Earlier this year was the announcement of a new segment for Gamescom 2019 called Opening Night Live. Produced by Game Awards creator Geoff Keighley. A tweet by the official Gamescom twitter account has announced that there will over 15 publishers and some world first content being shown.
But that’s not all, the mind behind the action adventure title (or however you would define it) Death Stranding, Hideo Kojima will be showing previews of the game. Probably showing us more footage and making us even more confused and intrigued.
Publishers according to a tweet by Geoff Keighley includes 2K, Activision, Bandai Namco, Bungie, Capcom, EA, Epic, Google Stadia, Koch/Deep Silver and Private Division. Also Sega, Square Enix, Sony, THQ Nordic, Ubisoft and Xbox are also set to reveal something.

But there are already some absentees, with Blizzard opting out this year. Nintendo also don’t seem to be part of the lineup, but there could a Direct waiting in the wings. While Elden Ring has been confirmed not to be part of Bandai Namco’s lineup at Gamescom, maybe there will be a snippet of a trailer? There has also been a rumour that some Elden Ring footage may be shown privately.
There could be a few good surprises in store as it’s looking to be quite the opening night. The event will kick off on August 19th at 8:00PM CEST/11:00 AM PT.
