“While we understand gamers worldwide are excited to see PS5 games, we do not feel that right now is a time for celebration,” the PlayStation team said in a tweeted message.“For now, we want to stand back and let more important voices be heard.”The move comes amid rising violence and racial tensions in response to the police killing of 46-year-old African American George Floyd in an incident captured on video.
