Following recent affairs in the United States. A variety of businesses, entrepreneurs, and media outlets have expressed concern for the black community. The latest to support the campaign is IGN.

Summer of Gaming Delayed

IGN has confirmed that the Summer of Gaming 2020 activities have been delayed from their original launch date of 4 June until 8 June. IGN stated sympathy with the Black community during the ongoing international war as a justification for the postponement.

Although June has historically been a major gaming month. Though the current situation in the U.S. is asking for something larger. Expect more delays and changes to tackle these tough times.

IGN has moved back the launch of its Summer of Gaming festival from June 5 to June 8. “Out of reverence for and solidarity for those who reasonably seek fairness and reform around the United States and the globe.”
