As many fans of the Gran Turismo series knows, Gran Turismo Sport was suppose to have a beta this year. However, according to series creator Kazunori Yamauchi, the beta has been cancelled in order to make sure the full game is released this year.
When Video Gamer asked for a comment, Yamauchi replied..
“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.”
