Polyphony Digital founder Kazunori Yamauchi has confirmed the upcoming Gran Turismo Sport title for PlayStation 4 has been delayed until 2017. Initially due to ship in just two months time, Polyphony Digital have taken the big decision to delay release until 2017 while the studio iron out some last minute concerns with the game. Although delayed until next year, Polyphony have confirmed a version of the game will continue to be shown at various gaming events around the world, while a new release date has yet to be revealed. Read the full statement from Kazunori Yamauchi below: "I am sharing some news today that we have made the difficult decision to delay the release of Gran Turismo Sport to 2017. GT Sport is Polyphony’s foremost competitive gaming title, with high expectations from both the fans and from within our team. From the start this title has been one of our most ambitious undertakings by using the latest technologies, such as physics-based rendering and sound simulations, and Scapes photo mode. In combining these features with a new Sport mode, we are offering a competitive gaming experience to truly reinvent what it means to be a racing game. We’ve been excited and humbled by the response each time that we’ve shared new gameplay with everyone. However, 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. We do not want to compromise the experience in any way. While we cannot confirm a new release date at this time, we are more committed than ever to making GT Sport the best Gran Turismo game to date. GT Sport will continue to be shown at several gaming events around the world. I hope everyone has the opportunity to experience first-hand the yet-to-be revealed cutting edge experiences that will be achieved by GT Sport. Thank you for all your continued support."
