PLAY X with the Gamefest for game fans will be cancelled for the time being. The A MAZE. / Berlin Festival of ART X will take place from 22-25 July.

With the cancellation the organisers follow the decree from the Berlin health administration banning events with more than 1,000 participants until the end of the Easter holidays.

Already purchased tickets for the Gamefest will be refunded. PRO X tickets retain their validity for the event in October or will be refunded. More information about this can be found at www.gamesweekberlin.com/faq.

"As the well-being of our visitors has top priority, we decided to postpone PRO X. The growing risk of infection with the coronavirus has concerned us intensively over the last few weeks. We are excited we don’t have to cancel, but will be able to see PRO X happening in cooperation with EGX Berlin! Independent of the current situation, we are convinced that the combination of PRO X and EGX Berlin offers an excellent service package to our participants. We are looking forward to communicating further details within the next weeks", says Michael Liebe, head of gamesweekberlin and CEO of the organiser Booster Space.

The organisers of gamesweekberlin would like to thank all of the supporters and sponsors – first and foremost, Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg - who supported them in finding a solution for the event. FAQ and further information can be found at www.gamesweekberlin.com.
