Rumor: Gran Turismo 5 to Drop in 2009?

While nothing is concrete on the release date for Gran Turismo 5, GTPlanet has come across a rumor which may be rather enticing for those who are eagerly awaiting the popular PlayStation driving simulator.

According to an “unofficial but extremely reliable source,” a 2009 release date is “almost certain,” but the Amazon.com date of December 29th is supposedly incorrect. Not hard to imagine, given that follows all the heavy Christmas traffic.

GTPlanet does not want to give the specifics, as Sony has not announced the date and is still free to change it, but they expect the official date will be announced at their August 18th press conference during GamesCom Cologne.
