According to the Official PlayStation Blog, Gran Turismo 5 has officially been delayed by Polyphony Digital to a later date this Holiday season. Surprisingly enough, no later date was given, and gamers are expected to just tough it out with the release window being ‘Holiday Season.”
Apparently this delay is going down because the developers still aren’t happy with the end result of the game, despite stating numerous times in the past that the title is finished and could be released that very day. This delay is either a result of a poor product that isn’t going to live up to the expectations of the fanbase nor the expectations of the publisher or its a result of just bad business.
Gran Turismo 5 is beginning to feel a lot like Duke Nukem Forever at this point and I’m pretty sure most gamers are growing tired of this happening. I’m aware it has only been delayed once before ‘officially,’ but come on — it’s been in development forever.
We’ll let you know if Sony ever decides to drop a real release date for this phantom title.
