What you need to know

  • Geoff Keighley has announced Gamescom Opening Night Live, a presentation to open Gamescom 2019.
  • Gamescom will feature "world premiere content and announcements" from more than 15 publishers.

  • The Gamescom show floor will be open from August 20 through August 24, 2019.

Whether you're going to be attending Gamescom 2019 in person or you're watching all the reveals from home, there's plenty to be excited for. Geoff Keighley, well known for being the creator and producer of the hugely-successful Game Awards show, announced today that the Gamescom Opening Night Live show will feature "world premiere content and announcements" from more than 15 different publishers.

Interestingly enough, Xbox Game Studios is one of the publishers mentioned, despite the fact that Xbox is holding its own dedicated Inside Xbox show for Gamescom 2019 earlier in the day. Maybe they are saving a reveal for this show, or perhaps it will be a rehash of whatever they announced already. Other publishers and developers that will be present include (but aren't limited to) 2K, Activision, Bandai Namco, Capcom, Sega and Ubisoft.
