Sony’s PS5 event is postponed in light of mass protests in US

‘We do not feel that right now is a time for celebration.’

Sony has postponed this week’s PS5 event it had announced just last week, in light of the growing unrest and mass protests in the United States. The company announced the decision via the PlayStation Twitter account.

“We have decided to postpone the PlayStation 5 event scheduled for June 4,” the statement 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.”

While the death of George Floyd and the resulting protests and police brutality are not specifically mentioned, it is clear that that is what Sony is referring to. Sony’s decision echoes EA’s similar decision to postpone the unveiling of new Madden NFL 21 details. Similar decisions from other gaming companies should be expected.
