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

Alex Armour's Avatar Posted by Senior Manager, Public Relations

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.

Grrr….can’t you please push it back to December 3rd!? I hauled my racing wheel all the way up to college, and now I’ll have to haul it back home to use it day one, and idk if Amazon will hole up the release day shipping since it’s holiday. Plus it’ll be too late to pre-order for the 24th when I get back on the 22nd. What were the chances that, after so many years, the release date would fall on such a bad day. ARGH!

I completely understand why they delayed it. Im cool with that, I am cool with out they are handling the communication with us, But what still ****** me off is the fact that I have the Playstation +. and No KZ3 beta No LBP2 Beta, I preordered the collectors edition. At the very very least they could of done is release a demo – the timed demo from gamestop or the one they were using at all those events. Im glad there is a date but Im still jaded.

I’ll believe it when I get it in my hands at gamestop. Not going to raise my hopes just for it to be delayed again.

Babies. You’d think it was the release of the drug to cure a terminal illness that they had.
