Gravity Rush 2 Server Shutdown Pushed Back 6 Months

Possibly a result of community protest.

Gravity Rush 2, the action RPG sequel, will be pushing back the server shutdown date by six months.

The game release almost exactly a year ago. Low sales and little reception led to Sony announcing last September that the online servers for the game will be shutting down on January 18 of this year. This was quickly met with a community outcry called the #DontForgetGravityRush campaign.

Sony has changed the date of the shutdown to July 18 at 10 pm PT, six months later than previously planned. This was announced via an in-game notification.

This means players have more time to enjoy the social elements of the game. Once the servers close, such features like sending challenges, treasure hunts, and photo ghosts will be no longer be available. The game will still be playable offline, at least.

For game servers to shut down only one year after release is incredibly unfortunate. When you compare it to WipeOut HD for example, which is also closing their online servers this year. The difference is that WipeOut HD released 10 years ago, compared to Gravity Rush 2's one year.

My sympathies go out to the Gravity Rush fans out there. At least we have half a year to enjoy those sweet treasure hunts.
