Gran Turismo Sport is going to be the thirteenth installment in the Gran Turismo series. Polyphony Digital is making Gran Turismo games for about 18 years now. According to Kazunori Yamauchi, the CEO of Polyphony Digital, Gran Turismo Sport is going to be the “new era” of the Gran Turismo franchise.
Gran Turismo Sport Delayed, No New Release Date Mentioned
But well, Gran Turismo Sport was supposed to release on November 13, 2016, but the developers have delayed it. In a recent PlayStation Blog post, CEO of Polyphony & Producer of Gran Turismo series, Kazunori Yamauchi said:
“I am sharing some news today that we have made the difficult decision to delay the release of Gran Turismo Sport to 2017.”
The reason why they’re delaying the game is because they “need more time to perfect GT Sport”. Gran Turismo Sport is going to feature physics-based rendering technique, sound simulations, and full PS VR support. And for the first time ever, Gran Turismo Sport will have a “Sports Mode”. Gran Turismo Sport is going to be different from the previous parts. It is going to have more content. GT Sport is not going to have dynamic weather system and day-night cycle, unlike its previous parts. But, the game will give you the option to change the timing before entering a race.
Polyphony didn’t give any specific new release date either. But the game is delayed to 2017. So yeah, GT Sport will arrive somewhere in 2017 now. It seems like Polyphony Digital is determined to make GT sport a masterpiece of the series.
“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.”
Yamauchi further stated that the game will be shown at gaming events around the world in future. GT Sport will arrive in 2017 as a PlayStation exclusive.
