Sony is “Waiting for the Right Time to Unveil” New Gravity Rush

gravity rush 06-20-15-1

It seems like we’re not going to hear about the status of the new Gravity Rush project for at least another trade show.

With E3 2015 come and gone, Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida let out a small update (of sorts) for the upcoming game. When speaking on a GameSpot stream at E3, Yoshida explained the lack of a full reveal for the game:

“That’s another project that we’re waiting for the right time to unveil. I’ve been playing the game for some time.”

To be clear – Yoshida differentiated between the game being an outright sequel, and just a “new game,” like the original reveal was titled. For now, we still don’t know the real nature of this new project, but it’s certainly interesting to see Yoshida say that he’s been playing it already.

Previously, we learned of a Gravity Rush Remaster title being rated, making us believe the original is coming to Playstation 4. Maybe a sequel will be announced alongside the remaster? We’ll keep you guys posted.

    Well right around now would be nice Sony. It’s almost like you’ve shoved the vita and all new IPs you made for it aside

    More Gravity Rush is always welcome. Shame it would most likely be on PS4. Before Tearaway Gravity Rush was the Vita defining game.

    Got the first for 80 cents, hope I didn’t get ripped off.

    I hope it comes to Vita, it’s been falling behind a bit, new software wise for a while now. Not that I’m lacking things to play on it mind, I’ve been catching up on my backlog and playing some old PSP games I missed first time around.
    Plus Freedom Wars has been giving me the eye on PS Store as well.

    I can understand why, Sony doesn’t wanna announce Gravity Rush among Shenmue 3 and FFVII Remastered since, it would most likely drove in the new about those 2

    Recently started Freedom Wars, the gameplay beats the Vita’s other hunting offerings in my opinion, though of course there was no way it was touching Soul Sacrifice for story and presentation

    what better time than now when they’re on the verge of giving up on vita? If they’re planning to make it ps4 only, it doesnt matter WHEN they finally reveal it, people will be very pissed

    It will be PS4 only. The fact Yoshida said no AAA games are in the pipeline for the PSV is a direct confirmation the game was moved to a different platform. More than likely, we will finally get the bad news during TGS~.

    It won’t be for the PSV. Yoshida already said there are no new AAA games for the PSV being worked on. Which literally means this game will be on PS4 / PS3~.

    Let’s just hope that the immense negative feedback they’ll get over it will convince them to put it where it belongs

    “That’s another project that we’re waiting for the right time to unveil. I’ve been playing the game for some time.”

    I like to imagine that Yoshida has the completed game already and he’s playing it on his couch. Every once in a while, he’ll call up another executive and ask “can we release this thing yet? It’s really fun” and then bluntly get told “no”.

    yeah. At this point, I think Uncharted: GA will be the only “high profile” exclusive Vita has left. Almost every other western game has a PS3/4 counterpart at this point, or is a port (updated or otherwise) of an existing game. It’s kinda sad, especially compared to all the exclusives on its predecessor.

    To be honest, if you check forums you’ll see most people are of the mentality “Oh hey, don’t complain at least more people get to play the game”. The Playstation community isn’t particularly known for displaying solidarity towards each others~.

    Vita is a legacy platform for Sony.

    Ah, but one can always dream. A dream where Sony is actually smart enough to push a handheld device with a lot of potential instead of throwing it away at the first sign of struggle.
