Article by Christian A., on November 12, 2010

After the long delay, Gran Turismo 5 will finally be released for the North American markets on November 24, according to the head of the public relations at the U.S. Playstation blog.

This on-sale date was confirmed by Kazunori Yamauchi, President of Polyphony Digital. Yamauchi explained that there was a long wait because the creators wanted to “meet or even exceed the anticipation of the fans.”

The President said that Gran Turismo 5 is an ambitious endeavor and is filled with “challenges and complexities.” Yamauchi even went as far as to compare the Gran Turismo 5 to the Apollo Space Program.

He shared that during the development of the original Gran Turismo in 1997, the company had wanted to set a totally new precedent for the racing genre. He said that with the advancement of technology into PlayStation 3, the company had aimed to “create another great revolution.”

He also said that at the center of its efforts, there is a mission to satisfy the loyal Gran Turismo followers. He further stated that they did not take delaying the release lightly. He apologized for making the fans wait but he thinks that they will not be disappointed with the “wealth of driving experiences available in Gran Turismo 5.”
