Sony Interactive Entertainment announced that Polyphony Digital’s upcoming competitive racer, Gran Turismo Sport, has been delayed after its initial November release dates.
The original plan was to release Gran Turismo Sport in November 15 in North America, November 16 in Europe, and November 18 in the UK, but Polyphony Digital announced that they’ll need more time to perfect the racing game. Here’s their message from the PlayStation.Blog:
Hello GT community. I want to share the news that we have made the difficult decision to delay the release of Gran Turismo Sport. GT Sport is Polyphony‘s foremost competitive gaming title, with high expectations from both the fans and from within our team.
From the start, the title has been one of our most ambitious undertakings, 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 we’ve shared new gameplay with everyone.
However, as we approach our planned release date in November, we realise we need more time to perfect GT Sport, to which we’ve already dedicated so much effort to since announcing the title, and do not want to compromise the experience. 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.
