Gravity Rush director Keiichiro Toyama has said he would like Sony to port the franchise to PC so it could reach a new audience. Toyama, one of the founders of Bokeh Game Studio and currently working on Slitterhead, said he would also be happy to work with Sony if they ever decide to make another Gravity Rush game as well.
Transfer Gravity Rush to PC
Toyama told Gravity Rush Centralas noted by ResetEra, that it would be “a good thing to open up the game to more users” by porting Gravity Rush to PC. This would also allow Gravity Rush 2 to run at 60 fps. Whether Sony thinks it’s a good thing is another matter entirely. So far, Sony has ported Horizon Zero Dawn, Days Gone, and God of War to PC with Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection later this year. These are all bigger and arguably more popular titles. There’s also a whole list of others fans would love to see ported to PC that will likely be higher on Sony’s priority list (*cough* Bloodborne *cough*).
Despite garnering positive reviews and a devoted fan base, Gravity Rush was never a big hit. The first title sold 200,000 copies on PlayStation Vita before being remastered for PS4. Sales figures for the PS4 version of Gravity Rush or Gravity Rush 2 are not available, but it certainly wasn’t a million-selling game. Still, Toyama said he would “obviously want” to work on a new Gravity Rush title, although it would be challenging at Bokeh Game Studio because “there are several things to keep in mind as a start-up”. However, the chances of a new title ever getting the green light are slim, especially since Japan Studio and Team Gravity have been shut down.
In other news, players without a PlayStation Plus membership will be able to enjoy a free Online Multiplayer Weekend on PS5 and PS4 starting February 12. Elsewhere, Horizon Forbidden West is launching with a variety of options to make the game as accessible as possible.
