Gran Turismo 5 Hit By Further Dealys

Sony has announced that the highly anticipated Gran Turismo 5 game will not be ready to launch in November as planned.

The news comes as a bit of a shock for the industry and excited gamers alike, who have been eagerly waiting for the game since it was unveiled back in 2006.

The Japanese gaming giant had previously confirmed that the racing game will be released on 3 November. However, the company now says that the launch will be delayed in Europe, as well as Japan and North America.

The game is still said to be launching "this holiday season", but Sony is yet to confirm what the revised launch date may be.

A Sony spokesperson said in a statement to MCV: “We sincerely apologise to GT fans for the delay, however creator Kazunori Yamauchi and the team at Polyphony Digital want to make certain they are creating a racing experience of the highest quality.”
