Put another game on the list that won’t make it out in 2016. Gravity Rush 2 has been pushed to January 20th, 2017 from it’s original date of December 2nd of this year. It’s not clear why it was pushed back a little over a month, but Sony released a statement on the PlayStation Blog that read.
“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.”
It seems that Sony wanted to intentionally miss the Holiday season. The statement above points toward getting out of the way of the big Holiday releases. To soften the blow Sony will be releasing the premium DLC for free. It was not detailed what was in the DLC, but it’s a nice gesture.
