Sony has announced today on the Japanese PlayStation site that it will be turning off the online features for Gravity Rush 2, barely a year after the game has released. Why? Well, we imagine it’s because there just aren’t enough people using the game’s servers to make it a worthwhile endeavour, financially speaking.
That means that from January 18th, 2018, you won’t be able to do anything related to the game’s online components. That means you won’t be able to get the Platinum trophy if you haven’t already. So, take this as your notice: you’ve got just under three months to Platinum Gravity Rush 2 before it becomes a blight on your otherwise pristine trophy collection.
In all seriousness, this is a pretty shitty move by Sony and it’s not even a one-off. We’ve already seen The Tomorrow Children get the same treatment, so what’s next? It seems that if a game isn’t making bank, Sony has no problem screwing over its customers. Hey, call us harsh, but at least we don’t pull the plug when we don’t reach our revenue targets…
