Kazunori Yamauchi, president of Polyphony Digital and creator of Gran Turismo, has announced that GT Sport will be launching on October 17 in North America.
The developers promise more information about the game through the next few months as it approaches release. To pull the plug this soon after the update wouldn't leave much time for the development team to see how much the mechanical damage impacts gameplay, never mind give them enough time to make adjustments.
In addition to revealing the release dates (the release window before this was simply fall 2017) for the game, Sony and Polyphony Digital have also revealed and detailed the game's Limited and Deluxe Editions. As time goes by, Sony intends to reveal numerous new cars and tracks. PlayStation VR support will be provided as part of the base game.
There is the Gran Turismo Sport Collector's Edition, GT Sport Steel Book Edition and GT Sport Day 1 Edition.
Actually, Sports Mode was originally going to dominate the game's content offerings.
Gran Turismo Sport was a hot spectacle at this year's E3, earning attention for its graphics and improved physics engine. In the USA, it's coming one day earlier on October 17.
