Gran Turismo 5 North American Release Date Set for November 24

Here we go again: a new release date for Gran Turismo 5 has been released. The head of the public relations at the U.S. Playstation blog has offered us a new North American release date for the game. Are you ready? It seems like the waaaaait will be over on November 24. Let’s just hope that this is not going to be a new disappointment.

Kazunori Yamauchi, President of Polyphony Digital, confirmed the on-sale date. The executive also came to explain why the long delay happened, offering us a little story.

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,” the President explained.

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,” he added.

The whole Gran Turismo 5 story is simple: Polyphony keeps saying that the dog ate its homework. It’s just that we are not talking about telling this to a teacher but to the whole world.
