Sony has announced that Gravity Rush 2 will float away from its previously-announced release date of December 2. In an update posted to the PlayStation Blog, Game Director Keiichiro Toyama has confirmed the game will now launch on January 20, 2017.

Toyama apologized to fans and promised that this extra month-and-a-half of development would give his team enough time to produce “a title we are very proud of”:

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.

I would like to apologize to all those players anxiously awaiting Gravity Rush 2. After four years of development making a title we are very proud of, we want to release it at the very best time.

In an additional apology to fans, Toyama announced that a post-launch downloadable expansion that was originally going to be sold as “premium DLC” will now be free of charge.

Gravity Rush 2 will be released for PS4 on December 2

Sony has announced that Gravity Rush 2, the gravity-bending sequel from Sony Japan Studio, will be released exclusively for the PS4 on December 2. Writing on the PlayStation Blog, Sony’s Brian Dunn tried to catch up players who might be unfamiliar with the quirky franchise:

Gravity Rush 2 marks the return of gravity shifters Kat and Raven (now a powerful ally), ex-cop Syd, and introduces a bevy of new characters. The first new face to join the expansive world of Gravity Rush 2 is the mysterious guardian angel, who shows up to help Kat when she’s in a bind, quickly dispensing of a group of pesky Nevi enemies.

Angel is a superheroine with an aggressive and wild fighting style, and packs an overwhelming punch to her attacks. She also has a crystallization ability that helps her to regenerate health instantly. Check out Angel’s abilities in the new gameplay trailer!

New and returning fans interested in the Gravity Rush universe will be happy to learn that Sony is teaming with Studio Khara to produce an anime, Gravity Rush The Animation: Overture, that bridges the gap between the first game and its sequel. More information on Gravity Rush The Animation: Overture will be revealed soon.

Finally, Sony also announced that players who pre-order Gravity Rush 2 will receive an alternate white costume for main character Kat, as well as a nine-song soundtrack.
