Gran Turismo 5 Release Date Confirmed for November 24th, 2010

Gran Turismo 5

The date is locked in: Gran Turismo 5 will go on sale throughout North America on Wednesday, November 24th.

That means you’ll be experiencing over 1,000 cars, including karts and select NASCAR cars, scores of tracks, the all-new Course Maker, a dynamic weather system, a robust online community, and everything else Gran Turismo 5 has to offer in less than two weeks.

Along with confirming the November 24th date, Kazunori Yamauchi, President of Polyphony Digital Inc. had this to say:

Gran Turismo 5 is an ambitious project, with challenges and complexities which have made it our version of the Apollo Space Program! When we created the original Gran Turismo back in 1997, we wanted to set a completely new precedent for the racing genre. With the technological leap onto PlayStation 3, our objective with Gran Turismo 5 was to create another great revolution which would not only satisfy our own high expectations, but would meet or even exceed the anticipation of the fans. Satisfying the loyal Gran Turismo followers is at the heart of all of our efforts, which is why it was such a difficult decision to delay the release of the game, and one which we did not take lightly. I can only apologize to everyone for making you wait so long, and I hope that when you try out the wealth of driving experiences available in Gran Turismo 5, you will not be disappointed.

Don’t forget to pre-order Gran Turismo 5 if you haven’t already to ensure your copy day one and receive a voucher for one of five free downloadable cars with a custom Stealth Model skin.

We’ll have much more on Gran Turismo between now and launch, so please stay tuned to the PlayStation Blog and the official Gran Turismo site.

It’s good to finally have a release date. Too bad I’ll be out of town on this day. I hope Gamestop holds games for a few days. Maybe I can get it on Saturday.

I have a question about GT5.
Some people are dissapointed that some tracks/cars aren’t in the game, will there be future DLC’s? And if so, are they for free? Because people like free stuff.

GT5 FTW!!!

I just found out there are only 26 tracks… I’m seriously disappointed… I hope there will be loads of DLC :/

Oh well… Good to have the game coming anyways.

Thanks Yamauchi

@184 26 tracks isn’t small by any means…and there’s a creator, no matter how simple…which does help.

Kazunori Yamauchi is a very passionate and honorable man. I love that he has open letters to the fans, and to me you need not apologize.

Arigatō Kazunori-san!

I am looking forward to playing your masterpiece of a game when it arrives in two weeks.

After 5 years the game will finally be in our hands. I’ve changed my mind about Kaz after he apologized directly to the GT fans who have been with the series since it’s beginning.

12 days, oh it’s going to be excruciating.

How is the release date “locked In”? Wasn’t it “locked In” the past 6 times the have delayed it?
I’m so disappointed in PlayStation. I bought a PS3 just for this game, like 2 years ago. In the other hand, I know I can relay on my Xbox to release the games when they say.
