Sad news for fans Gravity Rush fans that were looking forward to finishing Kat’s story in Gravity Rush 2 this December, you’re going to have to wait a little longer to experience the game’s (presumably) fantastic story. Kat’s current generation adventure has been delayed worldwide until January 2017 according to an update Keiichiro Toyama provided over on the PlayStation Blog.
The team behind the game have spent a considerable amount of time working on asyonchris multiplayer functions and they want as many players as possible online at the same time.
Toyama wrote on the PlayStation Blog:
“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.”
Fans will at least get some consolation prizes to help ease the pain – the developers were planning to launch a side-story DLC pack for the game which will now be released to all players free of charge. Also Keiichiro Toyama mentioned that a special animated short will make its debut before the game’s release.
Here are the details about the DLC:
“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.”
Gravity Rush 2 is now scheduled to be released on Jan 18th in Europe, January 19th in Japan and Jan 20th in North America.
