Whether you're going to be attending Gamescom 2019 in person or you're watching all the reveals from home, there's plenty to be excited for. Geoff Keighley, well known for being the creator and producer of the hugely-successful Game Awards show, announced today that the Gamescom Opening Night Live show will feature "world premiere content and announcements" from more than 15 different publishers.
Nintendo is not one of the publishers that Geoff names in the announcement on Twitter, so Nintendo fans should probably keep their expectations in check in regards to new announcements. With that said, it's possible that a game being announced by another publisher or developer will be coming to the Nintendo Switch, or maybe Nintendo falls under the "more" in "more than 15." Publishers and developers that will be present include (but aren't limited to) 2K, Activision, Bandai Namco, Capcom, Sega and Ubisoft.
If you're interested in attending Gamescom 2019 but you haven't signed up yet, you can still get tickets here. The floor for Gamescom will be open from August 20 through August 24, 2019. The Gamescom Opening Night Live show will be held on August 19, 2019 at 8:00 p.m. CEST/2:00 p.m. EDT/11:00 a.m. PDT. The show will be streamed on all major platforms, so you'll be able to find it on Mixer, Twitch and YouTube.
