Gravity Rush 2 Delayed to Next Year

Action-adventure game Gravity Rush 2 has been delayed to next year according to the game’s director.

In a post on Playstation Blog, game director Keiichiro Toyama announced the new release date and the reason for the delay:

“Gravity Rush 2 is the conclusion of Kat’s journey, so we want players to have enough time to dive deep into her story.

“In addition, as a lot of work went into online features that allow for asynchronous player interaction, we want as many people as possible playing the title at the same time.

“Thus, after careful deliberation, we have decided to change the release date. Gravity Rush 2 will now launch on January 20, 2017.”

Toyama cites the hectic release lineup for the delay which includes Final Fantasy XV on November 29th and Sony’s other big first party title The Last Guardian which is finally scheduled for December 6th.

This isn’t the first Sony game to be delayed out of this year either with Horizon: Zero Dawn being pushed back to next March and Grand Turismo Sport given an unspecified 2017 release date.

It’s not all bad news though as Toyama announced that the game’s premium DLC will be released free of charge to compensate players.

The original Gravity Rush was released for Playstation Vita in June 2012 and last year was remastered for Playstation 4.

The story followed Kat, a young girl who had lost her memory and who is granted the power to control gravity.
