Gran Turismo 5 in 2009 Unlikely

2 min read

The idea of playing Gran Turismo 5 before the end of this year is getting slimmer and slimmer as more news is doing the rounds that we won’t be seeing the game this year.

A couple of different sources on the internet are reporting that Sony have said that Gran Turismo 5 will be available before the end of the current fiscal year. Now we all know that when it comes to marketing and hype, a company is always happy to boast some amazing release date that will make everyone happy.

It’s not surprise though, as Gran Turismo fans have become quite used to the idea of waiting forever for GT games.

More details after the jump.

When companies know that they aren’t going to make the ultra-popular December holidays release date that everyone wants, they always fall back onto the “before end of the fiscal… blah blah”, we know the story.

The fiscal year ends on the 31st of March 2010. Which means that unless something changes and the game becomes ready earlier than they expected, be ready to only play GT5 somewhere between January and March next year.

    Well this is starting to sound like Duke Nukem

  • Lmao NO. and heres why.its a slow time in the year jan,feb,march. And GOW 3 hits about the same time.if you recall,Resistance 2 and KZ3 were to launch close to each other,so they delayed it to this year.Sony never release AAA titles close to each other.That plus impending announcement of the PS3 slim at TGS,GT5 will launch alongside a price cut,but I expect 2 price cuts this year.main one being when the slim hits.expect a TGS GT5 release date. Trust me,it WILL be December 3-5 . When holiday shopping hits overdrive.Sony is just too predictable.

  • easy

    2 price cuts!! lol 😆
    most people are skeptical that even one will happen, but as long as you’re confident 😉

    i don’t particularly care when gt5 gets released, i just want them to get it perfect. there’s no point rushing a game… and no one can claim pd to be rushing anything 😆

  • Yip.i have a feeling. . .2 cuts.after TGS and mid me. . . .

    Wasnt GT supposed to be out 2 years ago? With Forza 3 moving in closer it seems Sony will try to improve GT to delay it even further. Silly if you ask me.

  • Fudzy

    Anybody remember how long GT4 took to come out? Delay after delay, some things are worth the wait. Especially if it’s got the Top Gear test track 😀

  • AFAIK local distrubutors have its listed for Dec this year.

    Even if GT5 did release i wouldnt buy it… I already have so many racing games as it is. One thing im loving about this generation is that, we are getting slaughtered with games.
