Yamauchi confirms Polyphony already working on GT6
Plenty of Gran Turismo 5 DLC also promised.
Polyphony Digital’s main man Kazunori Yamauchi has led slip that his team is already busy over at the Tokyo-based studio cooking up a new release for the Gran Turismo franchise.
“Of course we’re working on GT6 already,” Yamauchi said in an interview with IGN. “I think what really will be the separating factor is something that we can’t update through a DLC is something that obviously has to be saved for GT6. Things that we can provide through DLC we will, so that’s really the market difference.”
Elsewhere, Yamauchi said that heaps of DLC is incoming to GT5. “It’s been about a year since we’ve released the game and in the interim we’ve had about 15 updates that were performed on the game. These set up the basic platform for the system. Now that we have that out of the way, we’re ready to release more expansions and content to add to the game.”
While he confirmed that work on GT6 is already underway, he failed to mention whether we’ll see the sim racer’s next release on the PlayStation 3 (which going by the company’s history is such a difficult task to deliver alongside the promised DLC commitment for GT5). Do you think Sony is saving Gran Turismo 6 for the PlayStation 4, as a launch title, perhaps?
