SCEE has told CVG that talk of a Christmas release for Gran Turismo 5 is just that: "rumour and speculation".
It comes as GT Planet tagged the game would for a release in time for the holidays, although the site claimed a date from Amazon US, December 29, is wrong.
"We haven't announced a release date for GT5 yet," said a rep from Sony, adding that it "can't comment on the US."
Keep an eye on Cologne in two weeks. It's more then likely the date will be announced there.
