It was only a few days ago that the Gran Turismo Sport beta release date was confirmed. A promise was previously made that a beta of this game will be released before it’s pushed out for everybody but it appears that the beta isn’t going to happen. Series creator Kazunori Yamauchi has confirmed that the Gran Turismo Sport beta has been cancelled.
Kazunori Yamauchi confirmed this while speaking to VideoGamer. He said that delivering the beta required as much work as putting the finishing touches on the final game itself, and that doesn’t really make a lot of sense for them to continue with the idea now.
This is why developer Polyphony Digital has come to the conclusion that it needs to shelve the beta and instead use all of its time and resources to complete the game and launch it later this year.
“In order to do a beta test we have to make a gold master of the beta test code, and for us it actually takes as much effort as to finish the real master code of the actual game,” Yamauchi said, adding that he’s very sorry about the cancellation of the beta.
Gran Turismo Sport was announced in October last year, at that time, it was said that a beta would be launched in 2016. Now we know that’s not going to happen. Fans will have to wait for the game to come out instead, the PlayStation 4-exclusive Gran Turismo Sport is going to be released on November 15th.
