Gamescom 2020 Opening Night Will Feature 38 Games Over 2 Hours
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the gaming industry, forcing significant delays and cancellations of gaming events and conventions over the past 7-8 months. Thankfully that isn’t enough to keep Gamescom down, as it’s been revealed that the highly anticipated ‘Opening Night Live’ of Gamescom 2020 will feature loads of content for viewers, just without the spontaneity of a live physical audience.
Geoff Keighley recently took to Twitter to break down some of what to expect from Gamescom 2020 Opening Night Live. According to Keighley, the show kicking off on Thursday will be live from a studio in Los Angeles, with the Summer Game Fest host expecting 38 games from 18 different publishers over the show’s expected run time of 2 hours.
A few things on #OpeningNightLive for Thursday:
– Show is LIVE from a studio in Los Angeles. We’re being very careful, no live audience.
– Currently 38 games in the show from 18 different publishers.
– Expected run time: 2 hours.
More to share in coming days!

Prior to the internet running rampant over the possibility of 38 unique game reveals, Geoff Keighley clarified that Opening Night Live is instead focused on updates from previously announced titles, such as the upcoming DOOM Eternal DLC The Ancient Gods. Fans of Fall Guys can also look forward to a sneak peek at Season 2 of the title, with Keighley promising to share “much more” on what to expect from the show in the coming days.
