We’ve known for a while that Gamescom will once again be an all-digital event. But, as with 2020, that won’t stop Geoff Keighley from holding a live nightly opening ceremony. The two-hour livestream of the upcoming games will take place on Wednesday, August 25th at 11am PT / 7pm GMT.

This year is still one of frequent delays due to the ongoing pandemic, but the holiday period seems quiet for releases so far, so it will be interesting to see what the latter half of the year has in store. take two recently confirmed There’s a new series in the works, rumored to be Marvel XCOM, but a whole bunch of games have already been ported all the way to 2022.
Even in the pre-pandemic era, publishers increasingly took to not waiting for big offers to announce games. But Keighley’s Summer Games Fest did well this year, which gives me hope that he might continue to pull something out of his hat until the end of the year.
if not? Well, there is always next year.
The opening of Night Live will be “Live and Share Everywhere”, meaning platforms like Twitch and YouTube, and we’ll receive all announcements as they happen.
