Last month we learned that the PS4’s Gravity Rush 2 would not be making its late 2016 release, with the developers needing just a little more time to optimize the game. However, less than a month later we’re now hearing that the game has gone gold, meaning that principle development has been completed and the manufacturing and distribution phase can now begin.
Despite the game going gold over two months before its current release date, the game’s release date will not change. This may be due to the fact that the game was originally going to release during a pretty packed holiday season, and the game’s new release date will give it more of a chance to sell well.
The sequel picks up right where the first game left off, with Kat and her friend Raven coming back for more of the gravity-defying action featured in the first game. The gravity-controlling mechanics have been expanded in the sequel, however, as there are now 3 different gravity styles to choose from. The first game’s style will return, but it will be accompanied by the Lunar and Jupiter styles.
Gravity Rush 2 will launch exclusively for PlayStation 4 on January 20th, 2017. At the beginning of this year the first game was remastered on PS4, and you can check out our review of it by clicking right here.
