The latest iteration of the Gran Turismo series won’t be hitting digital and real-world store shelves until next year, with the developers requiring more time to avoiding compromising “the experience in any way”.
Perhaps the most stark omission this morning was the fact Kazunori Yamauchi, the founder of Polyphony Digital, didn’t provide any time frame for the new release date.
“From the start this title has been one of our most ambitious undertakings by using the latest technologies, such as physics-based rendering and sound simulations, and Scapes photo mode,” the developer wrote on the US PlayStation Blog.
The delay means it will be more than three years, potentially more than four, since the PS4 launched before a new Gran Turismo. Polyphony added that they will continue to show GT Sport at various gaming conventions around the world. Another question the delay also brings up is what support GT Sport might have for PlayStation Neo and PlayStation VR, if at all.
