Cyberpunk 2077's Night City Wire Event Delayed to Later This Month

"More important discussions are happening right now and we want them to be heard."

CD Projekt Red has moved back the broadcast of its Cyberpunk 2077 stream amid ongoing protests in the United States. The Night City Wire broadcast will now air on June 25, in order for more important discussions to happen now.

In a statement on Twitter, CD Projekt Red also voiced support for the ongoing Black Lives Matter movement.

"We decided to move Night City Wire to June 25th," read the statement. "We still look forward to sharing new information about Cyberpunk 2077, 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."

Several other video game companies have delayed their previous schedule streams for this week. Electronic Arts delayed its big Madden NFL 21 stream, and Sony pushed back the PlayStation 5 games showcase, both citing the ongoing protests that have followed in the wake of the deaths of black Americans like George Floyd and Breonna Taylor.

Throughout the last week, protests have been staged nationwide speaking against systemic racism in the criminal justice system. Other events, like IGN's Summer of Gaming, have had their kickoffs postponed in solidarity with Black Lives Matter and the protests.

Other events, like this weekend's Guerrilla Collective showcase, have yet to move their stream date as of this writing. While COVID-19 may have moved everything online, the ongoing discourse and world events essentially mandate that some things be put on hold for a moment. Video games can wait, but this issue cannot.
