While fans have been patiently waiting three years for Gran Turismo Sport, the delay shouldn’t really come as a shock. Speaking with a Chinese outlet, Sina, in early August, Kazunori had revealed that only around 70 percent of the game was completed. This information caused quite a stir amongst fans, with many doubting whether the game will actually meet it’s November deadline.

While no specific reason was given for the delay, Kazunori explains that the decision to delay the game just months out from it’s initial November 15 launch date was very difficult. Gran Turismo Sport has been Polyphony Digital’s most ambitious undertakings yet with Kazunori stating:

“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.”

Although the game may be delayed, don’t expect it to just disappear as it will continue to be shown at several gaming events around the world.
