It was announced today that this year’s Gamescom Opening Night Live will take place a couple of days later than everyone initially planned.

Geoff Keighley, the event’s coordinator, confirmed today in a tweet that the show will stream digitally on August 27th through to August 30th. The Opening Night Live is the precursor to Gamescom and previously Keighley announced the all-digital show would go live on August 24th.

Also in a statement released today stated,

“Since the world’s largest event for computer and video games cannot take place on location in Cologne this year due to the corona pandemic, digital formats and platforms are therefore being continually expanded.

“From August 27 to 30, there will be lots of new shows, a greatly expanded Gamescom now platform as a content hub for all the latest insights and news, and digital devcom’s wide-ranging program for game developers and other trade visitors as well as so much more.”
