This week’s Gamescom: Opening Night Live stream will feature 38 games but focus on titles that have already been announced.
That’s according to organiser Geoff Keighley, who wrote on Sunday that the event would be broadcast live from Los Angeles and run for around 2 hours.
“There will be some new game announcements, but like Opening Night Live last year, the show is primarily focused on updates from announced titles. So no, we aren’t ‘announcing’ 38 new games,” he wrote.
The show is set to start at 11am PT / 2pm ET /7pm BST on Thursday, August 27.
