In many parts of the United States, there are strong protests against violence and discrimination against the black community after police officers assassinated George Floyd for the use of excessive force in an attempt to arrest him. Given this, the community has come together in one voice under the slogan “Black Lives Matter” and the video game industry has been in favour of the movement.

Amid the protests that are taking place in various parts of the United States, video game companies such as Sony, Microsoft, Naughty Dog, and other major studios are showing their support through social networks in order to demonstrate racism, a problem that is rooted not only in the United States but in various parts of the world.

In case you don’t know, EA Sports was supposed to formally reveal Madden NFL 21 today, with an exclusive look at the gameplay. The company is aware of the crucial situation that is being experienced in the United States and in the world, so it decided to postpone the disclosure in protest.

“Being silent about the violence and racism Black people experience is being complicit. We stand in solidarity today and every day with the Black community,” said the Japanese company, which even postponed the event to reveal the PlayStation 5 games.

So far there are many entertainment companies that have joined the initiative, which we leave below.

“Now is not the time for any of us to be silent. For too long have too many suffered under a systematic problem in America, ”reads Naughty Dog’s message.

Riot Games says “Silence is not an option.”

And there are more examples given by Microsoft, Activision Blizzard, Twitch, Bethesda, Star Wars, and Marvel below.
