What’s Up PlayStation Nation,
With another year comes another major PlayStation game being delayed. Yesterday morning, Kazunori Yamauchi went to the PlayStation Blog to announce, that Gran Turismo Sport has been officially delayed until 2017. Upon announcing this delay there was no release window given for the 2017 push.
“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.”
“GT Sport will continue to be shown at several gaming events around the world. I hope everyone has the opportunity to experience first-hand the yet-to-be revealed cutting edge experiences that will be achieved by GT Sport.”

In my opinion: Though I understand the reason’s for a game being delayed. I feel this delay will end up as a huge opportunity missed for PlayStation. GT Sport was by far PlayStation’s biggest game releasing this holiday season, with a lot of racing fans looking forward to it. With the Xbox One having Forza Horizon 3 releasing in September, they now will have no direct competition for the racing genre. Hopefully GT Sport wouldn’t lose it’s enthusiasm from fans looking for a new racing game from PlayStation.
