Remember Gran Turismo 5 release drama with fans asking for a release date and what not? Well, that actually seems to have impacted the way Polyphony Digital boss Kazonuri Yamuchi thinks. He has revealed that he doesn’t want to announce anything earlier to stop people from unnecessary speculating and mocking them of delays.
The game is in development, however, as Yamuchi confirmed this during the Gran Turismo 5 Asia Championship 2012 event which was held last week.
When asked about the game’s official announcement, he said, “If I carelessly say when it will be released, you’ll end up with people saying things like ‘it’s been delayed again!?’ so I will no longer say at this type of event.”
So it doesn’t look like the game will be announced any time soon, but the Tokyo Game Show will be held later this year, so maybe we could have something there at the Sony press conference.
