We were all excited for CDProjekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077 Night City Wire livestream but we will have to wait a little bit longer as the company has delayed the virtual event from June 11 to June 25. As per a tweet from the official Cyberpunk 2077 handle, the company is standing with the Black Lives Matter group and protests taking place in the United States right now and have postponed the event. The event was supposed to be a part of the Summer Games fest (which has also been postponed). The event would have given gamers a new look at the much-anticipated game but clearly, we will have to wait a little longer for a fresh look at Cyberpunk 2077.
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.— Cyberpunk 2077 (@CyberpunkGame) June 2, 2020
In fact, just yesterday we reported that Sony had also postponed its big reveal event for the PlayStation 5, which was scheduled to take place tomorrow, June 4. The company posted the statement regarding the postponement of the event on its official blog saying “We have decided to postpone the PlayStation 5 event scheduled for June 4. While we understand gamers worldwide are excited to see PS5 games, we do not feel that right now is a time for celebration and for now, we want to stand back and allow more important voices to be heard.” It looks like CDPR are following suit with a very similar message as you can see in the tweet above. Even IGN has pushed its Summer of Gaming events from June 5 to June 8 as well. We will have to wait just a bit longer to check out whatever these companies have to offer.
The world is going through a really rough time right now with the COVID-19 outbreak, cyclones and locust swarms and such. It seems like 2020 is essentially cancelled, for all intents and purposes.
In other Cyberpunk news, the Xbox One X Cyberpunk 2077 edition will also be the last unique version of the console and you can read more about that story here. The console was supposed to launch in June but we're not sure how that's going to turn out now.
