Gran Turismo 5 delayed (yet again)
If there was one game I was looking forward to in the next few weeks, Gran Turismo 5 was it. It’s been delayed for long enough, but we got a peek at E3 this year, and you could see why. The designers have put a massive amount of work into making the game look as realistic as possible, so much so that when you were looking at a shot of the car from game and the real-life vehicle, it was hard to tell the difference.
The release date had been set, a launch event planned, and we were almost there. Almost.
But this morning, Sony announced it would be delayed yet again. This time, “production difficulties” are to blame.
Have a look at Twitter, and you’ll see GT fans are not happy. And creator Kazunori Yamauchi is coming in for some serious criticism for the delay.
You can’t blame them really. GT5 was first revealed at E3 back in 2006. And it had already been in development for a couple of years at that stage. We were given a March 2010 release date, which also passed without any hope of the game being released. Then November 2nd, a deadline which the game is clearly now not going to meet.
“Holiday 2010″ is the best we’ve got so far.
This game better live up to the promises…
