Gran Turismo 6 announced by Sony
Sony today announced that Gran Turismo 6 is officially on the way for the PlayStation 3 this holiday season.
Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi made the announcement today during an event in Japan that was held to commemorate the 15th anniversary.
“It is amazing to think that it is 15 years since we first released Gran Turismo,” explained Kazunori Yamauchi, during the announcement at Silverstone Circuit. “Things have changed a lot since then and now Gran Turismo 6 is a further evolution of my dream. We’re pleased to deliver GT6 to PlayStation 3 as we have a very loyal community on that platform. However, we have refactored the game to make it very flexible and expandable, with a view to making many future developments. I am very pleased with everything about the new game and the new additions, but the launch will be only the beginning for GT6. The game will continue to develop throughout its life. I already have many ideas for things I want to achieve in the next 15 years of Gran Turismo!”
