The Gamescom 2020 is getting closer, and it also increases the curiosity of fans around the world. This is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated events in the sector, with all its advertising possibilities and ideas for future developments.
Gamescom 2020 will officially open on August 27, and we are already talking about the event and what its current communication and commercial potential are. Based on what recently reported by Geoff Keighley, it would seem that the Opening Night Live will develop over a period of about two hours, pitted along with the presentation of about 20 upcoming games.
Geoff Keighley, head of the production for the opening night to be held next Thursday, recently revealed, through a tweet, that a handful of games will also be shown during these days, to then be further explored during the event, always keeping in mind the big brands currently in the game: Wargaming, SEGA, Blizzard, Koch Media, Astragon, Electronic Arts, Bethesda, Ubisoft, Bandai Namco, Nintendo, Xbox, Ea, Activision, and many others.

The Opening Night Live of Gamescom 2020 will, therefore, be held on Thursday 27 August, at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET. There is a great deal of expectation regarding what could be shown during the event, even at the expense of the lack of some well-known brands, and of the current transformations and methods of use and contact generally linked to Covid-19.
So we just have to wait for new details on the matter, hoping for transposition of the event that remains faithful to the traditions and quality built over the previous years, even if no longer as tangible as it once was.
