 458 exhibitors and 4,100 journalists helped make last year's debut Gamescom a huge success and a highlight in the international games industry calendar.
"As a focal point for the games industry, Gamescom continues to develop internationally and will be the place to meet for the international industry and the trade," spokesman Franko Fischer told MCV.
"Only in Cologne in August will the trade get to meet the whole value-added chain from developer to industry, international trade and consumers."
