More Gaming Events Delayed Due To The US Protests And Riots

PC Gaming Show 2020 and Future Games Show 2020 hop off from this week.

Let’s see: The Future of Gaming (Sony, PlayStation 5), Night City Wire (CD Projekt RED, Cyberpunk 2077), Summer of Gaming 2020 (IGN’s E3 replacement). So far, we discussed the delay of these events. (And it all started with Electronic Arts pushing back the reveal of Madden NFL 21, which will now possibly happen during EA Play Live.) The list continues to grow – we can carve two more names on this list.

„Like you, we have found it hard over the last week to focus on anything other than the demands for justice and the justifiable anger that millions of Americans are expressing. Right now, we want to make space for those speaking out and demonstrating about how to end the systemic oppression and police brutality experienced by black people. In support of that movement, we are postponing the broadcast of this year’s PC Gaming Show by a week to Saturday, June 13. This year’s event represents the collective work of hundreds of passionate, committed, supremely talented developers whose vision we’re excited to help share,” we see on Twitter. Although there’s no exact date mentioned, we can presume it will start at noon PT/3 PM ET.

„The Future Games Show will now take place at the later date of Saturday, June 13 in support of the protests demanding justice and change over the death of George Floyd at the hands of the police. While we regret to announce that we’ll be moving the date, it’s right that other voices are heard at this time. Our sister site PC Gamer has also announced that the PC Gaming Show will also be postponed until Saturday, June 13. Both shows were originally due to take place on Saturday, June 6. We remain excited to share the exclusive reveals, deep-dives on the future of gaming, developer interviews, and roundtables with many of gaming’s biggest and brightest talents,” GamesRadar writes. Again, no new timeslot mentioned, so let’s presume 2:30 PM PT/5:30 PM ET, as originally planned.

Nothing happens this year as we predicted. First, the coronavirus ruined many plans, and now, the protests change things at the last second. We wouldn’t be surprised if more delays follow.
