Gravity Rush 2 – Everything You Need to Know

Few titles understood the PlayStation Vita quite like Gravity Rush. Japan Studio’s mind-bending adventure game was released at a time when players were still getting to grips with Sony’s flagship handheld — the gyroscope, the accelerometer, that damned rear touchpad — but by embracing said quirks, Gravity Rush became an early showcase of Vita’s capabilities, and it’s fair to say that the PlayStation faithful quickly took a shine to Kat and her astral feline, Dusty. Sony wasted no time in announcing a sequel, but it was only after the PS4 launch of Gravity Rush Remastered that the platform-holder confirmed Gravity Rush 2 to be real. There is one small caveat to the follow-up: Kat and Dusty have officially left PS Vita behind in favor of the PlayStation 4. Creating Gravity Rush 2 solely for PS4 allowed for a bigger and more ambitious title, it seems, and Sony’s own Shuhei Yoshida believes fans will understand exactly why Japan Studio skipped PS Vita come release. And so, in anticipation of its PS4 launch on January 20 (January 18 for those in Europe), we’ve scoured the four corners of the Internet — and the PSLS archives — to compile Everything You Need to…

Gravity Rush 2 Release Date Delayed to January 20, 2017

Despite production “proceeding smoothly,” Sony Interactive Entertainment announced today that Gravity Rush 2 for PlayStation 4 has been delayed to January 18, 2017 in Europe and January 20, 2017 in North America. Since giving the previous November/December 2016 launch date earlier this year, “the landscape for that release date has changed dramatically,” with titles like Final Fantasy XV, The Last Guardian, Steep, and more crowding up the holiday schedule. As a result, Sony has decided to delay Gravity Rush 2 to 2017, with Game Director Keiichiro Toyama explaining: In July, we announced a release date for Gravity Rush 2 that we felt most appropriate for the title. Since then, though production is proceeding smoothly, the landscape for that release date has changed dramatically. 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.
