What comes as no shock, PlayStation have now officially announced the postponement of their PlayStation 5 event on June 4 in solidarity with the civil unrest happening in America after the murder of George Floyd by police. PlayStation tweeted out the message above on their official Twitter page, saying;
“We have decided to postpone the PlayStation 5 event scheduled for June 4.
“While we understand that gamers worldwide are excited to see PS5 games, we do not feet that right now is a time for celebration and for now, we want to stand back and allow more important voices to be heard.”
For now, we also don’t know when exactly this event will be postponed till, but it’s assumed the event will still happen sometime in June. There are more important things than games at the moment, so it’s understandable as even Google announced their Android 11 beta launch event being postponed. Let’s see how things play out in the U.S. before even thinking about any events coming up. Google and PlayStation definitely won’t be the only ones to hold out on their plans.
What do you guys think? Is the postponing of the event warranted? Let us know in the comments!
