Cyberpunk 2077‘s “Night City Wire” livestream has been delayed in solidarity towards the Black Lives Matter movement. Originally scheduled to appear as part of the June 11 Summer Games Fest, the broadcast will now take place two weeks later on June 25. The livestream was meant to show off a new look at the upcoming RPG.
“We still look forward to sharing new information about CP’77, 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,” the Cyberpunk 2077 account tweeted Tuesday.
Sony has also decided to postpone its PlayStation 5 event, stating it wants “to stand back and allow more important voices to be heard.” The event would have provided new details on the upcoming next-gen console and may have revealed its new design. Epic Games’ third season of Fortnite: Chapter 2 has also been delayed in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter protests as well, noting “we’re acutely aware of the pain our friends, families, team members, players, and communities are experiencing.”
In other gaming news, Call of Duty has added a Black Lives Matter loading screen to its games.
We decided to move Night City Wire to Jun 25th. We still look forward to sharing new information about CP’77, 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.
