Gaming is a shared passion around the world, and every time I attend Gamescom I am energized by the passion and excitement from the community in Cologne. The team and I are thrilled to be in Europe this summer to produce this show and share Gamescom with the global video game audience.
The Managing Director of game – the German Games Industry Association also shared a bit more about the inspiration behind the event as well as why Keighley is a good match:
Opening Night Live is an entirely new show designed to make gamers worldwide a bigger part of the gamescom experience. With his experience as host and producer of ‘The Game Awards’ and his strong international network, we couldn’t think of a better partner than Geoff to help us bring this show to life. We are looking forward to a special showcase of new games and announcements.
Gamescom 2019: Opening Night Live will stream on Monday August 19, 2019 at 8pm CEST, 2pm EDT, 11am PDT from Cologne, Germany. More information will be released running up to the event.
