June is jam-packed with a lot of events due to the cancelation of E3 2020 because of COVID-19. This month, events happening include IGN’s Summer of Gaming, the PC Gaming Show, Guerilla Collective Festival, EA Play Live, Day of the Devs showcase #1, New Game+ Expo, Marvel’s Avengers War Table stream, and Night Wire City. CD Projekt Red’s livestream for Cyberpunk 2077 was set to take place on June 11, however, due to recent events involving the death of George Floyd, the developers have decided to move the event two weeks to June 25 because “more important discussions are happening right now and we want them to be heard.”
We decided to move Night City Wire to Jun 25th. We still look forward to sharing new information about CP’77, 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.
