Gran Turismo 5 officially delayed in Japan

Gran Turismo 5 has for the first time been officially delayed. Yes, I did say for the first time. Although it seems otherwise, this is actually the game’s first official delay, owing to the fact that a release date was not announced until the Tokyo Games Show last year when Sony pinned GT5 to March 2010 in Japan.

Today Sony Japan posted a press release stating that the game would be delayed for one month in the country. A new official release date will be announced soon.

Although a date has yet to be revealed for either the US or Europe, SCEE has come out to state that today’s press release was only in reference to Japan. A SCEE representative told Eurogamer:

This information on the GT release is only applicable for the Japanese market. SCEE will announce the launch date for this game in the PAL territories in due course.

Nevertheless, it’s likely that Sony will hold the game back from Western markets until Holiday 2010. While you wait, enjoy gawking over our Gran Turismo 5 screenshot gallery.
