GT5 date announcement imminent

Let's go round again.

Polyphony Digital boss Kazunori Yamauchi has tweeted that a Gran Turismo 5 date announcement is imminent.

"It looks like the release date is about to be announced," he wrote on Twitter according to Andriasang's translation.

Gran Turismo 5 has been firmly dated only once before, at E3 this year, when PlayStation 3 platform holder Sony said to expect it on 3rd November, but the release was delayed last month.

It's hardly the first time the game has been set back - at the Tokyo Game Show in 2009 Sony said it would be released in Japan this March, only to walk back that claim at the start of this year.

The big question is whether the game will be released this month, this year, or whether Sony will bump it into 2011. Yamauchi has previously said that the discs were "being stamped as we speak" on 3rd November, so it's a tough one to call.

Sounds like we'll know soon though. Sony told Eurogamer yesterday that it had no new information on the release date.

Meanwhile, Yamauchi has said the studio is already at work on Gran Turismo 6.
