Nothing in life is certain.
Except a Gran Turismo delay. You can take that to the bank whenever a new entry is announced.
Fans of the iconic racing simulator will have to wait until 2017 — some time in 2017 — to play the highly anticipated new entry in the franchise, Gran Turismo Sport.
Announced back in May and originally scheduled in for a late 2016 release, developer Polyphony Digital has been hard at work on bringing the franchise to PlayStation 4.

The newest instalment promises to feature the very latest road cars, recreated with unprecedented precision by the Polyphonic team. The cars will be a mix of real and concept vehicles, with all cars remodelled from GT6. It will also support PlayStation VR, which is an interesting addition, and it will work with all gameplay modes.
Unfortunately, it won’t be around to take advantage of PlayStation VR‘s launch hype.
Polyphonic chief Kazunori Yamauchi released a statement, saying the team doesn’t want to “compromise the experience in any way”.
It’s unsurprising: Gran Turismo games have a history of being delayed beyond their initially announced launch window. Gran Turismo PSP was touted as a PSP launch title, but didn’t arrive until five years after the handheld was release. GT4, GT6 and GT7 also went through similar delays.
