Writing on the PlayStation Blog, series creator Kazunori Yamauchi confirmed that the long awaited racing-sim Grand Turismo Sport will release October 17 for PlayStation 4 in North America.
Yamauchi wrote; “Hello GT Fans! I’m extremely excited to confirm that Gran Turismo Sport will be launching on October 17 in North America. 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.”
The release date announcement comes alongside a brand new trailer showing off more of the exceedingly gorgeous gameplay. Fans should look out for new info on the game from now until launch such as details on the Career Mode, various creative tools, and a full roster of cars and tracks.
The end of the year looks set to be a busy period for racing games in particular with Project Cars 2 releasing September 22 and Forza Motorsport launching on October 3. We’ll have to wait and see which one takes first place.
