Gran Turismo Sport Gets Set in Stone Final Release Date, New Gameplay Trailer Released

Posted July 13, 2017 by Richard Lee Breslin in Announcements, Gaming News, PS4, Release Date

Sony Interactive Entertainment and Polyphony Digital has finally announced a set release date for Gran Turismo Sport and by the looks of things, it’s a set date that shouldn’t change from here on out.  The news was announced on the PlayStation Blog by Polyphony Digital President, Kazunori Yamauchi.

Yamauchi said:

I’m extremely excited to confirm that Gran Turismo Sport will be launching on October 18th across Europe this year. Following the successful completion of our Closed BETA phase, as announced earlier this week, we are now entering the final stages of polishing as we prepare for launch.

Between now and launch you can expect to hear a lot more from the GT team, as we unveil more information on the many features included in Gran Turismo Sport, including the campaign mode, various creative tools, as well as a full reveal on all the cars and tracks you can look forward to racing on launch day!

In the meantime though, I’d like to take this opportunity on behalf of myself and PDI, to express my gratitude for the continued support of GT fans and PlayStation supporters around the world during this BETA period. We’re as keen as all of you to get the game into player’s hands, and can’t wait to hear what everyone thinks of the game when it launches in October.

We’ve strived to create something that delivers an unprecedented experience in terms of the graphics, sound and physics simulation; an experience that can only be enjoyed on PlayStation.

To help mark the occasion, a short, but sweet release date announcement trailer was released, which you can find below.  Gran Turismo Sport will release exclusively for the PlayStation 4 on October 18th.
