Gamescom Attendance Rising, Battlefront Wins Game Of Show
Another Gamescom show is over and yet again, attendance rose.
Event organizers have announced that Gamescom 2015 welcomed 345,000 total attendees from 96 countries, including 33,200 trade visitors (up 5 percent compared to last year).
The world's largest gaming show's year-over-year growth "is a reflection of the increasing significance of computer and video games in our society," said Gamescom chief sponsor Dr. Maximilian Schenk. The event in Cologne seems to attract just about everyone in the industry...well, with the exception of Sony, the company that opted not to give a press briefing this year. Furthermore, it was revealed that the impressive Star Wars: Battlefront won the overall Game of Show award; guess the unveiling of that awesome Battle Squadron Mode swayed the judges.
Battlefront lands in November and you can expect next year's Gamescom to go on as scheduled in August.
