Below is a message from Gran Turismo Series Producer Kazunori Yamauchi

Hello GT Fans!

I’m extremely excited to confirm that Gran Turismo Sport will be launching on October 17th in Asia this year. Following the successful completion of our Closed BETA phase, as announced earlier this week, we are now entering the final stages of polishing as we prepare for launch.

Between now and launch you can expect to hear a lot more from the GT team, as we unveil more information on the many features included in Gran Turismo Sport, including the campaign mode, various creative tools, as well as a full reveal on all the cars and tracks you can look forward to racing on launch day!

In the meantime though, I’d like to take this opportunity on behalf of myself and Polyphony Digital Inc., to express my gratitude for the continued support of GT fans and PlayStation supporters around the world during this BETA period. We’re as keen as all of you to get the game in to player’s hands, and can’t wait to hear what everyone thinks of the game when it launches in October.

We’ve strived to create something that delivers an unprecedented experience in terms of the graphics, sound and physics simulation; an experience that can only be enjoyed on PlayStation.

The series has sold over 76.9 million copies to date. Gran Turismo Sport will be released on PlayStation 4 across the Asia region simultaneously on Tuesday, 17th October 2017.

 

Pokdepinion: Well, maybe there’s a good reason to get a steering wheel for my PS4 now. Not sure about you but these games are usually a lot more fun with ’em.
