October 14, 2010Written by Zak Islam

When Gran Turismo 5 was delayed yesterday, gamers were clearly furious with the decision. Apparently, the decision to delay the racer was made just one day before the announcement.

Sony Computer Entertainment of America’s Taku Imasaki, the producer on the PlayStation 3 exclusive, told New York Times:

“We’re really close, but this was an executive decision that was made yesterday [Oct. 12]. Realistically, we thought we had a good date.”

Imasaki continued:

“We’re not happy over here.”

We’re not happy too.

Imasaki also stated that Sony “is shooting for it to be out by the holidays and “you won’t see too much more delay.” The exact, final release date for Gran Turismo 5 will be announced at the end of the month.
