This week it was revealed that Hideo Kojima will be making an appearance at Gamescom 2019 which will be streamed live for the public. The word came out from the event this week, promoting his appearance for Opening Night Live on August 19th at 11am PDT/2PM EST. No word yet about the content of the show or the format, so who knows how much he'll actually say. But the fact that he'll be on stage to hopefully talk publically about Death Stranding is always fun news.

"I'm so excited to bring the gaming industry together for this unique night that will celebrate many of the biggest games at gamescom that are coming out later this year and in 2020 and beyond," said Geoff Keighley, producer/host, gamescom: Opening Night Live. "Fans watching the stream around the world should expect an
overview of what to expect during gamescom week, updates and reveals on some of the most anticipated games coming in the months ahead, as well as announcements of new projects too."
