When the gamescom 2016 exhibitor list was released earlier this week, Sony was absent, suggesting they wouldn’t be attending the event. In a comment sent to PCGames.de (translated by Google Translate) today though, Sony has confirmed that they’ll have a booth at gamescom 2016, where they’ll be showing off some PlayStation 4 games.

Searching the newly updated exhibitor list on gamescom’s website also confirms that Sony will be present at Hall 7.1.

However, it remains to be seen if Sony will be holding their European press conference at gamescom 2016. At E3 2016 last month, PlayStation Europe President Jim Ryan said they still hadn’t determined if it will happen at gamescom, Paris Games Week (where they held their 2015 press conference), or another event.
