Sony Computer Entertainment and Polyphony Digital have announced that Gran Turismo Sport has been pushed back into 2017. The title was originally planned for a release on PlayStation 4 on November 15, 2016, but the developer has decided that they need more time with the game.
"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," wrote Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi in the annoucement on the official PlayStation blog. "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."
Sony and Polyphony will continue to demo Gran Turismo Sport at events worldwide. There's been no specific release date given outside of the generic 2017 window.
