Cyberpunk 2077 developers CD Projekt RED have announced that their planned Night City Wire livestream for the game is being pushed back from June 11th until June 25th.

Posting to Twitter, the Polish studio reiterated that they were still very much excited to show fans everything they've been working on as we gear up to the game's release on September 17th, but that "more important discussions are happening right now and we want them to be heard". You can read the full statement below, or follow the link here.

The decision to push the livestream back comes as a response to the ongoing unrest in the United States and around the world over the killing of George Floyd by a police officer on the streets of Minneapolis, Minnesota.

CD Projekt RED are not the only ones in the gaming industry to put a stopper in their plans for the immediate future, with both Sony and Activision postponing the PlayStation 5 reveal and the release of Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare's Season 4 update, respectively.

Next week was meant to be the industry's annual video game convention E3, which was itself postponed for a year due to the Coronavirus pandemic still sweeping the globe. As a workaround, many game publishers and developers opted to do online-only presentations this year, instead of gathering en-masse in the Los Angeles Convention Centre, as has been the case in the past. It remains to be seen if (and when) these will still go ahead.

As things stand, Cyberpunk 2077 is still scheduled to release as planned on September 17th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, with an upgraded version for Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 coming at a later date.
