Geoff Keighley has announced on Twitter that he is hosting a major event as part of the gamescom 2019 event in Cologne, Germany.
Keighley has revealed that on August 19 at 11AM PT / 2PM ET / 8PM CEST that the Opening Night event will take place and be live-streamed worldwide for fans to watch on the website.
As part of this event, Keighley shared on Twitter a graphic as to which publishers will be part of the event, and Activision is listed as a partner to have an announcement during the event. Activision’s only new game for this fall is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, so we should expect something Modern Warfare related news to drop during the show.
