Them earlier rumors that came out in late April are starting to come to fruition.
The good folks over at GTPlanet have learnt from one of their trusted sources that Gran Turismo 5 is almost certain to launch in 2009, Christmas to be specific, but this could still change at Sony’s discretion.
The website have also stated that the Amazon.com date of December 29th is incorrect, with the Play.com 4th December date looking the more likely now in time for the Christmas period. It is possible that Sony will announce the official date at GamesCom in Cologne during their press conference on August 18th.
At E3, Polyphony Digital’s leader, and the creator of GT, Kazunouri Yamauchi, said that they could release the game at anytime. After those remarks, the earlier rumors and this, this is now looking more likely by the day. And Yamauchi also confirmed earlier in late June that a date would be confirmed soon.
