Sony Delays PlayStation 4’s ‘Gran Turismo Sport’ to 2017

Forza Horizon 3 is the only new racer coming this fall. . .

With the exception of The Last Guardian, we have minimal interest on new exclusive titles releasing for PlayStation 4 this holiday season. While the same can be said about the Xbox One outside of Forza Horizon 3 and Gears of War, Sony sees another delay for arguably their biggest fall release.

Today, founder of Polyphony Digital, Kazunori Yamauchi, broke news this morning that Gran Turismo Sport would be delayed to 2017. The creator of the series cited that he and his team at P.D. need a little bit more time past the original November roll-out to perfect GT Sport – which we’re sure a polished final product is something that all lovers of the franchise would rather prefer.

If you’re limited to just PS4 this fall and need a racing fix, our suggestion would be purchase the discounted racer DRIVECLUB on the PS+ store for $7.99 before the sale ends.

Take a look at the statement below.

Gran Turismo Sport Update

Hello GT Community — 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.
