News seems to have been leaked online about the next Gran Turismo game, Gran Turismo 6 was apparently announced at a Sony event today, however when website el33tonline released a press release about the game it was ordered to take down the information due to it being embargoed.
Fortunately for us, what's on the internet stays on the internet and information about the game has now been discovered.
Below is a quote from Kazunori Yamauchi at a 15th Anniversary event for the Gran Turismo franchise talking about the upcoming PS3 release.
"It is amazing to think that it is 15 years since we first released Gran Turismo," he said. "Things have changed a lot since then and now Gran Turismo 6 is a further evolution of my dream. We're pleased to deliver Gran Turismo 6 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," he added. "I am very pleased with everything about the new game and the new additions, but the launch will be only the beginning for Gran Turismo 6. 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."
Apparently the embargo on information about the game is due to be lifted this evening so look back later today for the full scoop on Gran Turismo 6.
It is very interesting that this is a PS3 release considering the PS4 is not far away, it is safe to assume that they must have been working on this for a long time and therefore what they have produced would not be representative of what the PS4 can achieve. I do wonder if this game will be taken over to the PS4 at a later date, maybe with improved textures. Hopefully the flurry of information tonight will give us all the details we need.
