Another delay for an anticipated title for us gamers. This time it’s for the latest Gran Turismo which was originally scheduled for November 15th. Polyphony Digital founder, Kazunori Yamauchi, explained the decision over on the PlayStation Blog. Essentially it boiled down to wanting expectations to be met and more time to perfect GT Sport’s formula. Yamauchi-san had this to say.
“From the start this title has been one of our most ambitious undertakings by using the latest technologies, such as physics-based rendering and sound simulations, and Scapes photo mode. In combining these features with a new Sport mode, we are offering a competitive gaming experience to truly reinvent what it means to be a racing game. We’ve been excited and humbled by the response each time that we’ve shared new gameplay with everyone.
However, as we approach our planned release date in November, we realize we need more time to perfect GT Sport, which we’ve already dedicated so much effort towards since announcing the title. We do not want to compromise the experience in any way. While we cannot confirm a new release date at this time, we are more committed than ever to making GT Sport the best Gran Turismo game to date.”
There goes our racing simulator for this holiday season. Anyone else have a backup racer? Even if not a simulating one? We’ll keep you updated when a concrete, specific date is given to Gran Turismo Sport.
