“While we understand gamers worldwide are excited to see PS5 games, we do not feel that right now is a time for celebration,” the PlayStation team said in a tweeted message. “For now, we want to stand back and let more important voices be heard.”
The Japan-based tech giant took this step during rising violence and racial tensions in the US in response to the police killing of a 46-year-old African-American George Floyd in an incident captured on video.
Looking forward to this ongoing mass protests in the US, US video game maker Electronic Arts also canceled its upcoming streaming presentation that was scheduled to take place this week that was devoted to a new Madden NFL 21 title based on US professional football.
“We stand with our African-American/ Black community of friends, players, colleagues, and partners,” Electronic Arts said. “Our immediate attention is on actions we can take to drive change against the unjust treatment and systemic bias that is plaguing the nation and our world.”
As for Sony PlayStation 5, we can expect to hear the new launch date soon after the ongoing mass protests in the US comes to its end.
