Racing fans had to assume that Kazunori Yamauchi and Polyphony Digital was already working on Gran Turismo 6 .
But you know what happens when we assume; it's always better to hear it straight from the horse's mouth. In speaking to IGN , Yamauchi first spoke about future plans for GT5 downloadable content, and then confirmed the team's work on GT6. Try not to get too excited.
As for new content in GT5, Yamauchi said:
"I think that will include cars and trucks that we’ll be releasing maybe once every two months or so from here on out. What we do from here on is also really dependent on the reaction of the users to this first DLC that we just released because this is the first one."
It's great that we get new stuff every couple of months, isn't it? Now, it seems clear that he means "tracks" and not "trucks;" translations can be iffy sometimes. At any rate, Yamauchi says they still have "a pool of materials" they can release as DLC, which is fantastic news for those who can't get enough of GT5.
But hey, we can always look forward to the future, can't we? Check it out:
"Of course we’re working on GT6 already and 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."
He didn't say if the next GT will release on the PlayStation 3. Typically, we have to wait a while for each new entry, and it seems very possible that GT6 could end up on Sony's next machine. Of course, that depends entirely on Sony's console plans…
