Here's Why GRAN TURISMO SPORT Has Been Delayed Until Next Year

There's some disappointing news for racing fans today as Polyphony Digital has confirmed that Gran Turismo Sport has been delayed until 2017! Why? Hit the jump for details directly from the developers...

Delays are often an inevitability with technically demanding games (just think back to Uncharted 4: A Thief's End), and the latest to lose its planned release date is Gran Turismo Sport. Originally set to reach stores this November, the highly anticipated game has now been slotted in for an unknown date in 2017. What's the problem? That's outlined below in a statement from Polyphony's Kazunori Yamauchi. 

Gran Turismo Sport is the first instalment to be released on the PlayStation 4, and with 137 cars, 19 tracks with 27 possible layouts, and a new photo mode called Scapes which will output at 4K resolution, it's easy to understand why the developers need a little more time. Still, this has to have come as a blow to Sony, especially as it would have no doubt sold huge numbers this holiday season. 


Hello GT Community — I am sharing some news today that we have made the difficult decision to delay the release of Gran Turismo Sport to 2017. GT Sport is Polyphony’s foremost competitive gaming title, with high expectations from both the fans and from within our team.

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. In combining these features with a new Sport mode, we are offering a competitive gaming experience to truly reinvent what it means to be a racing game. We’ve been excited and humbled by the response each time that we’ve shared new gameplay with everyone.

However, as we approach our planned release date in November, we realize we need more time to perfect GT Sport, which we’ve already dedicated so much effort towards since announcing the title. We do not want to compromise the experience in any way. While we cannot confirm a new release date at this time, we are more committed than ever to making GT Sport the best Gran Turismo game to date.

GT Sport will continue to be shown at several gaming events around the world. I hope everyone has the opportunity to experience first-hand the yet-to-be revealed cutting edge experiences that will be achieved by GT Sport.

Thank you for all your continued support.
