Sony’s confirmed what appears to be a substantial delay for GT5 in Japan.

This is machine translated text from a Japanese press release:

Sony Computer Entertainment (SCEJ) (※ 1), the “PlayStation 3″ (PS3 ®) Onrainkaraifushimyureta only Version 5 Gran Turismo (GT5) on the production schedule due to the release date, announces our first Orimashi About Ta 2010 We’ve decided to postpone it for month.

本作の新しい発売時期につきましては決定次第、改めてご案内いたします。 For his new release date as soon as this decision, we will guide again.

本作の発売をお待ちいただいておりますユーザーの皆様には大変ご迷惑をおかけいたしますこと深くお詫び申し上げます。 Everyone of our users to wait for their release of this film that we apologize apologize for any inconvenience.

Several reports are claiming the release initially said the game would be delayed by three months, but has now been changed.

This Game Watch piece says only that the racer’s been postponed, and a new date is to be announced.

The game was scheduled to hit Japan in March.

“Whoops”. No date had been given for the hugely anticipated title in the US or Europe.

    Well lol me a lol burger with extra lol. This really is becoming a DNF forever type affair, as soon as a release date gets closer, it’s put back.

    As people have said, the only piece of good news that can come from this, is that it’s been put back for a worldwide release, other than that, what on Earth are they doing???

    Although that said, the response to the free time trial download was less than warm in many key areas, so they’re likely using any extra time to re-tune the physics etc.

    Alan Wake is a game being put together by a tiny team… though admittedly we haven’t had Alan Wake Prologue, so PD do have them beaten there.

    That said, “no one complains”? Are you fucking insane? It’s all you ever see when Alan Wake is mentioned.

    lol @ 9
    drop the fanboy act
    this is the best game in racing world including PC period
    did you play the time Trial BETA? guess not
    it is a good thing they delayed it because March is already backed up, it sucks for gamers but it is a good decision in the end

    Not everything single thing in Alan Wake needs the team to visit, test then ask people what they can and cant do with the content though.

    Yep another thing people complain when a game is a rushed buggy mess yet when developers are taking thier time to make a game thats as good as it can be they still complain. You just cant win with some gamers.

    It comes down to this. would you rather have GT 5 come out a buggy mess with glitches all over the place or a perfect racing game.

    Alan Wake is a game out of this world so it is OK for a delay
    and the same goes for GT
    PD always take a lot of time in making main games
    and yet both will be aces i bet my account

    “Not everything single thing in Alan Wake needs the team to visit, test then ask people what they can and cant do with the content though.”

    It’s a fair point, but then when there’s another team that has put out three similar games in the time it’s taken PD to do one I’m not sure how appropriate it is.
