PlayStation VR Title Gran Turismo Sport Delayed Until Next Year

Developers have put the brakes on as we drift towards its release now put off.

It was announced late last year that Gran Turismo Sport was going to receive PlayStation VR support, but there was no doubting that this latest instalment of the popular driving series was going to take a fair bit of time to materialise just like most greatly anticipated titles. Now, it has come that we will be waiting just a little bit longer to see the final finish to this title than its original date of November 2016.

It was shared across all of the PlayStation Blogs where Kazunori Yamauchi, Creator of Gran Turismo, announced that Gran Turismo Sport won’t be released until next year. He explains that the title has been an ambitious project, “using latest technologies, such as physics-based rendering and sound simulations, and Scapes photo mode.”


“However, as we approach our planned release date in November, we realize we need more time to perfect GT Sport, which we’ve already dedicated so much effort towards since announcing the title. We do not want to compromise the experience in any way. While we cannot confirm a new release date at this time, we are more committed than ever to making GT Sport the best Gran Turismo game to date.”

Racing titles for the PlayStation VR have been some of the more anticipated, including Driveclub VR, a PlayStation VR exclusive that will be a launch title for the head-mounted display (HMD) in October.

But don’t worry about whether or not you will be able to try out the demos as it will continue to be shown at some of the biggest gaming events around the world.
