Electronic Arts has postponed this year’s EA Play games showcase (normally timed around the E3 event) by a week after the recent events surrounding the killing of George Floyd. The event – originally planned for June 11 – will now occur one week later on June 18.
Although the notice (below) doesn’t specifically mention Black Lives Matter, the company says it’s pausing in order to let important conversations and voices be heard.
Earlier this week, Sony also postponed its planned PlayStation 5 presentation.
