During an event at Silverstone race track to celebrate 15 years of Gran Turismo, series creator and head of Polyphony Kazunori Yamauchi has announced that GT6 will be coming to Playstation 3 in time for “Holidays 2013”.
“I’d like to announce today that we are developing GT 6 for the holiday season this year on the PlayStation 3,” he revealed. “The game engine will be renewed for GT6, we’ll be cleaning it up, making it smoother for the future.
“The rendering engine will be completely renewed for GT 6, there will be a revamped Physics Engine, new suspension, tyre and aerodynamics modelling. We’ll have 200 more cars than Gran Turismo 5, with 1200 available at release. More cars will be released after launch, too.”
A statement from Sony, which was made available during the event, also stated that GT6 will include “expanded connectivity with other devices such as smart phones and tablets and increased social and community functions”.
This rather snazzy video was also released, giving us a small taster of what’s to come later this year.
We’re sorry there still aren’t any Porsche’s to be seen, but it just wouldn’t be Gran Turismo without an RUF dealership on the world map now, would it?
