As we announced earlier, the linking of an advertisement on Twitch indicated that Sony already had a date to hold The Future of Gaming event, which will speak, among other news, about the launch of the PlayStation 5.
However, until the publication, there was no confirmation about the event by the company. Now, this information is confirmed and Sony itself has disclosed, through its Twitter, the date and time. However, the company announced that the event will begin at 1 pm on June 11, Thursday, in Pacific time.
“See you on Thursday, June 11, at 1 pm Pacific time (9 pm British summertime) in a look at the future of games on PS5.”
The event will be broadcast via Twitch or Youtube. For more information about the event, access the official website through this link.
PS5 launch event may have new date
Last week the event that would talk about the launch of the PlayStation 5, among other novelties in the universe, was postponed due to the demonstrations that take place in the United States in search of human rights. After George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis, several Americans took to the streets in protests in defense of blacks.
With that, Sony did not disclose a date, just announced the postponement of the event. However, through linked advertising on Twitch, we may have information about the day. Apparently, the event, which is called “The Future of Gaming”, is scheduled for next Thursday, June 11th, starting at 4 pm local time.
It is important to note that, to date, there is no official information from Sony, and that this linked advertisement on Twitch is not official information. However, we can already have a base and soon we can have more news.
#BlackLivesMatter: wave of protests in the US leads Sony to postpone PlayStation 5 event
Sony decided to postpone its event that offered news about the PlayStation 5. And it was not because of the current pandemic of the new coronavirus.
The company had scheduled for June 4 a digital broadcast in which it would present news about the PS5, which could include the officialization of up to 38 games according to PlayStation Magazine, and perhaps gameplay trailers running natively on the next-generation device. The expectation was high, and the company even showed, in a teaser, a probable new Dual Sense, this time entirely black.
The Japanese woman, however, decided to back down because of the protests that have taken over the United States over the past few days after George Floyd, a black American, was murdered by a white police officer. Even without offering resistance, Floyd was suffocated for more than eight minutes, in an approach that was filmed and went viral on the internet, which started the #BlackLivesMatter movement.
Sony is not the first company to postpone an event because of the protests, but stressed that at this point “more important voices need to be heard”.
Therefore, there is no more date for the virtual celebration to take place. But it should be noted that Sony had already promised digital events more routinely from June, revealing small drops of information from the PS5 until its launch. So the postponement should not be long.
Remember, the PlayStation 4 has been showing that it does not have much more breath to hold the finances of the Japanese. Even because the line of smartphones Xperia never sold so badly …
And you, when do you think the event will be broadcast now? Tell us in the comments!
