Sony had deferred the last week’s Playstation 5 launch in light of the ongoing Black Lives Matter protest against police brutality and discriminatory acts in the US. Sony had released a statement that said, “We needed to step aside so key voices could be heard during this historic and important time.”

The company has freshly announced the rescheduled date to be June 11.

The “Future of Gaming” event will be thus streamed on YouTube and Twitch at 1700 GMT (10:30 pm).
