Gamescom 2023: Opening Night with few announcements

Moderator Geoff Keighley hints that this year’s Gamescom Opening Night is less about new announcements.

Presenter Geoff Keighley is now lowering viewers’ expectations of this year’s Gamescom Opening Night a little.

In an interview with VGC, Keighley stated that the event is much more about news about already known games and less about announcing new games.

Keighley said: “It’s going to be an exciting show with new looks at many of the games that have been announced such as Alan Wake 2 and Black Myth Wukong. This year’s ONL is less about announcing brand new projects and more about giving fans updates on some of the biggest games coming out next year.”

As the show’s producer, Keighley also spoke about the challenges that production brings, but also the opportunities that come with it.

“First of all, it is a logistical challenge for our team in Los Angeles to produce a large-scale trade fair in Cologne. Luckily, Gamescom and Kolnemesse are great partners.”

“The other challenge – but also opportunity – is that this show is directly linked to the partners and games that will be exhibiting at Gamescom. We always try to create synergies between what happens at the fair and at the ONL.”

Last year, 35 games were shown in around two hours on the opening night.
