Electronic Arts has delayed its EA Play Live showcase by a week to Thursday, June 18.
In a statement, the publisher said: “With the important conversations taking place and important voices being heard around the world right now, we’re moving our time to come together in play.”
The digital event – initially planned for June 11 – will begin streaming at 4 pm PST / 7 pm EST / midnight UK and deliver “world premieres, news and more”.
It will be broadcast on EA’s website and take place seven days after what would have been the week of E3 2020, which was cancelled in March amid concerns over the coronavirus.
Electronic Arts had previously delayed a planned Madden NFL reveal in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
Virtually every major games firm has pledged its support for the anti-racism protests around the world, including The Last of Us Part 2 studio Naughty Dog, Doom publisher Bethesda and PlayStation parent Sony.
