No GravatarLast week, we reported that Kazunori Yamauchi had delayed GT Sport which was originally scheduled to be released during this holiday season to now sometime in 2017.

Fans of the game that have pre-ordered the game through the Playstation Store have been receiving messages through their PSN account that the pre-orders have been cancelled. We have included the whole letter below:

“Thank you for pre-ordering Gran Turismo Sport from PlayStation®Store. 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. This refund may take up to 7-10 days to be processed. Please keep a record of this message for future reference.

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.”

Delays are not exactly uncommon, but to delay pre-orders is rare unless the game itself is being cancelled. Other games that have been delayed for the Playstation 4 such as Uncharted 4 and even more recently, Final Fantasy XV, none of the pre-orders of the for-mentioned titles were cancelled.

We do not know for sure whether the game will be cancelled, as of press time, pre-orders are still being taken by most other retailers including Amazon, Best Buy and others.  They are either showing the end of year holding date or not available. We will keep you up to date on  the latest new of Grand Turismo Sport.

No GravatarKazunori Yamauchi, President of Polyphony Digital Inc, the developer behind Gran Turismo Sport announced recently in a post on the official website, that the Playstation 4 exclusive title will be delayed until sometime in 2017.

Gran Turismo Sport was first announced during the Paris Game Week in October 2015, being touted as the most realistic racing game to date. Starting with vehicles such as the 2015 Mazda Roadster S (ND) and Ford Mustang GT Premium Fastback that have been meticulously recreated to match their real world counterpart an nineteen race tracks with twenty-seven layouts. Players will also be able to acquire a FIA Gran Turismo Digital License once  completing  lessons in racing etiquette in the Campaign mode and reaching a certain levels of achievement in the Sport Mode, which the developer states will equal to the real license.

There was no explanation as to why the delay, but we can assume that there must have been some big factors, considering the game was suppose to be released this November. We had written to the publisher and developer to get more details, but we had not received a response as of press time.
