Keiichiro Toyama recently took to the PlayStation.blog to announce that Gravity Rush 2 will be delayed to January 18th for Europe, January 19th for Japan, and January 20th for both North America and the UK. Gravity Rush 2 will be for PS4 and will be available early next year.
The news that comes in today regarding the crazy gravity bending game, Gravity Rush 2, comes in directly from Game Director Keiichiro Toyama who took to the PlayStation.blog to announce the project’s new release dates.
Looking over to Toyama’s post, he noted that production is proceeding smoothly and the landscape for the game’s release date has “changed dramatically.” Obviously he is referring to some of the games set to release during Gravity Rush 2‘s original launch date. You can read some of his post explaining the game’s 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.”
Additionally, there’s probably more factors that play into the game’s delay that we don’t know about at the moment, but either way we get an apology and something special from the devs when the game releases, as noted below:
“I would like to apologize to all those players anxiously awaiting Gravity Rush 2. After four years of development making a title we are very proud of, we want to release it at the very best time.”
“In exchange for the longer wait, we have decided to release the premium DLC planned for the title free of charge. This additional story will take place in the world of Gravity Rush 2 and we think fans will have a lot of fun playing through it.”
To compensate fans who have to wait until next year during January to play Gravity Rush 2, new DLC will be waiting for gamers for free.
Gravity Rush 2 will be delayed to January 18th for Europe, January 19th for Japan, and January 20th for North America and the UK. Seeing that gravity isn’t in a rush, you can hold yourself over by reading Toyama’s post on the PlayStation.blog.
