Gran Turismo 6 page found on official site
Just in case somebody, somewhere was not yet aware that Gran Turismo 6 is a thing, Sony’s added a product page for the unannounced but inevitable sequel.
The currently blank product page tells us absolutely nothing about the game, but does seem to confirm its existence.
Gran Turismo 6 is one of the most poorly guarded secrets in Sony’s history. We’ve been hearing promises of an update on the racer since August last year, and we’re expecting it to be announced at a 15th anniversary event in the UK on May 15, which is bare hours away now.
So it’s definitely real, but some questions remain – are we expecting it on PlayStation 3, or PlayStation 4? And could it turn up as early as this year, as suggested by one executive?
If so, it’ll have beaten its younger sibling in terms of development time; Gran Turismo 5 spent five years in the works before releasing in 2010, with Gran Turismo 6 going into production immediately afterwards. The project went silent, but “of course” Polyphony was working on it.
Although the general PR tactic is to not talk about unannounced games, Polyphony staff and leader Kazunori Yamauchi are quite chatty on the subject, and have even been spotted in the wild, shooting the breeze with fans.
