What’s Up PlayStation Nation,
The PlayStation 4 will be affected by yet another delay from a Sony first party studio this year. The Game Director Keiichiro Toyama went to the PlayStation Blog to announce Gravity Rush 2’s recent delay, moving the title to it’s new release date to January 20, 2017. For those that were eagerly waiting for Gravity Rush 2 this year, you will have to wait just a little but longer. This makes Gravity Rush 2, Gran Turismo Sport, and The Last Guardian all get hit with delays this year. Out of the three delays The Last Guardian was the only game to remain with the 2016 year.
Here is what was said:
“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.”
“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.”
Despite the bad news there is a silver lining when it comes to this delay for PlayStation 4 owners or Gravity Rush fans in general. Due to the longer wait time for this game, they have decided to release the premium DLC planned for the game free of change. Which is a very nice and considerable gesture in my opinion.
What are your thoughts on this recent delay on yet another first party title? Will you be picking the second iteration of Gravity Rush up next year? Let us know in the comments below.
