Unfortunately, the library of games that the PlayStation 5 could launch with will be a mystery for a bit longer. Sony has announced that it has postponed its “A Look at the Future of Gaming on PS5” event, which was set for June 4, due to the crazy stuff that’s going on across the country right now.

“We have decided to postpone the PlayStation 4 event scheduled for June 4,” lamented Sony. “While we understand gamers worldwide are exciting to see PS5 games, we do not feel that right now is a time for celebration and for now, we want to stand back and allow more important voices to be heard.”

It isn’t clear when the event will resurface – assuming Sony hasn’t scrapped it entirely, that is. The company did suggest that it had multiple events lined up, so it might more sense to roll this show into another.

The “Future of Gaming” event was originally announced on Friday by Sony Interactive Entertainment President & CEO Jim Ryan, who promised a first look at the games that PlayStation fans would be able to enjoy with the launch of his company’s next-gen console.

“This digital showcase will run for a bit more than an hour and, for the first time, we will all be together virtually experiencing the excitement together,” he explained. “A lack of physical events has given us an amazing opportunity to think differently and bring you on this journey with us, and hopefully, closer than ever before. This is part of our series of PS5 updates and, rest assured, after next week’s showcase, we will still have much to share with you.”
