Yamauchi – Gran Turismo 6 will be “faster” to market than GT5

Monday, 28th September 2009 18:07 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Polyphony boss Kazunori Yamauchi told Joystiq in Japan last week that GT6 won’t take as long to develop as GT5. That’s good news, to be fair.

“GT5 is a title that was pretty much remade from scratch, but because we did that, the next version is actually going to be faster — the time period it’s going to be released,” said the developer.

“But I think when GT5 comes out, we’re still going to have things that are left undone, and whether we complete that in GT6, or the next version for PSP, I’m not sure yet.

“I’ve been working very hard for the last 15 years, and I think that hard work is just going to continue.”

GT5 ships in Japan on March 31.

    By the time they’re close to getting GT6 out the door, we’ll all be driving hover cars… which will no doubt lead to another delay.

    They promised jetpacks in the 1950′s, it delayed ever since :(

    I think if GT5 doesn’t blow our freakin’ socks off, we won’t be interested in GT6..

    I’m sure it’s the same situation as always, GT1 was the engine/concept and assets, GT2 was the same with 5x more content and polish, same as GT3 was a new base but with slim pickins and GT4 was everything and the kitchen sink.

    Maybe, just maybe, they ought to release GT5 *before* making any kind of commitment for GT6 to the public :-P
