Of course, it was already advanced that instead of the classic face-to-face appointment some type of digital event would be held; Now, we finally know the dates on which it will take place: from August 27 to 30.

This has been shared by its organizers, confirming that at the end of August their own digital event will take place with large announcements, special programs, panels dedicated to specific titles and many other news related to the video game industry and the increasingly next-generation led for PS5 and Xbox Series X.
In addition, it has been confirmed that the Opening Night Live, the show presented by Geoff Keighley that was announced for August 24, will go on air on the 27th of the same month, an event that will precisely kick off Gamescom 2020 as part of the German event. But there is still more; Several shows have been confirmed as part of Gamescom, including the Awesom Indies, a program dedicated, as its name suggests, to independent video games.
