Cyberpunk 2077 “Night City Wire,” IGN Summer of Gaming and More Events Delayed


Anger and protest has erupted across the United States and other parts of the world following the killing of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police on May 25. Many publishers are opting to delay events previously planned for this week in solidarity with protests or simply because they realize this isn’t the optimal time to shine a spotlight on their games. Sony has already delayed their big PS5 reveal event originally planned for June 4 and Activision has pushed back the next season of Call of Duty: Warzone. New dates have not been provided for either.

Delays for additional gaming events, including Cyberpunk 2077’s “Night City Wire” and the kickoff to IGN’s Summer of Gaming have since been announced. I’ll keep this list updated, as it’s quite likely we’ll see more events delayed…

Update 2: Guerrilla Collective, which will showcase games from mid-sized publishers and studios like Larian Studios, Paradox Interactive, and Humble Bundle has been delayed to June 13.

For those who can't see the tweets above for whatever reason, Night City Wire will now take place on June 25, while IGN's events will kick off next Monday (June 8).

These are significant times we’re living in here. Here’s hoping for justice, positive change, and that those readers living in the U.S. continue to stay safe. With some luck we’ll be back to our regularly-scheduled game announcements next week.
