Gamescom Has Announced Its 2021 Award Nominees

Gamescom, the German gaming event that takes place in Cologne each year, has announced its official list of award nominees for 2021.

The show runs from August 25-27 this year, and Gamescom has consistently been one of the biggest gaming events in the world. An international journey made up of experts, journalists, content creators, and more, has put together the list of nominees. Fans can cast their vote starting today on the official site, and voting will end on August 28.

The biggest category is, of course, Most Anticipated Game which includes a wealth of nominees including Age of Empires IV, Far Cry 6, Halo Infinite, Tales of Arise, and more. Interesting there’s also a selection titled “undisclosed title,” which means fans can expect at least one fairly big announcement during the show.
