Gran Turismo 5 – Christmas 2009!

Gran Turismo 5 27 November 30, 2008 by

From a very surprising yet highly reliable source, we’ve got the most likely and realistic Gran Turismo 5 release date!  Sony’s chief executive in southern Europe, James Armstrong, revealed in a statement to Spanish newspaper El Financiero that we can expect the game to arrive (in Europe, at least) Christmas 2009.  Here’s the full translated quote:

For next year, the chief executive of Sony Computer Entertainment for southern Europe said that they are developing a new game thriller, in which the player may be designing their own history, and the new version of Gran Turismo, which will arrive at Christmas.

This would provide for a late summer release in Japan, and late fall/early winter releases in the United States and Europe.  From a sales perspective, it would also provide the PlayStation franchise with a major blockbuster release heading into next year’s Christmas season.  What do you think?  Join the discussion in our Gran Turismo 5 forum!
