IGN was supposed to kick off their Summer of Gaming 2020 event on June 4th, but now the company is pushing things back to June 8th, 2020. Check out their full statement on the delay below.
We stand in solidarity with the Black community and condemn racism.
Out of respect for and in support of those rightfully demanding justice and change across the United States and the world, IGN will be delaying the launch of its Summer of Gaming main events until June 8.
Today, IGN is participating in Blackout Tuesday, a day of reflection, action, and commitment to meaningful change. IGN will be driving donations to support the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, an organization that supports legal action and long-term change, including on our daily live news show NG+.
Our sister company, Humble Bundle, has announced a $1 million fund dedicated to helping publish games by Black developers.
This is a start, but we are committed to driving long-term change. We will have more updates on how we will continue to support the fight for justice.
