Maybe it’s just the nostalgia talking, but it seems like video games used to come out when they were supposed to. Not anymore. In this console generation, delayed video games are starting to become an expected part of the development cycle, just like the occasional buggy release. A ton of games that were slated for release have been pushed back for a variety of reasons. What big upcoming games have been delayed? Read on to find out.
1. Gravity Rush 2
Original release date: December 2, 2016
New release date: January 20, 2017
In the PS Vita game Gravity Rush, you play as a woman who can defy the laws of gravity, which means she can “fall” in any direction she chooses. This sequel will conclude the story begun in the original, but you’ll have to wait a little longer to play it. Based on a blog post by the developer, it sounds like Sony scooted the game to 2017 not because of any development issues, but to get it out of the way of the other big games releasing around that time. It’s probably a smart call, seeing as this game could easily be drowned out by all the heavy hitters launching around that time, including The Last Guardian and Final Fantasy XV.
