Let’s sing a song shall we? It goes like this: I see the blessings, I see the blessings, I see the blessings 2X. Showers of blessings, showers of blessings – are coming down, are coming down, are coming down, down, down, down!
Gran Turismo 6 is already under development.
Can you even believe it? But it comes from this news comes to us via the man himself: Kazunori Yamauchi. When asked by Autoweek if the 1969 Chevy Camero, the winner of this year’s SEMA Gran Turismo award, would make it into GT6 instead of GT5, the boss said: “Right”.
He was even asked directly further down in the interview if development on the game had already commenced, to which is response was simply “yeah”, but went on to say it was “too early” to talk about it.
“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 explained.
He also made known why the game was delayed last month, this time with more specifics.
“It was really to adjust it so it would be perfect,” said Yamauchi.
“The first game that I made was Motor Toon Grand Prix for the first PlayStation. The year and a half that it was in development, the last three months as the release date approached, myself and my staff were getting three hours of sleep a day to try and get the game done.
Near the end, the people from Sony came to our development studio and told us it was good enough and that we could release it. At the time, I probably wasn’t thinking very clearly, being as exhausted as I was, and I talked myself into thinking this was good enough and it went to release.
But all the things I thought were not enough yet, the users said the exact same thing when the game came out. That was something I regretted very much when that happened because I knew it was coming. And that happened at the beginning of my career, and it was something I vowed would never happen again.”
He concluded assuring that he was confident Gran Turismo 5 would be out by Christmas, land made known that there was an announcement coming soon.
