Sega has announced that it won’t be attending this years Gamescom event which takes place in Cologone from August 15th to the 19th. The publisher claims that the timing of the event didn’t work with its planned release schedule, and that it had made a “commercial decision” to skip it. Nintendo announced last month that they won’t be attending this years event.
“Sega has made the decision not to attend Gamescom this year.”
“Unfortunately the release timing of our 2012 triple-A titles and new projects don’t work with the mid-August scheduling of the show. The decision will not mean that Sega will never attend Gamescom in the future, this was simply a commercial decision made for 2012.”
