Gran Turismo 5 Release Date Now Official

Is there any game (besides Duke Nukem Forever) that has a more turbulent development path than Gran Turismo 5? First, the game was delayed, then we learned that discs were being pressed, and now we finally have a release date.

Sony has confirmed that Polyphony Digital’s long-awaited racer will hit stores November 24 in North America. In a press release, Kazunori Yamauchi, President of Polyphony Digital said,

Gran Turismo 5 is an ambitious project, with challenges and complexities which have made it our version of the Apollo Space Program! When we created the original Gran Turismo back in 1997, we wanted to set a completely new precedent for the racing genre. With the technological leap onto PlayStation 3, our objective with Gran Turismo 5 was to create another great revolution which would not only satisfy our own high expectations, but would meet or even exceed the anticipation of the fans. Satisfying the loyal Gran Turismo followers is at the heart of all of our efforts, which is why it was such a difficult decision to delay the release of the game, and one which we did not take lightly. I can only apologize to everyone for making you wait so long, and I hope that when you try out the wealth of driving experiences available in Gran Turismo 5, you will not be disappointed.

You can find plenty more info on Gran Turismo 5 on our GT5 game page. Maybe catching up on the info will tide you over until the game arrives in just under two weeks.
