Gran Turismo 5 Delayed Indefinitely

Could the pressure of living up to Forza 3 be getting to the Gran Turismo 5 team?

Sony Corp has this week confirmed the latest edition to the phenomenally successful race series will be delayed and miss its previously announced March release day after "production-related matters". Worryingly Sony has not set a new date for the game.

The news will come as a blow to the company since it has placed a lot of faith in the exclusive PlayStation 3 title helping to shift many more consoles during 2010. Given the success of Forza 3 - an exclusive on the Xbox 360 and one in our Top Ten Games of 2009 - the need to produce something even more breathtaking has been cranked up. But until it hits shelves month after month passes with Forza 3 helping shift Xboxes.

Then again, from what we have seen of the GT5 Academy Time Trial demo released back in December we are already looking at one heck of a polished title. Still, Forza 3 still held the edge for me then so it will be intriguing to see what Sony can come up with. That's the positive take, anyway...
