Every day, there's another Gran Turismo 5 release date update. Sorry about that. But it does qualify as news and besides, this sort of involves GT6…
The last assembly of information was somewhat encouraging, as we heard from GT creator Kazunori Yamauchi and noticed that the Sony Style store listed GT5 with an approximate November 30 date. Then there's that gonna-be-infamous-if-it-doesn't-come-out-this-year comment from Yamauchi, "the discs are being stamped as we speak." Now we know an announcement should be nigh but here's another little tidbit: Yamauchi confirmed that work had already begun on Gran Turismo 6 . This was part of Autoweek's interview that gave us the initial GT5 update from SEMA. Of course, the GT guru wasn't about to talk about the next installment just yet:
"It's not something that we can talk that 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."
Well yeah, you think? Let's somehow manage to get GT5 on store shelves first, shall we? Based on the current state of affairs, we're wondering if GT6 might actually be on the next generation of consoles; i.e., the PlayStation 4. It may seem unlikely on the surface but at this juncture…who knows? For the record, we're expecting a release date announcement next week. Just a guess. No, really.
