Gran Turismo Sport Beta Canceled
Polyphony Digital & Sony unveiled Gran Turismo Sport in October 2015 & promised to launch a beta in early 2016, but now it has been canceled, according to Kazunori Yamauchi.
Yesterday, the developers revealed the latest gameplay trailer, pre-order bonus and more, but they didn’t talk about the beta, now producer of the Gran Turismo series, Kazunori Yamauchi gives us a reason behind that.
Speaking with Videogamer, 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,” he added.
When he was asked if that means there would be no beta, he replied, “Most likely I don’t think it would be possible. I’m very sorry but that’s just how it turned out.”
So there won’t be a beta for Gran Turismo Sport, it will directly hit the shelves on November 15 in North America and Japan, November 16 in Europe, and November 18, 2016 in the United Kingdom exclusively for PlayStation 4.
