CD Projekt Red has announced that its planned Cyberpunk 2077 event is being pushed back amid protests against racial injustice to make room for more important voices to be heard.
The event, which was scheduled for June 11, is now set for June 25. This follows Sony, who yesterday delayed its PlayStation 5: The Future of Gaming event originally scheduled for this week.
In a statement on Twitter, the development team laid its thoughts out for all to see:
We decided to move Night City Wire to Jun 25th. We still look forward to sharing new information about CPâ77, but more important discussions are happening right now and we want them to be heard. We wholeheartedly stand against racism, intolerance and violence. Black Lives Matter.— Cyberpunk 2077 (@CyberpunkGame) June 2, 2020
