So, this concludes the ‘Future of Gaming’ PS5 Launch Event is postponed, and the wait goes for some more days or weeks. There is not new updated date announced for the event to commence. Sony seems to be respecting the situation towards the ongoing protests and situations prevailing in the US. Already, PS5 launch has been going through the tough times of COVID-19, and Sony did not back away from their events.
Also, the situations seem to be getting close to normal, as the world is getting accustomed to the global pandemic. As the current situation of protests and unrest is very sensitive, this decision has come. The celebration event amidst such a critical situation might not feel right, and also strategically, they might not get the needed attention. This recent move by Sony Playstation Team can be appreciated as they chose to step aside to make other’s voices to be heard.
