CD Projekt Red postpones event

CD Projekt Red was going to have a Cyberpunk 2077 showcase, but the stream titled Night City Wire was postponed due to the current protests that are happening across the United States. The event was meant to happen on June 11 and is now pushed two weeks to June 25.

Protests, both peaceful and violent, have occurred across the U.S. due to the deaths of unarmed black Americans. Much of the movement is centered around George Floyd, who was a 46-year-old in Minneapolis and was killed on May 25 by officer Derek Chauvin. By May 29, Chauvin was arrested and charged for manslaughter and third-degree murder, which can lead to a 35-year sentence.

Other deaths have been a part of the discussion of police brutality and systemic racism in the U.S., like Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old EMT who had been killed in her own home by police officers entering her home. Currently, her death is being investigated by the FBI.

The protests have spread worldwide as people march through their cities and hold signs in solidarity to recent victims like Floyd and Taylor. France had thousands of protestors that ignited a response from the police. Australia had people marching and chanting, “I can’t breathe,” which was one of Floyd’s final words that can be seen in a video that showed his death.

Night City Wire is not the only event to be postponed. Sony was going to have a PS5 reveal event that would show off the next-gen console’s games on June 4, but that has been pushed indefinitely to focus on the Black Lives Matter movement.
