Official: Gran Turismo 5 release date

Can it be? GT5 gets an Officially Official definitely-going-to-happen release date. Probably

Gran Turismo 5

Gran Turismo 5 will hit UK stores on Wednesday 24 November, in the year 2010.

No, wait! Come back! A very official-sounding press release from the makers of GT5 has confirmed the highly anticipated racing sim will finally come amongst us at the end of November.

Gaming god and Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi quipped: "Gran Turismo 5 is an ambitious project, with challenges and complexities which have made it our version of the Apollo Space Programme!

"Satisfying the loyal Gran Turismo followers is at the heart of all of our efforts, which is why it was such a difficult decision to delay the release of the game, and one which we did not take lightly.

"I can only apologise to everyone for making you wait so long, and I hope that when you try out the wealth of driving experiences available in Gran Turismo 5, you will not be disappointed."

Oh, alright then Kaza, all is forgiven. Don't forget, GT5 packs over 1,000 cars and a 'Top Gear'. We have screenshots. You should look at them.

Squirming uncontrollably in anticipation, or a bit, 'meh'?

Now share it...
