Polyphony Digital don’t like rushing. It also appears, going off further delays reported overnight that they don’t really like releasing games at all, never mind rushing them.
“We think that we’ll release this game in Autumn, before Christmas, but it is not decided yet,” said SCEE’s James Armstrong in an interview with Canarias Al Dia. “GT5 is a great hope for Sony,” he continued, “a very important game for the company, which generates much income.”
Well, it might, if you ever get it out. We should clarify that the above is a translation, but it does show that the release of the game, which was originally pitched at 2009, then moved to March 2010, then delayed again, is starting to drag for Sony.
“We would like to release GT5 before Autumn,” said Armstrong, “but we think that the priority is to make this game with the best quality as possible.”
