Polyphony’s Gran Turismo Sport for the Playstation 4 has been delayed to 2017 to further perfect the racer.

Kazunori Yamauchi, founder of Polyphony Digital and Creator of Gran Turismo series, announced the news today on the official Playstation blog.

The racer was initially slated for a release this November, but more time is needed to “perfect” the game.

“From the start this title has been one of our most ambitious undertakings by using the latest technologies, such as physics-based rendering and sound simulations, and Scapes photo mode. In combining these features with a new Sport mode, we are offering a competitive gaming experience to truly reinvent what it means to be a racing game. We’ve been excited and humbled by the response each time that we’ve shared new gameplay with everyone”, writes Yamauchi

“However, as we approach our planned release date in November, we realize we need more time to perfect GT Sport, which we’ve already dedicated so much effort towards since announcing the title. We do not want to compromise the experience in any way. While we cannot confirm a new release date at this time, we are more committed than ever to making GT Sport the best Gran Turismo game to date.”

GT Sport was unveiled during Sony’s Paris Games Week press conference last year, and back in May of this year, Sony announced that the game would be launching this November.

We’ll update when we learn more about GT Sport’s new release date in 2017.
