    Gran Turismo 5 Delayed Until “This Holiday Season”

    Via the official PlayStation US Blog:

    We can confirm that Gran Turismo 5 will not be available this November 2nd, but the game’s release will be coming this holiday season.

    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.

    Expect this delay to apply to all regions around the world – I will update this post as other official sources continue to update for Europe, Asia, and Australia/NZ.

    It's really unbelievable that they keep delaying it, even though they assured us a while ago that the game would definately be released at the beginning of November. Let's hope the game will be really good.

    Money grabbing i suspect, and fair play really. Why aim for a portion of people purchasing when you can make the hype surround it right befor christmas and possibly double your sales.
    Either that or they don't want to risk losing sales to kinect which is released early november...... I think.

    They say it will be out before chrismas, so it is not a very big delay.... But if you delay 3 weeks before the release, what can be done that couldn't be done in an update?

    This is true, it is abit of a joke and very unproffesinal all these delays. Turn 10 have released 3 games in the development time of GT5.

    Weird thing is thats the game is already Gold and some site already have review versions.
    So i think its not that the game isnt finished yet but more there is a problem logistics wise. :)

    I would rather have them take the time as they have been instead of releasing games as buggy as say ummm F1 2010? :D

    I think you may be right Ivo about it being logistics, if its just a matter of timing then its a poor show by Sony as the only other AAA release that month is Call of Duty. I don't see why they would delay the release for sales reason's as it will sell in the millions no matter what time of year they sell it but November is close enough to the all important holiday season anyway. The delay so close to the announced release date is crazy. As for Polyphony's release schedule - GT4 was released in late December 2004 with Forza Motorsport following six months later so the two they have released since then Polyphony has also released Tourist Trophy, GT5 Prologue and GT PSP so its not as if all their time has been spent solely working on GT5. I hope that the 'before Christmas' date holds, judging by how good GT5 Prologue was I think GT5 will be well worth the wait but we shall have to wait and see.

    Also in F1's defence, i know someone who is close friends with senior producer of F1 2010, Paul Jeal.
    Apparently the development team were pushing Codies big wigs right upto the release of F1 2010 to delay but the consensus from Codies was, "we can't let the fans down, there expecting the game on 24th september."

    That said i hope the delay will give you GT gamers a game worth waiting for, it's been to long for me now and ive not been looking forward to it, lol.

    Very disappointing but it's coming this holiday season, so the delay is only for a couple of weeks. Hope it will be good!

    maybe it has something to do with Forza Ultimate Collection being released at teh end of October and Polyphony not wanting the release of that package to interfere with the release of GT5?! or maybe they're afraid of CoD Black Ops?

    The reason of the delay, which i read today, was that there are some bugs that still needs to be ironed and that have taken them longer than anticipated.
