Few driving games have had the success that Gran Turismo has garnered over the years. Starting with the first version for the Playstation, up until now, the series has been the definitive racing video game for auto lovers.
Despite this, our patience has been tested as of late. The fifth installment of the series has been delayed numerous times and even though we keep getting word of a holiday release date, one never knows anymore. Predicting the release date of Gran Turismo 5 is like predicting the weather in the year 2031.
Now, we have word from Autoweek that the series developers are already looking ahead to the sixth version. The game’s creator, Kazunori Yamauchi, confirmed that they’re working on it, but would say no more about it. We have no idea when to expect the release of such a game or what it might have in it. The way Gran Turismo 5 is going, we might not see the sixth one until the next decade.
“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,” Yamauchi said to Autoweek.
Okay, Yamauchi, we’ll talk about it in say...2,500 days?
