GT Mobile pushed aside for GT5?

Jan 15, 2008

Suspicions of Sony having canned GT Mobile for PSP have arisen once again after months of silence on the title, and its recent removal from certain retailers' online pre-order lists.

When speaking to a Sony UK correspondent today, we were told: "Polyphony is currently focusing all its resources on developing GT5 for PS3."

While this does not confirm that GT Mobile has been scrapped, it certainly insinuates that GT Mobile has been put on the backburner while the obviously crucial PS3 game takes the lead.

This was, after all, exactly what series creator Kazunori Yamauchi, said just last month - that while he's very much working on Gran Turismo Mobile, it won't be out ‘til after Gran Turismo 5 releases.

GT Mobile's future has been balancing on a tightrope for some time now. Originally planned for release in 2005, its release was then put back "indefinitely" in September 2006.

We reckon the PSP game will be revived sometime next year. But only if the PS3 games ships on time in 2008.
