Gamers are expected to finally find out when Gran Turismo 5 will be launched in the coming days as a Sony spokesperson is reported as saying “a new date will be announced by the end of the month.”
Given that we are just a few days shy of the month’s end, the claim, reported by games blog VG247, would hint to a launch date for the repeatedly delayed racing sim being announced before Monday.
Originally pegged for release on November 3rd, Sony revealed on an online blog earlier this month that the title that has been five years and $60 million in the making would no longer be making an early November arrival yet would, however, still be making its appearance pre-Christmas.
The official release read: “We are sorry to say that Gran Turismo 5 will not be available on the previously announced release date of November 3rd, but the game will be released before Christmas. We sincerely apologise to GT fans for the delay, however creator Kazunori Yamauchi and the team at Polyphony Digital want to make certain they are creating a racing experience of the highest quality."
T3 gave the eagerly awaited title its first free UK consumer outing last week at a reader event at Selfridges’ London Oxford Street store to much acclaim.
