Just earlier this morning, developer CD Projekt Red announced that the coming Night City Wire scheduling for next week has been postponed to the latter of June in efforts to give protestors the stage to amplify their voice when its needed most to be heard. While the contents of the presumed showcase is unknown for how much will be spared regarding Cyberpunk 2077, it is a bold move for the team to enact in favor of American protestors.

Now, publisher Capcom has also decided to act as well alongside the activists already on the streets of major American cities by announcing that the annual titular Pro Tour Online will be postponed to support those looking for change against African Americans.

“We at Capcom support Black communities and everyone who is standing against racism and fighting for equality for all,” Capcom shares in the letterhead on Twitter this morning. “We understand there are bigger, more important voices that deserve to be heard right now, and the spotlight belongs to them.”

Reflecting on other motives that teams have released on the subject of supporting Black Lives Matters, Sony Interactive Entertainment has also revealed its coming PlayStation 5 presentation would be postponed to an unspecified date. Knowledge regarding its first-party lineup and essentially the appearance of the console will be withheld until the message gets across for those supporting the movement for Black Americans.

Elsewhere, EA Sports also decided to act as well by announcing that the Monday-scheduled showcase for Madden NFL 21 would be pushed for the same efforts. You can read the full report by heading here.
