Gran Turismo Sport beta cancelled

Pushing through with the beta may have delayed the game

The beta for Gran Turismo Sport has been cancelled.

The demo was announced last year, but now the game is confirmed for release in November, the beta has been cancelled in order not to delay the game.

Talking to VideoGamer, creator Kazunori Yamauchi said: “That’s something that I’m very, very sorry about. 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.”

“Just because it’s beta, we can’t just throw it out there. It’s required that in order to do an open beta we have to create a proper master for it, and considering the release timing that we announced, we decided that we just don’t have enough time to do two gold masters for the game. By omitting that it saves us about three months of time.”

Gran Turismo Sport releases on PlayStation 4 on November 15 in North America, and November 18 in the UK.
