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.

Fans of the Gran Turismo series have been waiting 4 years for this release. Playstation fans seem to do more waiting than playing.

@jmon LOL….Yeah XBOX is so on time with their games! (Sarcasm implied) Dude I know for a FACT that All game companies delay games, Some get outright Canceled so for you to try and tell us that MS releases all its games ontime is like telling me the Easter Bunny is real!

My expectations are low.
I learned my lesson with God of War III
I will never over-hype myself over a game, let alone anything else, ever again.

Cool, can’t wait! And Yamauchi-san, please release a patch if you find anything “not perfect” with the game…You DID create the game with that kind of functionality, right? Hey, it’s been in development since at least 2005, gotta ask haha.

Having woken up to this news is a great way to start a day; a sigh of relief. Excited and stoked about Gran Turismo 5 finally coming out on the 24th of November. I see great numbers and great momentum coming in for both GT5 and the PS3. Rock on.
