Along with the upcoming DC FanDome, Gamescom will be one of the few major digital showcases left for the season. It caps off the Summer Game Fest and despite the physical event’s cancellation, several publishers like Activision-Blizzard, EA and Bethesda will have an online presence at the show. There will also be a Gamescom Opening Night Live and if host Geoff Keighley is to be believed, there will be quite a number of titles.
According to Keighley on Twitter, the live show will feature more than 20 games with “lots to reveal in the next few weeks.” Of course, how many of these will be major announcements remains to be seen. Nevertheless, if last year was any indication, there should be a few big titles to look forward to.
Gamescom Opening Night Live takes place on August 27th and kick off the entire event, which ends on August 30th. Currently, Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park fame is confirmed to be composing music for the live show. Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.
