What To Expect

According to Keighley’s tweet, the Opening Night Live broadcast will be a two-hour live showcase that features a “new look at this holiday’s biggest upcoming video games and what lies beyond.”

As of yet, there is no word yet on which games specifically may show up. However, we do know that Electronic Arts, Xbox, Activision, Bethesda, Ubisoft, Bandai Namco, Koch Media, and Wargaming are among the companies confirmed to attend Gamescom (but not necessarily Opening Night Live). Activision is rumored to announce Call of Duty: Vanguard this month, but whether or not it shows up at Gamescom remains to be seen. Keep checking back with GameSpot for the latest.
