If you were planning on defying the laws of physics this December, think again. We’ve seen Gravity Rush 2 delayed out of its initial release date and in to mid-January 2017.
In an official Playstation Blog post, SIE Japan Studio stated: “the landscape for that release date has changed dramatically”. This is in regards to the news, as stated above, that we’ve seen Gravity Rush 2 delayed.
The company goes on to express the reasoning behind the delay, noting that Gravity Rush 2 is the “conclusion of Kat’s journey, so we want players to have enough time to dive deep into her story”.
SIE Japan also pointed to online features, specifically “asynchronous player interaction”, as something that needs to be done right before its launch. “Thus, after careful deliberation, we have decided to change the release date. Gravity Rush 2 will now launch on 18th January 2017 in Europe and 20th January in the UK”.
By way of an apology, the studio are offering their premium story DLC for free:
“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”.
With more game information and an animated feature on the way, Gravity Rush fans won’t be left out in the cold too long. Christmas without your Kat is bound to cause some disappointment though.

How do you feel about Gravity Rush? Are you excited for the release, or disappointed by the delay? Let it out down south in our comments section.
We’ve reviewed the remaster of Gravity Rush back in early 2016. It felt unique and I’m sad to hear Kat’s tale is coming to a close in its sequel. Nevertheless, there seems to be plenty of Kat in the upcoming installment. The delay can only benefit the eventual release.
