Development On Gran Turismo 6 Has Already Begun

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.

    This is ridiculous, how about release the game already in production and then think about starting work on the next game. I hope GT5 does release this year, because I am getting frustrated with PD. If there sales are not as good as they expect, they can put the blame on themselves. If the sales are lower than expected, and they say we did not support them, I will say, well I did support you for the first 50 release dates that you gave.

    “I will say, well I did support you for the first 50 release dates that you gave.” I joining that chorus.

    Sales will end up being the same. Once the game is out people will buy it like hot cakes. This is not just any game, it’s “the real driving simulator”. This coming from a person that was arguably the most upset about the delay.

    dude, you need to learn to bite the cheese nothings ever going to be perfect!
    keep delaying the game just to do little tweaks and its never going to come out!
    the longer you delay it, the bigger grave your digging yourself!
    when a games in development for a year than sucks its a disappointment, when a games in development for 6 years and it sucks.
    well thats a whole other kettle of fish, thats the stuff which closes studios!

    GT5 won’t suck though, that’s my point. Once the game is actually out you’ll see that people will come up with a case of amnesia and flock to it.

    no,no, im not saying it will suck, im saying will it live up to the hype?
    6 years of development, the expectations are sky high!
