Polyphony’s next installment of the long-running sim racing series Gran Turismo will be out very soon. Gran Turismo Sport was last announced to have a fall release date back at E3, after having to delay he game inevitably from its original launch that supposed to be November last year.
Publishers Sony has announced the exact date of the release: October 17, 2017. That’s for US and Asia, with releases for Europe and Japan on the October 18 and 19 respectively.
After the long delay, Polyphony has rolled out a closed beta test that has been running for months now. It was updated recently and allowed players to do online races with tyre wear, fuel consumption [...]

Gran Turismo Sport is slowly, yet surely making its way out after missing its initial launch window of November last year. A closed beta session has been running for a while in the US and have since rolled out to Europe. Today, PS4 players in Asia can now sign up as well.
The closed beta will allow you to race with the AI, do time trials as well as participate in Sport mode, the online racing component of the game. You can participate in daily races and unlock random cars as you keep on playing. There’s a Sportmanship ranking that keep tracks of your behaviour on the track, so good clean racing should in theory be rewarded with more races with clean drivers while those [...]
It’s coming together soon enough. Just after a few days of some news about Gran Tursimo Sport finally revealed for the year- the inclusion of the Fittipladi EF7 Vision GT Car and a partnership with Tag Heuer- now we got a more meaty announcement: a closed beta test.
When GT Sport first announced back in 2015, it was planned to have a beta test. But as we have seen in its first big reveal at its own event in London, the beta was eventually scrapped as Polyphony was gearing towards the November 2016 release. Obviously that did not happen, and early rumours of an early 2017 release is untrue.
But the beta announcement signals that the game is coming together [...]

If the rumours of a January release for Gran Turismo Sport to be true, it needed to be announced at Playstation Experience. We did see more GT Sport, and it’s looking really, really good so far. But no release date was given, just an assurance that it will be out next year. We thought this could be the quickest Gran Turismo to be released after announcements, but for fans, such delays are the norm.
But hey, the new trailer looks fantastic like what Gran Turismo also has been: it’s visually car porn. Take a look below:
Features like 4K, HDR and VR support was mentioned in [...]
