When news broke yesterday that GT5 would be delayed yet again, fans across gaming’s web went mental, literally. And with good reason, save Duke Nukem, Polyphony Digital’s fifth major installment in the longer running franchise must be the most delayed game ever.
It’s been six years in the making, and after promising to release the game on November 2nd at this past E3, fans were left disappointed, again.
Polyphony Digital boss, Kazunori Yamauchi is extremely saddened by the situation, and he went on twitter to plead with fans, asking them to “wait a bit more”.
UPDATE 2: The game’s delayed in all of Europe too, with the statement from SCEE reading as follows:
“We are sorry to say that Gran Turismo 5 will not be available on the previously announced release date of November 3rd, but the game will be released before Christmas.
We sincerely apologise to GT fans for the delay, however creator Kazunori Yamauchi and the team at Polyphony Digital want to make certain they are creating a racing experience of the highest quality. We are confident that this ambitious game will exceed expectations when it launches later this year. We’ll have more information for you in the near future.”
UPDATE 1: Japan’s delayed also.
Original Story: It’s time we form a gang, buy some expensive Japanese plane tickets, find Polyphony Digital’s studios, and reprimand everybody who works there.
Gran Turismo 5 has been delayed yet again.
PS3 and PC Gamers whose intentions were to do some havoc in tombs all across the world, with best buddies joining in on the fun while playing Crystal Dynamics’ Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, will have to wait a while longer before this happens.
That’s according to a press release from the developer.
Talk about L.A. Noire being delayed into 2011 has been around for a little bit, and now it’s back again. This time, from Pacific Crest Securities analyst Evan Wilson.
You’ll have to wait until next year to get your F.E.A.R fix, apparently.
Some folks won’t like this.
Yep, that’s right, 2011. Apparently, the director was telling no lie when he uttered that doing an Uncharted movie, after Uncharted 2, really frightened him.
To all the Crysis fans who’ve been eagerly awaiting Crysis 2′s arrival this year, ask the Lord for some more patience.
Next year is better, according to EA.
SOCOM used to be an extremely popular and profitable franchise for Sony, it still is in every sense of the word. But in recent times we’ve seen the title take a back sit and shooters like Resistance and Killzone jump to the forefront. Now Sony’s decided to push the game back to deliver the best immersive SOCOM title they possibly can.
No SOCOM 4 for you this year.
It’s a crowded FPS year, then again every year is a crowded FPS year. But this year in particular will see a plethora of FPS titles released and some of them are big names. They include Crytek’s entry into the console market with Crysis 2, Bungie’s swang song Halo: Reach, Sony’s Resistance 3, EA’s Medal of Honor, and Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops just to name a few.
