Sony has announced that its PS5 game showcase event scheduled for June 4th is getting delayed due to the ongoing protests taking place in the United States and over the world. Just a week ago, the tech giant’s CEO, Jim Ryan, has confirmed that the ‘future of PlayStation’ will be unveiled within their streaming-only event, but now, it has been postponed.
The company has released a statement via Twitter, saying that due to the recent worldwide events, it would not be the right time to celebrate the PS5 game reveal.
“We have decided to postpone the PlayStation 5 event scheduled for June 4,” the announcement says. “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.”
What Games to Expect for PS5
In a blog post published back in March, Ryan said: “There are few things as exciting as the launch of a new console. While this road to launch has been a bit… different, we are as thrilled as ever to bring you with us on this journey to redefine the future of video games. We’ve shared technical specifications and shown you the new DualSense wireless controller. But what is a launch without games?”
The event would have revealed the games players would get to enjoy after the next-generation console launches this holiday season.
“The games coming to PS5 represent the best in the industry from innovative studios that span the globe. Studios, both larger and smaller, those newer and those more established, all have been hard at work developing games that will showcase the potential of the hardware,” Ryan said.
Some of the already confirmed titles for PS5 include Cyberpunk 2077, Assassin’s Creed Vallahla, Godfall, and Outriders. Considering the recent events, Sony has not announced a final date for the PS5 reveal.
