Sony has decided to postpone its PlayStation 5 event due to the protests regarding #BlackLivesMatter. The event was to be held on June 4th but the company says that it is important to give maximum space to the movement.
“While we understand gamers worldwide are excited to see PS5 games, we do not feel that right now is a time for celebration,” says Sony in a Twitter message. “And for now, we want to stand back and allow more important voices to be heard.”
Sony was scheduled to release PS5 games with this event before the holiday season but George Floyd’s death has brought rage and the company is right in concluding that the time for the celebration can wait.
EA also postponed its Madden NFL 21 event today and the beta Android 11 announcement by Google faced delays too.
