“Gaming is a shared passion around the world, and every time I attend Gamescom I am energized by the passion and excitement from the community in Cologne,” Keighley said of the new partnership. “The team and I are thrilled to be in Europe this summer to produce this show and share Gamescom with the global video game audience.”
