IGN's Summer of Gaming Event Delayed!

IGN has pushed back the start of its Summer of Gaming event from June 5 to June 8, "out of respect for and in support of those rightfully demanding justice and change across the United States and the world."

The IGN delay follows similar postponements of events being held by Sony and CD Projekt, spurred by ongoing protests against police violence and anti-black racism across the US and around the world.

The protests have been ongoing since the 25 May killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police officer David Chauvin, and have been met with violent crackdowns by police and National Guard units. Chauvin has been charged, though the three officers who stood by while Floyd was killed have not been.
