I know everyone is frustrated with this news, specially the avid fans of Gran Turismo. The release of the highly popular sports car racing for the Sony Playstation 3 had been delayed once more. Sony Playstation 3 blog announced that Gran Turismo 5 release will be delayed further.
Gran Turismo 5 is previously scheduled for a November 2010 release but game developers seems to have find some bugs and game issues which made them decide to delay the release.
Everyone was annoyed including me, because I’m really excited to get a copy of GT5 next month. I hope this is the last delay and the release date will not be moved anymore.
As you all know, GT5 was suppose to be released on March 2010, but Sony Computer Entertainment announced last January 2010 that it will be delayed and the new release date is TBA.
The release date was moved to November 2011 and again it was delayed. The new release date is yet to be announced. Most probably it will be moved to the first or second quarter of 2011.
Here is the official announcement from Sony Playstation as posted at the Sony’s Playstation Blog
We can confirm that Gran Turismo 5 will not be available this November 2nd, but the game’s release will be coming this holiday season.
We sincerely apologize to GT fans for the delay, however, creator Kazunori Yamauchi and the team at Polyphony Digital want to make certain they are creating the perfect racing experience, and we are confident that this ambitious game will exceed expectations when it launches.
We’ll have more information for you in the near future.
