The release of marquee PlayStation racing title Grand Turismo Sport has been delayed.
Previously scheduled to release this fall, developer Polyphony Digital announced the game would now release in 2017 in a post on the PlayStation Blog.
“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,” Grand Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi said. “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.”
“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,” Yamauchi said. “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.”
Yamauchi added that while the team was not able to provide a new release date for the title, Grand Turismo Sport will continue to be shown off at future gaming events.
