With all of the traditional big gaming events cancelled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, game announcements have come very sporadically over the the past several months.
That said, Toronto’s own Geoff Keighley, creator of ‘The Game Awards,’ is bringing a variety of games to one place on August 27th: Gamescom Opening Night Live.
Produced in partnership with European gaming show Gamescom, Opening Night Live will feature at least 38 games from 18 different publishers, according to Keighley.
In terms of what to expect, Keighley says the show will primarily focus on games that have already been announced, with a “few surprises.” That said, he’s tempered expectations by saying there won’t be any “insane shocking surprise new game announcement[s].”
