Well I guess we shouldn’t be too surprised with this news. When Sony stated at E3 this year that Gran Tursimo had an official launch date of November 2nd, gamers everywhere were quite excited considering most have been waiting since the launch of the PS3 for this game to come out but many still were not too sure knowing how GT5 has seen it’s delays in the past. Well that concern came true as Sony stated on their official 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.
Now “holiday season” can mean many things and that is we could see this by Christmas or even as late as the first quarter of 2011.
Stay tuned as I will have more info on Gran Turismo 5′s new launch date as it becomes available.
