Gran Turismo 5 Has A New Release Date

by on November 12, 2010

No, you haven’t gone crazy. Gran Turismo 5 does indeed have a new release date! The highly anticipated PlayStation 3 title will hit shelves simultaneously in the UK and US on November 24th 2010…as long as everything goes to plan.

Nothing is 100% guaranteed when it comes to Polyphony Digital’s driving simulator, but seeing as the game finally went gold a few weeks back, we fully expect to be racing around in the worlds finest vehicles on November 24th.

Included in the press release is an apology and explanation for the delays so far.

“Gran Turismo 5 is an ambitious project, with challenges and complexities which have made it our version of the Apollo Space Programme!” commented Kazunori Yamauchi, President of Polyphony Digital Inc. “When we created the original Gran Turismo back in 1997, we wanted to set a completely new precedent for the racing genre. With the technological leap onto PlayStation 3, our objective with GT5 was to create another great revolution which would not only satisfy our own high expectations, but would meet or even exceed the anticipation of the fans. Satisfying the loyal Gran Turismo followers is at the heart of all of our efforts, which is why it was such a difficult decision to delay the release of the game, and one which we did not take lightly. I can only apologise to everyone for making you wait so long, and I hope that when you try out the wealth of driving experiences available in Gran Turismo 5, you will not be disappointed.”

We guess it is true…good things come to those who wait!
