Indy Racing a No-Go for Gran Turismo 5

February 7, 2010 Written by Thomas Williams

News broke last month when PlayStation: The Official Magazine reported that IRL would be finding its way into Gran Turismo 5. A month later and P:TOM has revealed that it’s more like ‘IR-OOPS!’ as they have some bad news for fans of the Indy Racing League.

With the March 2010 issue hitting readers hands starting this week, P:TOM apologized for their error of announcing that GT5 would feature the IRL, joking that ‘we can always hope for DLC’ when it comes to the matter.

Considering the fact that the game features over 1,000 cars including the NASCAR and WRC licenses, does it bother you that it IRL won’t be a part of the package when the GT5 hits?

Gran Turismo 5 is scheduled to hit  in 2010 and as I mentioned, it will include over 1,000 cars, 80 tracks, head-tracking via the PlayStation Eye, a totally revamped online mode, and tons more. Gran Turismo 5 will easily be the largest GT to date and one of the biggest games to hit this year across any platform. Make sure you don’t miss it.
