Sony may not be planning to release Gran Turismo 5 here until summer 2010, if a recent comment by an SCEA rep is anything to go by.

Chris Hinojosa-Miranda revealed the date to Destructoid, which has since vanished, but was eye-witnessed by Kotaku before doing so.

With Gran Turismo 5 not due out in Japan until March 2010, a Western launch a few months later is feasible - although we're double-checking with Sony. The multi-million dollar racing game had once been in touching distance and pegged for Q4 2009.

Gran Turismo 5 will be Polyphony Digital's first proper series instalment on PlayStation 3, a machine that's been tested through Gran Turismo HD and Gran Turismo 5 Prologue releases.

The result is that Gran Turismo 5 looks astonishing. Head to our gamepage below to find out more.
