Gran Turismo 6 is for PlayStation 4 hints Polyphony Digital

gran turismo 6 is for playstation 4 hints polyphony digital

It’s been two years since Gran Turismo 5 hit retail and while series creator Kazunori Yamauchi has confirmed that Gran Turismo 6 is on the way, the racing game is still far from release. How far? There may not be a Gran Turismo 6 until there’s a PlayStation 4.

Gran Turismo fans are patient people. They hug turns steadily, they shift down to take inclines strong, and they do these things only after hours of tweaking the specifications of their automobiles. They will repeat laps in Gran Turismo 5 until they have the absolute perfect shot of their vehicle preserves. Polyphony Digital mastermind Yamauchi knows how patient his fans are, which is likely why he has no problem making them wait interminable stretches of time for his driving games. Gran Turismo 5 came out 5 and a half years after its E3 2005 announcement, and even then it wasn’t complete, needing multiple patches to reach its potential. Gran Turismo Portable for PSP had the same painstaking gestation.

Speaking at the China Joy event in Beijing on Thursday, Yamauchi hinted at an event for Gran Turismo 5 that the next entry in the series will be for Sony’s next-generation machine, sometimes called Orbis. Impress Watch (via Andriasang) reported that when asked about plans for Gran Turismo 6, Yamauchi said, “We’re always aiming for the latest technology and latest expression.”

There have been hints that a PlayStation Vita version of Gran Turismo is on the way as well. A Sony survey conducted in June asked whether people who bought a Vita version of Gran Turismo would be more likely to purchase it if it gave a discount on the same game for PlayStation 3. Since the survey came shortly after news about Polyphony’s scouting trips for locales to be featured in Gran Turismo 6, it was assumed that the next game in the series would be for PS3 and Vita.

Yamauchi’s statements and the recent announcement of Gran Turismo 5: Academy Edition throw that plan into question. Academy Edition is a new retail version of the game due out in September that includes all previously released DLC for the game as well as other new features. This could be the PS3 game Gran Turismo Vita will be based on. Yamauchi did express interest in making this game at the event, “If we were to make [Gran Turismo Vita], we’d like to make use of the ability to play anywhere and the ability to use 3G at any time.”
