Gravity Rush 2 Online Server Shutdown Delayed

The first Gravity Rush was an action-adventure title of 2012 from Project Siren and Sony Entertainment for PlayStation Vita. Then the sequel Gravity Rush 2 came in 2017, based on a prequel anime of the same series. For some time, Sony has been meaning to shut the Gravity Rush 2’s online servers down which were set for the end of January. Back in September 2017, Sony announced to pull the plug off the servers on January 2018.

However, there's been a change of plan (or heart) now, as Sony Entertainment has most recently notified the players through a pop up announcement that they are not shutting down the online services within the previously marked deadline and in fact, they are extending the period to July 2018. The original date was exactly after one year and a day from the day of the game's release and now six more months been added to that.

Upon closing of these online services, players will not be able to invite each other on challenges or able to collect special contents, costumes and Dusty Tokens. Even without the online features, the story-driven single player mode is engaging enough to keep the players going though. Now, if Sony is withdrawing online support for the game it may also suggest that they will not be interested for a sequel either, much to the dismay of the fans.

A small band of Gravity Rush community was in line to request to Sony with tweets containing #DontForgetGravityRush hashtags to keep the online servers alive and apparently, their request has been honored even if it is for a brief extended time-frame. This of course is a huge achievement for the dedicated PlayStation 4 fan-base of the game and they are thankful for this honor because this shows that SIE Japan Studio actually saw this and cared enough to take this step.

Gravity Rush 2 is a PlayStation 4 exclusive from SIE Japan Studio and Project Siren that is available to play even though the online servers are eventually going down after a few months. Still, that should not a reason for you to stop from enjoying the other aspects of the game. Besides, some of the die-hard fans of the game still believe that the right kind of persuasion can lead Sony to reconsider their decision.
