Gran Turismo 5 Delayed Again but Still Promised for "This Holiday Season"

Stop me if you've heard this before; Gran Tursimo 5, Sony's flagship racing simulation and car culture cornucopia has been delayed, again. The news is not as bad as prior delays, though. Gran Turismo 5 will miss its planned November 2 release, but according to an official statement will still be out this holiday season.

In a post on Sony's PlayStation Blog, the game's producer, Taku Imasaki writes:

We can confirm that Gran Turismo 5 will not be available this November 2nd, but the game's release will be coming this holiday season.

We sincerely apologize to GT fans for the delay, however, creator Kazunori Yamauchi and the team at Polyphony Digital want to make certain they are creating the perfect racing experience, and we are confident that this ambitious game will exceed expectations when it launches.

Polyphony Digital promises more information will be released in the near future.
