Gamescon 2022

It’s time to get ready for the next game showcase as Gamescom Opening Night Live 2022 kicks off its two-hour show Today, August 23, at 2 PM EST. Get ready to learn about new and upcoming titles for a number of games in a show that any gamer just won’t want to miss. Players will be able to watch the Gamescom Opening Night Live 2022 on their official channels on both YouTube and Twitch.

While the games lineup is usually kept a secret, the Gamescom host, Geoff Keighley, did confirm 11 games that are planned to make an appearance. So far the confirmed games are as follows:

• Goat Simulator 3

• Gotham Knights

• Hogwarts Legacy

• High on Life

• Honkai Star Rail

• Return to Monkey Island

• Sonic Frontiers

• The Callisto Protocol

• The Expanse: Telltale Series

• The Outlast Trials

• Unknown Worlds New IP

With only 11 game titles confirmed, that leaves over 19 titles still to be announced. Many have speculated that with Ubisoft attending there could be more information about Assassin's Creed Infinity that was confirmed back in 2021. In addition, the heavily anticipated Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora could also be shown, but this may be wishful thinking as the title was delayed.

Another rumor that has been circulating is the possibility that Quantic Dream will reveal a new game–exciting news considering the studio has not released a new game since 2018. Finally, Nintendo fans looking for gaming news will have to wait for the next Nintendo Direct, as it should come as no surprise, but they will not be attending this year's Gamescom 2022, and instead will be hosting their own events. Players excited for the Destiny 2 Showcase can find times and dates below along with other scheduled events.

Still, even without Nintendo, there will be loads of other juicy announcements that fans will be sure to look forward to, so make sure to tune in today, and if not, we will be sure to keep you updated on all things multiplayer.
