Two Big Gaming Events Step Back

The upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 Night City Wire stream and IGN Summer of Gaming event are both going to be delayed past their respective intended launch dates.

With E3 2020 canceled, several gaming events have sprung up to take its place. Some game developers have elected to run their own dedicated media streams similar to Nintendo Directs. On the other side of the aisle, some gaming news websites have decided to put together their own events of all sizes.

CD Projekt Red and IGN both had events planned for early June 2020. Now, however, each company has independently come to the same conclusion and decided to delay these highly-anticipated virtual gaming events for some time.

When Will the Cyberpunk 2077 Night City Wire Debut?

Originally, the Cyberpunk 2077 Night City Wire was scheduled to debut on June 11, 2020. CD Projekt RED has now announced plans to push back the reveal of this stream to a date two weeks later.

"We decided to move Night City Wire to Jun 25th," stated a tweet from the official Cyberpunk 2077 account. "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."

When Does IGN Summer of Gaming Start?

According to the schedule posted by IGN, this massive event was intended to kick off on June 4, 2020. It has now been delayed a few days.

"Out of respect for an in support of those rightfully demanding justice and change across the United States and the world, IGN will be delaying the launch of its Summer of Gaming main events until June 8, 2020," the news site said in a tweet.


While the Cyberpunk 2077 Night City Wire and IGN Summer of Gaming delays are certainly understandable, odds are these won't be the only events that we see getting pushed back in the coming days.
