Sony is cancelling and refunding digital pre-orders of Gran Turismo Sport.

Grand Turismo Sport was set to release in November, before Sony announced a sudden delay a couple of weeks ago.

There’s currently no release date for GT Sport, and Sony is apparently cancelling pre-orders for customers who per-purchased the title through the PlayStation Store. TeamVVV reports that many users have had their pre-orders cancelled, and received this message from Sony.

“On 30th August 2016 we regrettably announced that the release of Gran Turismo Sport has been delayed until 2017. We do not have a new release date at this time. We have, therefore, decided to cancel your pre-order and refund your pre-order payment,” it reads.

“Once we have a new release date for Gran Turismo Sport we will offer a revised pre-order for it on the PlayStation Store at the earliest opportunity. Thank you for your custom and please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.”

As the site notes, this does not bode well for those who expected this delay to be relatively short. This could indicate we’re looking at a much larger waiting period than these last minute delays usually tend to be.
