The gold press has barely had time to cool for Gran Turismo 5, and Polyphony Digital leader Kazunori Yamauchi and his team already have their sights on the next installment in the long running driving franchise. And so the cycle begins anew.
Yamauchi told Autoweek (via The Sixth Axis) during this week’s 2010 SEMA trade-show in Las Vegas that while development on Gran Turismo 6 is in fact underway, “It’s not something that we can talk lightly on. It took 2,000 days to get all the ideas that went into GT5. It’s just too early to be talking about GT6.”
The Gran Turismo cretor was prompted to speak, briefly, about GT6 by a question about whether his pick for the SEMA Gran Turismo award – a 1969 Chevy Camero – would appear in the next Gran Turismo since it was too late to be included in GT5.
As for the most recent, and final, delay, Yamauchi echoed previous statements about it, adding, “It was really to adjust it so it would be perfect.”
My hope is that Polyphony Digital just doesn’t talk about GT6 until it’s a month away from being released…which should be at least five or six years from now. It would just save a lot of fans a lot of anxiety and stress. Wouldn’t you agree?
