Due to recent events across The (un)Unites States, Sony is postponing its PlayStation 5 event that was scheduled for June 4th. The said on a
Twitter message “While we understand gamers worldwide are excited to see PS5 games, we do not feel that right now is a time for celebration, and for now, we want to stand back and allow more important voices to be heard.”
This delay happens in the wake of BLM protests that are happening right now in various states. This all started after the murder of George Floyd by officers of the Minneapolis Police Department.
Sony had been planning to use Thursday’s event to showcase PS5 games, promising an hour-long event with a first look at some of the games coming out on PS5 this holiday season, maybe even a full reveal of the console itself. Guess right now we will have to wait for a new date for this event to take place.
