The Witcher 2 will be at Gamescom

It looks like Gamescom is going to be huge this year. We're seeing more and more developers opting to show and announce their games at this European show rather than E3 and the latest on the list is The Witcher 2, sequel to one of my favourite role playing games in recent years...

devs have no choice but to save announcements because both E3&GC are huge events

Well GC is only becoming big now. Big in the sense that it will actually have announcements and exclusives, not on attendance. I know GC's attendance was huge last year as well. You've got to remember that this is only the 2nd Gamescom ever, so devs might have been a bit sceptical last year. Regardless, it's going to be a hell of a show.

Gamescom is really really huge, you can say it'a 'Big 3' with E3 and TGS. Developers, companies, and media will need to recognize it.
E3 2010: ~45K visitors and 300 companies, Gamescom 2009: ~245K visitors and 450 comapanies

And it's a great thing The Witcher 2 will be released on all platforms but with some delays in between.

Considering this is a game made by european developers and targeted mostly at the european market I find it absolutely predictable for it to be present at the biggest european gaming convention.

I'm just saying that until recently, E3 and TGS were typically the places you'd find all the major announcements and games. This year, Gamescom could also be placed in that category.

They had it at E3, but for some reason it was just one station tucked away in the back.

You're telling me that a European game studio will have it's game at a European gaming convention!? NO WAY!!

I was just about to say the same thing.

Sweet, the first one was awesome. The second is looking to be even better. Yay new combat system.
