EA, Ubisoft, Bigpoint, Take-Two and Bethesda already on board

Gamescom 2012 is still five months away but already the show has garnered a healthy level of support from across the globe.

Companies from 21 countries are already signed up, covering territories such as China, Iran, Israel, Korea, Czechoslovakia, Latvia and Singapore – as well as big hitters such as the UK, USA, Germany, Italy and France.

Publishers already on board include EA, Ubisoft, Bigpoint, Take-Two, Bethesda, Konami, NCsoft and Koch Media.

The show promises a broadened remit with focus on both the core and emerging markets.

In addition, Koelnmesse organisers have also received registration for 11 National Community Stands, matching the total number of similar bookings for last year’s events.

Gamescom 2012 kicks off on August 15th. You can register here.
