With a sudden tweet posted on official profile, Sony announced that the June 4 event dedicated to Playstation 5 has been canceled.
“We have decided to postpone the Playstation 5 event set for June 4th. We understand that gamers around the world are eager to see PS5 games, but we don't think it's time for a celebration and for now, we want to step back and allow more important voices to be heard. "
The clear reference is to the delicate situation in the United States where protests raged after the death of George Floyd.
The event is therefore postponed until a later date.
