Sony is in no rush to release the upcoming sequel
PlayStation 4 exclusive Gravity Rush 2 was set to release in December, but has now been pushed back to January 20 2017. Gravity Rush 2‘s game director Keiichiro Toyama posted on the PlayStation Blog updating the situation with the game’s release date:
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.
As an apology, Sony has decided that the DLC for Gravity Rush 2 will now be free when it releases:
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.
