With the Gamescom 2019 Opening Night Live event less than two weeks away, host Geoff Keighley has announced on Twitter the publishers who will be premiering new content and various announcements during the first few hours of Gamescom 2019. Check out the tweet below, along with a list of possible titles we could see from the publishers.

  • 2K – it would be surprising if we don’t see more from the upcoming Borderlands 3, which will be releasing in September. The publisher has also recently revealed more information for WWE 2K20, so that could make an appearance at this year’s Gamescom.
  • Activision – expect a grand showcase of the upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare from Activision at this year’s Gamescom.
  • Bandai Namco Entertainment – the Japanese publisher has revealed quite a number of new titles earlier this year during E3, like Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot and Tales of Arise. The company already confirmed FromSoftware’s Elden Ring will be premiered for the press during Gamescom.
  • Bungie – the developer behind Destiny 2 will most likely reveal more news with regards to the game’s move to a free-to-play model come September, as well as its upcoming expansion Shadowkeep.
