GT5 Delayed Again, Will Still Hit "This Holiday Season"
Well, at least it can still be a big holiday title but even so...this probably won't go over well.
We were first told the next issue of Game Informer wouldn't feature the Gran Turismo 5 review because the game "had been delayed in the US." We started to hear similarly depressing things from across the pond in Europe and now, it has been confirmed at the PlayStation Blog: GT5 will not make its supposedly written-in-stone launch date of November 2 in North America. The silver lining is that it can't be a very long delay, as they say the hotly anticipated simulator "will be coming this holiday season." As posted by SCEA producer Taku Imasaki:
"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."
Exceed expectations? At this point? That might not be possible. Anyway, we've also heard the new date should arrive on our doorstep before October is out, so stay tuned. If it comes out in December, maybe that isn't a bad thing...we can't really think of anything huge for that month, and it removes GT5 from November, where Call of Duty: Black Ops and Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood can reign.
Still...it's not exactly good news.
