We expect that there are a fair few of you out there, who are still waiting on news of the release date of Sony’s Gran Turismo 5. Recent indications show that the racing game will now be launched nearer to Christmas. As well as disappointment being felt amongst gaming enthusiasts, developers for the game Polyphony Digital and Sony executives are also voicing their opinions.
According to Softpedia, news of delays filtered through only yesterday. In a recent tweet from Kazonuri Yamauchi, Gran Turismo’s game lead designer, it read, “It’s because time and labour were spent ironing the kinks out of the games complex system. I’m really sorry. Everyone, it’s inexcusable.. Wait a little longer.” This follows on with a feeling of sadness for consumers having to hold fire!
In such a bold decision being made to delay the game, Taku Imasaki, the game’s executive producer has commented that “We’re really close, but this was an executive decision that was made yesterday. Realistically, we thought we had a good date. We’re not happy over here.” He went on to say that Sony is now, “Shooting for it to be out by the holidays. You won’t see too much more delay.”
In the game’s new offering, you will see some 100 new tracks, 20 different locations, night racing will become available for GT5, new weather conditions, as well as new vehicles such as Lamborghini, Bugatti, Ferrari’s new 458 Italia and Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG “gullwing”.
