Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda Is Writing A Song For Gamescom 2020

This year’s Gamescom event is taking place virtually, and now we’ve learned a little more about it. The show will kick off with an Opening Night Live event hosted by Geoff Keighley, and it’s now been confirmed that it will have an original theme song written by Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda.

Shinoda is going to write this song live on Twitch, and the tweet announcing it suggests he will collaborate with commenters on what they want to hear. The songwriting event starts at 10 AM PT on August 12 here on Shinoda’s Twitch channel.

The Gamescom Opening Night Live takes place on August 27. It’s the beginning of Gamescom 2020 but the end of Keighley’s Summer Games Fest event. This is Keighley’s summer-long series featuring developer interviews and news events.

Next up for Summer Games Fest is the Baldur’s Gate III: Panel from Hell event on August 18 that promises new insights on the much-anticipated RPG. After that, Summer Games Fest continues on August 22 with the DC Fandome event with more news on Rocksteady’s new Suicide Squad game.
