Gravity Rush 2 Severs Shutting Down Next Month
After word popped up yesterday that the Gravity Rush 2 servers had been shut down yesterday, it looks like Sony has delayed the rollout of the shutdown, and will now be cutting off the servers next month on July 18th, meaning that any ability to gain the game’s “Dusty Tokens” will be gone.
Initially slated to be shut down in January, a fan campaign led by the hashtag #DontForgetGravityRush on Twitter caused enough attention to have the server shutdown delayed. Now, however, the shutdown will occur as originally planned, so if you’ve yet to play the game or get too deep into it, you don’t have very long. For more on the shutdown, check out the original note that the development team at Team Gravity (comprised of members of SIE Japan Studio and Project Siren) left regarding the game:
