After what happened to a citizen of America last week. It seems we won’t be seeing an event from PlayStation on June 4. The situation in the U.S. is getting very havoc, as people are starting to loot, burn, and protest all over the country. Similarly, events are being canceled and the PS5 event is also going to be postponed.
In a tweet on twitter, the PlayStation account stated “We have decided to postpone the PlayStation 5 event scheduled for June 4,” the post reads. “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.”
The Parent company of PlayStation, Sony has also stood with the protest of the unjust killing of George Floyd. Sony tweeted thrice, condemning the killing of George Floyd. Moreover, other gaming personalities and companies like Microsoft, Naughty Dog, Riot Games, and EA also expressed solidarity with the Black Community.
The last statement from Sony stated “Right now, we want to use our platform to spread information & support. Please send links, resources, or other helpful information our way, and we’ll share them. When we all know more, we can do more. (3/3)”
So far, no new release dates have been announced. This event could be really delayed, and we might see PS5 in post-July. The current situation in the U.S. is getting horrible, and recovering from this could potentially take weeks.
