The much anticipated game, Gran Turismo Sport, was set to be released in November 2016, but will now be delayed. The exact date of release is yet to be determined, but they have said hopefully sometime in 2017.
Kazunori Yamauchi, Founder of Polyphony Digital, and Creator of Gran Turismo has said:
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
He also goes on to talk about how GT Sport is the most ambitious game they have ever made. It features PlayStation VR support, a much more in-depth photomode called Scapes, an eSports ranking system, and much more.
I admire their innovation, and can see there is definitely a lot more work to do than the average game. However, I am definitely disappointed that GT Sport will not release in 2016, yet I am not shocked at all. If you have been following the Gran Turismo series for as long as I have you would of expected at least one delay. I am sure that is also why they didn’t give a new exact 2017 date. It would of missed that one too…
Currently, Amazon still has the GT Sport pre-order listed as November 2016, but I expect that to change shortly.
