Shocking a considerably small amount of the gaming population, SCEA producer Taku Imasaki updated the PlayStation Blog with a post revealing Gran Turismo 5 will be delayed once again. Many a previous release dates for GT5 have come and gone so when the game was said to be confirmed for early November this year, I must say I was a little sceptical.
But according to Imasaki, there’s a good reason for the set back: “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.”
By constantly delaying a game and saying it’s to make it better can only burden it with unobtainable expectations from gamers. Imasaki does insist that GT5 will be out before Christmas but not whether that’ll be worldwide or only for Japan – and whatever date (regardless of how vague) is given right now will be hard to believe.
