The launch date saga continues and this time, we might actually have some semi-official information.

According to an Indian source , Sony has confirmed to Indian retailers that GT5 will launch on November 24. Now, if you didn't know, India is part of the SCEE territory so maybe it's safe to assume that such a date goes for most of Europe and the Middle East. It seems GameZen, a Bangalore-based store, received confirmation from Sony's Indian distributor, Milestone Interactive, although the latter has asked that GameZen not take orders just yet. Furthermore, this jives with what we've been hearing throughout the past day or so; members on the NeoGAF message boards and GTPlanet have hinted at a November 24 release date as well. For the record, the 24th is a Wednesday, which is a day later than most new game releases in the US (most new titles hit on Tuesdays). With all the information we currently have, perhaps it's time to expect GT5 within the next couple of weeks…

And if it does arrive this month, racing fanatics everywhere are going to be quite happy. It will also only be three weeks past the originally anticipated November 2 launch date.

I'm sorry, but this no clue GT5 release date nonsense is getting annoying. These guys need to give consumers a release date already because I am tired of this crap with Sony. Seriously, not sure if I'm even interested in this game anymore. I know I'm still going to get it, but when gamestop tells me the game is suppose to release on Jan. 1, but other sources say something else, that is pitiful. PD needs to get their ish together and release this game already. Already paid for AC Brotherhood because I know for sure it will arrive November 16. I haven't even pre-ordered GT5 yet because I don't know if I can get my money back if it doesn't get released…lol…just kidding, but you know the business.

I'm in the same boat as you, but GT5 is still a D1P for me.
Sick and tired of all the clues and hints, we want a date from Sony.

Yes, me too. This will be amazing. I really hope the game comes out in two weeks. I'm going to a cousin's house for thanksgiving. He want's a 360, I'll so him some epic perfection id so. Plus the game is finished way shouldn't come out sooner rather then later.
The game is finished, Copy's are being shipped off to retailer and there are people who have it. Nov 23/24 is very likely. For us in the USA black Friday is on the 26, So this will be great for them.

Nicely done, Highlander. I even remember your reasoning. If I remember correctly, did you not even give the play by play on how Sony has contracts to fill and could logistically start after a couple weeks?

Nice call, man.

I've been sticking with Black Friday week since the Nov. 2 delay. It only makes sense to have the game out there for the biggest shopping day of the year in the U.S.

Just waiting for the official word. they could still surprise us again and push it to the 30th or even December. But, it sure seems like the stars are aligning for the 23rd.

This may be the only game I get for the rest of the year. Christmas always has a way at draining the wallet reservoir.

I'm not too worried about the release date just as long as it makes it before Christmas =)

Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is the day before Black Friday. This date is perfect. I just wonder why Sony hasn't announced the date yet.
GT5 is being released on November 25!!!
It's just two weeks away, Sony announce it already.

It would make sense except that it's not a tuesday. But who cares?! I think GT5 is special enough to come out on any day.

You know, the indecision about all this has sent games journalists into a tizzy and gotten more coverage than any other method. This is great news, and until Sony or Kaz says otherwise, correct. GT5 will release in all regions between the 23rd and 26th of November, and I absolutely can not wait.
Peace.

So when stores receive their shipments of this game, are they going to sit there and wait until Sony announces a date before they begin selling it? Because Sony seems to have no interest in communicating with them. Or anyone.

Does anyone remember when this game was originally supposed to release? I think it was a while ago.

The only official release date it ever had was November 2.

TheHighlander

The thing that confuses people is the vague commitment made last year to a release in Japan. the game was always slated for a global release strategy, so when we heard news that Sony/PD had said the game would release that holiday season in Japan, everyone made the assumption that it would release everywhere. But no date was given. Time came and went, and still no release date, and then we got word that the game needed more time in the oven for additional features like damage and weather, and 3D.

So as Ben says, the only official date ever given was Nov 2nd, but there were a whole lot of strong hints of a Oct 2009 release during the late summer of 2009, just no specific dates.

I'll believe it when I'm standing in line with said game in hand. While I'm still interested in GT5, I lost all enthusiasm for this game a year ago. Just release it already and enough with the delays! It'll never be "perfect" enough for Mr. Yakamodo or whatever his name is.

I still hate Sony and Polyphony Digital right now for excluding everyone but Japan for the GT5 PS3 Racing Bundle, and for excluding only the U.S. for the Signature Edition.
