Sony seems to be cancelling pre-orders made for Gran Turismo Sport on the PSN. This may be done as a precaution due to the game’s most recent delay.
A user received a message via PSN that was shared by GT Planet. Sony confirms that it’s cancelling pre-orders for GT Sport at the moment.
Thank you for pre-ordering Gran Turismo Sport from PlayStation®Store. On 30th August 2016 we regrettably announced that the release of Gran Turismo Sport has been delayed until 2017. We do not have a new release date at this time. We have, therefore, decided to cancel your pre-order and refund your pre-order payment. This refund may take up to 7-10 days to be processed. Please keep a record of this message for future reference.
Once we have a new release date for Gran Turismo Sport we will offer a revised pre-order for it on the PlayStation®Store at the earliest opportunity. Thank you for your custom and please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused”
This is unusual, although it may have been done since there is no definite release date for GT Sport on PS4 at the moment. The game was going to be out this November, but now it will be released sometime in 2017.
