    So american gamers finally get some love. Hope we get the beta sooner here in U.K. rather than later.

    I don't understand their logic. First the beta was cancelled because it would cause too much delay for GT Sport's development and now a year later they launch a beta ? I am lost.

    GT Sport seems very far from finished.

    Early 2016 public beta arrives in early 2017.

    So from Beta to going gold and releasing the game how long does it usually take? Three to five months?

    I'm the opposite, if the beta goes well then a 2017 release is all but certain, fully expecting a fall release now.

    Looks like the second beta will be for EU later:confused:
    "Während sich der Umfang der BETA vergrößert, werden diejenigen, die sich angemeldet oder direkt eine E-Mail erhalten haben, dafür ausgewählt, an der zweiten Phase der geschlossenen BETA teilzunehmen. Es wird nur eine begrenzte Anzahl an Plätzen geben – solltet ihr es also nicht in Phase 2 schaffen, dann bleibt dran, um im Vorfeld der Veröffentlichung mehr über weitere künftige BETA-Aktivitäten zu erfahren!"

    Is it for everyone or is it a selection of people.

    And yeah, I hope its not only for the US because that is...

    As far as I know being a beta tester means that you can give some feedback to developer. Is it true? If can then you guys here who selected as beta testers should give PD some advice :lol: Make sure they not making us worried again in the future :D

    Despite the delays, I am really looking forward to this. For some, the Tag Heuer announcement may be small, but in reality, it shows how serious Kaz and PD are taking this game. And with Tag Heuer timing, I'm guessing the frame rate must be silky smooth.

    I think this has the potential to rival iRacing, given the anount of support the franchise has. And I think Assetto Corsa and Project CARS have really pushed this game to improve significantly.

    A very good time to be a motorsport fan

    Come on, guys. It's not US only, it's US first.
    Just wait a bit more and you'll get your beta.

    On offical Polish PlayStation's FB page they shared the info, and told people that they can sign up. So are they wrong or what?

    The title literally says for *US Players* and it's a "closed" beta.

    So only a few people in the US will be able to play this.

    Cool story Kaz.

    Why is it limited spaces; I don't care about playing online with anyone but just test the damn game already!!

    1 car/ 1 track = :)

    Should have been an open beta. They should also have at least added another new track or 2 rather than give Brands Hatch, Big Willow and Tokyo Expressway again.

    By the way, this "Daily Workout" thing is pretty cool. I hope there will be more daily challenges.

    That's how betas work, you start with a closed one and re-adjust your servers accordingly.
