We can confirm that Gran Turismo 5 will not be available this November 2nd, but the game’s release will be coming this holiday season.

We sincerely apologize to GT fans for the delay, however, creator Kazunori Yamauchi and the team at Polyphony Digital want to make certain they are creating the perfect racing experience, and we are confident that this ambitious game will exceed expectations when it launches.

We’ll have more information for you in the near future.

    Wow… I guess the good news is I don’t have to worry about buying so many games in the course of a month. I think companies need to wait a little bit longer than they do now before revealing games; after so long people sometimes don’t want the game as much as they did when it was announced several years before.

  • Can’t wait :D

    Perfect racing experience Coming Soon!

    November 2nd.

  • LOL Delayed again and knew it glad I didn’t pre order!!!
    Delaystaion 3 :)

  • OH COME…..wait this doesn’t affect the UK release does it??

  • noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! I hate you

  • Did you guys hire all those ex-Duke Nukem programmers?

  • SHOCKER!!!!!!!! Nothing like delaying an already overly delayed game last minute.

  • shazbot-finubus

    really?

    my heart goes out to all the GT fans out there. hopefully it will be all worth it

  • GTP_Zimmerd

    This really isn’t funny. A lot of us were counting down the days. With only 20 days to go now there’s a delay.
    I’m sorry, and we don’t even get a proper reason for the delay.
    I hope you guys give us the exact reason VERY soon Soony

  • purplestream

    come on. i thought it would be next month! what a dissapointment.

  • I’d like to know what they consider the “holiday season”. In terms of video game releases, I always thought November was part of the holiday.

    No even they would would be disappointed by this.

    This is honestly becoming on joke after another with this game. I have been waiting so long for this and its just issue after issue. All the extra BS they added to this game (like kart racing? FFS are you serious?) better be good and have deserved the delay. For all the delays gamers better be awarded with something amazing…

    I can only wait to see what happens on the DLC scene with this game as well…

  • Hmm.. this is one of those titles that they shouldn’t delay, after such a long wait. (I do think this is the first official delay though)

  • Lol! Delayed again! Not that I care about this game but it just keeps on getting delayed like crazy. It sucks for all those waiting for this game.

  • purplestream

    this isn’t funny anymore

  • VectorRaven

    Sony you guys…no words.

  • At this point all I can do is laugh. haha, wow.

  • GTP_Zimmerd

    It’s the first after last year in December, although that was a delay for the Japanese version.. Although that doesn’t matter in my mind. A delay is a delay:s And a delay so close before release comes extra hard in the balls.

  • razor_sharp84

    I guess I’ll definitely be picking up Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit now. I was really looking forward to getting GT5 on November 2.

  • My logitech G27 wheel is ready when you are. The delay don’t bother me as long the game is shipped as polished as it can be.

  • LOL again? oh well.. Quality over Quantity I guess :P

  • oh noes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Damn… you better make up for it and ensure that the experience is awesome otherwise.. nah I just love SOny, can’t do anything haha

  • 2012 maybe?

  • I’m completely baffled at this. There better be an incredibly good reason for this.

  • Sony’s Duke Nukem delayed again.

  • TheDarkestKitten

    I bet that this is more a marketing scheme by Sony than anything else…

    I want the dang game!

  • So.. delayed again.. and this holiday season we’ll hear: ‘Sorry guys, GT5 is again delayed to december 2011!’ How can you do this?

  • trounbyfire

    please market the game you have even more time to make better tv as.
    MARKET THE DANG GAME for once SONY please.

  • This is sad. But we have no choice, must just wait.

  • Seeing_Red_Again

    First Socom 4, then LittleBigPlanet 2, and now Gran Turismo 5? This is extremely ddisappointing

  • Geez, after several years of waiting and the putting up a pre-order, this is the thanks I get?? I am think I might go get my money back and cancel my order. Ive waited this long, I might just wait till someone gets tired of it and buy it used.

  • fernandolins

    Wow, seriously? Isn’t this like the 9th delay or something?
    Please, only announce games 2 weeks before release from now on.

    And you guys so owe us some amazing free DLCs for this. All this anxiety is bad for my health.

  • Dark_Vincent

    lmao another delay. This is turning into Gran Turismo Forever. Man, I feel for those GT fans out there. My friends were counting down the days with only what, 20 days left?

    Seriously, there better be a compensation for this.

  • TheDarkestKitten

    Also… I’ve held off buying so many games because I wanted to have a clean slate for GT5…

  • backbreaker65

    Well this game will not meet sales expectations, that’s for sure. Time to go for Need For Speed. PS and Sony you’re Joke!!

  • Here we go again… lol

  • This is a joke right?

  • Perfect racing experience is one thing, but “holiday season” means before the end of the year… what can be done in a few weeks that can’t be done in a post-release patch?

    The wait has been ridiculous and it’s just compounding and getting more ridiculous. Not to take anything away from what PD are doing, but 3 weeks before release isn’t the time to announce any sort of delay.

  • My second-most anticipated game of all time and I can’t even get my hands on it…..

    If it were to slip into 2011, I don’t know what I would do.

  • Not for nothing, we get a lot games with bugs that are just unfinished. I would rather wait another month then curse at the game because it freezes every 10 minutes.

  • agenthitman75

    its beyond a joke now!!!! it better not be 50quid when its released.

  • ChibiMrBubbles

    SCEA literally delays SOCOM 4, LittleBigPlanet 2, and Gran Turismo 5.

    In return? Playstation Move.

    Not. Cool.

  • It’s really annoying when a game gets pushed back a couple months, but it’s really bad when games get pushed back several years…

  • Ok another good reason to go for Hot Pursuit NFS

  • backbreaker65

    Early on people used to call Playstation 3, Delay Station because they kept telling us to wait games will come. Now this late in the console cycle and experiencing all these delays from Socom to LBP and Now GT5. DELAY STATION IT IS.

  • But I bet it has to do with the body of the new NASCAR nose next season.

  • Superstrokey1123

    Ok so are all my calendars wrong or something and its really April 1?

  • eyesofreality03

    thank godi didn’t pre order, oh well,more time in the oven means a better game …right?

  • Anyone complaining is just dense or too young to understand time. Delayed yes, but still releasing this holiday season. That means instead of releasing within 20 days, it will be releasing somewhere between 20 – 60 days. Really not the biggest deal.

  • I am lost for words….

    So close.
