gamescom 2022: a success despite fewer visitors than 2019 – what is your conclusion?

It’s over, the first gamescom on site, after we could only experience it digitally for two years. However, since the pandemic is still affecting our lives, gamescom 2022 presented itself a little differently, with no tickets available to buy on site and fewer exhibitors and games, to name just a few examples. Nevertheless, gamescom was a success, as the Cologne trade fair has now presented with some figures.

Here are some numbers:

  • Approx. 265,000 visitors from over 100 countries were on site at the fair, around 108,000 fewer than in the record year 2019 (373,000 visitors)
  • until Saturday evening more than 130,000,000 views of the entire show program
  • over 1,100 exhibitors from 53 countries
  • over 12 million views at Opening Night Live
  • more than 100,000 people at the gamescom city festival in Cologne

Due to the general situation, it was already foreseeable that the success of 2019 could not be repeated or even surpassed. Big names like Nintendo, Activision Blizzard or Sony were missing. In addition, many stayed away from the fair because of the pandemic, but basically fewer tickets were offered. Nevertheless, 2022 can be celebrated as a successful comeback, if only because there were more visitors in Cologne in 2022 than was the case between 2009 and 2010.
