- Sony has yet to announce a new date for the PS5 reveal event that was delayed last Thursday, but a Twitch ad says that the event has been rescheduled for June 11th.
- We’re still waiting for official confirmation, but if the event is happening this week, we’ll know soon.
- Sony will show off major first-party and third-party PS5 games at the event, which starts at 4 p.m. ET.
In light of the Black Lives Matter protests against police brutality that began springing up all over the world last week, Sony made the decision to delay its PlayStation 5 showcase in order to “stand back and allow more important voices to be heard.” It was the right move, and as excited as we all are for the next-gen console, there were more important things to focus on. But the event couldn’t be delayed forever, and the new date might have just leaked.
On Monday, video game analyst Daniel Ahmad (@ZhugeEX) shared a screenshot of an ad from Twitch on Twitter that showed a new time and date for the PS5 event. According to the ad, the PS5 games showcase will now take place on June 11th at 1 p.m. PT / 4 p.m. ET — exactly one week after the original date that was pushed back.
