During GameSpot’s E3 live coverage, Gravity Rush 2 Producer Nick Accordino gave a couple of interesting pieces of information on the game.
We learn that the while story of the Gravity Rush series was completed before the first game came out. The first Gravity Rush was always supposed to be the first half of the story, and the team has always been planning a sequel with the second part. Figuring out what to do with the PS4 caused the second part to take a little longer to be realized into an actual game.
On top of that, according to Accordino (pun not intended), Gravity Rush 2 is the conclusion of Kat’s story, even if it’s impossible for now to say whether the IP will continue afterwards in some form or not.
Last, but not least, Accordino promised a release this year, and mentioned that more info will come in the next few weeks.
