Update: An official statement for Gamescom 2020 has now been released, which we have below.


Original: The German Press Agency has reported that the German government have banned all public events until August 31st 2020 in response to social distancing measures implemented due to the COVID-19 pandemic, effectively cancelling Gamescom 2020.

While the show’s organizers have yet to comment on the status of the show going forward, last month a post on the event’s website claiming that if the physical event could not go ahead, they would instead host a digital event in its absence.

This story is developing and we will update as the organisers respond to this situation.

Even though not all details are known at present, the nationwide ban on major events until the end of August will also affect the planning for Gamescom 2020. Furthermore: Gamescom 2020 will definitely take place digitally! We will provide further information shortly.

Niantic have announced that they are implementing more features to allow Pokémon GO players to play from home during the COVID-19 pandemic including a new ‘Remote Raid Pass’ item which allows players to find nearby raids without having to physically travel to their location.

The item will be available in the in-game store and will act similarly to the Raid Pass available in the game currently, allow a limited number of players to participate in raids. In the future, players will unfortunately see a decrease in their attack power when using the item however.

Niantic stated:

Nintendo has confirmed via Twitter that the upcoming epilogue featured in Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition, Future Connected, is set one year after the events of the main game.
