Because of the coronavirus epidemic, the 11th edition of Paris Games Week, or PGW, could not take place from October 23 to 27, 2020 and this year has got the better of the event as well since the SELL or Union Trade for Leisure Software Developers stated on Thursday June 24 in a release there will be no edition in 2021. But remember: the gaming event will be back in 2022 as the union trade confirmed.

Bad news for gamers. Because of the uncertainties related to the coronavirus health situation, Paris Games Week promoters have announced the 11th  edition of this major video gaming show - that was to take place in October 2020 - will not take place either in October 2021. But good news though, the Syndicat des Editeurs de Logiciels de Loisirs (SELL) stated in a release issued this Thursday June 24, 2021 the gaming event will be back in 2022.

In 2020 already, the uncertainties led promoters to cancel the edition that was to turn 10: "The current context and the necessary anticipation of  both the technical and logistical complexities of an event such as Paris Games Week have led us to cancel this edition" they explained in a release.

As per usual, Paris Games Week was to take place at the Parc des Expos – Porte de Versailles. For 5 days, the Syndicat des Editeurs de Logiciels de Loisirs takes over different halls at Paris Expo - Porte de Versailles with a now cult show.

End of the year's novelties, games premiers, international eSport championship and this year, for the second edition, a symphonic concert a stone’s throw from the fair at Dôme de Paris, Palais des Sports, a crazy event! This year, a better spot is made to cosplayers who are given a new spot featuring a photocall, a devoted store and exceptional guests. As for Youtubers, we have Squeezie as well as other stream talents such as Wankil, Jiraya, Maxildan, Zouloux, Hugo and even Zank for an exclusive moment.

Every year, parents are invited to discover the gaming universe with Pedagojeux, an area dedicated to understand the passion of our deak kiddos for video games. For coding enthusiasts and playful video creation fans, an area also invites our children to discover a rather unknown job and to create their very own video game they can bring home to play on their computer. This year again, Women in Games is here to raise awareness about female gamers in the video game field, while the BNF invites us to discover the history of video game. Also note that a "Play as you are" area, supervised by Capgame is available, as well as an animated art gallery by group ArtTitudeCentre Pompidou with the presentation of a game created by the museum and focusing on moden art, as well as Paradise Game at the Africa Corner.
