Sony postpones PS5 event on June 4, the official PlayStation account wrote on Twitter. The tweet said that the first games on the console will be announced on a date to be determined.
The digital event, initially planned for Thursday night, is postponed until further notice. A brief official statement published this Monday caught everyone by surprise: “We have decided to postpone the PlayStation 4 event scheduled for June 4.”
This is not the right time to celebrate
Although the reasons are not explained, the social tension risen in the United States started with the death of George Floyd, has reached a global scale and solidarity against racism extends throughout the industry. If this morning we saw that companies such as Bethesda, Riot Games, Summergall Studios, Sony, Naughty Dog or Xbox joined the #BlackLivesMatter movement, the Japanese company might have decided to remain silent so that other voices are heard at the moment.
“While we understand that 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,” they say.

What are we supposed to see on PS5 event?
As we said, Sony has not specified the new date of that event or if they will modify it regarding the planned content plan; it is hoped, however, that they will give more details in the coming days. In the meantime, they signify around silence so as not to detract from the voice, which, in their opinion, must be heard.
It was confirmed that we were going to see the first games on the console; including some of those that will accompany the launch of the machine this Christmas. Jim Ryan, CEO and President of Sony Interactive Entertainment, has stated in numerous interviews that the now postponed launch event will be “as exciting” as an E3 conference.
The price of PS5 is equally unknown, although there are already many aspects that we know of the fifth generation of domestic consoles from the Japanese firm. In this article , we review all confirmed third-party publisher games for now.
