It's finally been given a window for release and that's in winter 2009, just in time for Santa to get off his rear and stuff copies into people's homes.
During an interview with a Spanish newspaper of all places, Sony's James Armstrong spilled that the racing simulator will be for next year and "arrive at Christmas."
"For next year, the chief executive of Sony Computer Entertainment for southern Europe said that they are developing a new game thriller, in which the player may be designing their own history, and the new version of Gran Turismo, which will arrive at Christmas," reads the translation from the Spanish newspaper.
Looks like Sony has 2009 almost wrapped up already for big hitters with Killzone 2, Heavy Rain and now Gran Turismo 5 all coming next year.
