GT5 Gets Two Day European Delay

Looks like the magical release date of November 24th might only apply to the UK and the US, as the Dutch and French PlayStation sites now display a date of November 26th, and it’s the same across mainland Europe.

The UK date remains unaffected at present, displaying the original date of the 24th.


We’ve pinged Sony for an official comment, as we know lots of people had the day booked off in anticipation of the big event, if we get anything back we’ll update this post either way for confirmation.

A mid-week release date is rare, especially in the UK, so we’re half expecting our localised date to slip too, although a last minute delay of just two days is hardly going to ruin everyone’s week, right?

[Update] Is the date changing at all? According to Kotaku, Sony are claiming “We’ve announced the date as the 24th and have not changed that at all.” Let’s just say: “Gran Turismo will be out before December,” and leave it at that. [Thanks Timur]
