gamescom Opening Night Live is Keighley’s pre-show event for the German gamescom expo, with gamescom itself running from August 23 through August 27 this year. While Keighley confirmed the return of his own show, he has not revealed any specifics or schedule for this year’s Opening Night Live yet.
With the cancellation of E3 2023 and industry players’ move towards exclusive digital-only showcase events, Keighley has remained as the face of many of gaming’s biggest events. Besides gamescom Opening Night Live, he will also be holding his own Summer Game Fest in June and this year’s The Game Awards event as well.
