Sony Interactive Entertainment will try again. The company plans to reveal a first glimpse of PlayStation 5 games at 1 p.m. Pacific on Thursday, June 11. This will give fans a first look at the software for the next new generation console.
Sony originally intended to hold this event on June 4, but it postponed revelation following protests against police in the United States. A week later, the publisher is ready to move forward even if protests continue. SIE compares donations to organizations that support the Black Lives Matter movement.
But the show must go on as Sony launches the PS5 this holiday. So it’s time to show fans what to look forward to.

As I mentioned earlier, Sony is using this event to focus on games from proprietary and third-party studios. Expect this revelation to focus on software that works natively on the PS5. When it comes to specific games, Sony has done a lot to prevent leaks. He really wants to wow potential customers, and the best way to do that is with a range of blockbuster games.
Of course, Sony is not the only company to move away from social unrest. Industry publishers pushed various announcements and live broadcasts to avoid stepping on the activists’ message.
I tried to keep track of the dates on my calendar on Twitter:

A notable event is Microsoft’s unexpected Xbox event in June. The company’s goal was to introduce the Xbox Lockhart for a long time and be more affordable around June 9. But she pushed those plans until August – at least for now. Microsoft does not want to go before the Sony event on Thursday.
Now that the PS5 game reveals that the livestream has a new date, things could still change at Microsoft.
