Gran Turismo 6 officially announced


Today, Sony and developer Polyphony Digital has announced Gran Turismo 6, the latest best selling racing franchise in  PlayStation history and  it’s expected to launch this year  ‘Holiday’ of 2013 on the PlayStation 3. The news was revealed today in a small event held at Britain’s historied Silverstone by Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi at the 15-year anniversary.

“It is amazing to think that it is 15 years since we first released Gran Turismo. Things have changed a lot since then and now Gran Turismo 6 is a further evolution of my dream.  We’re pleased to deliver GT6 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. I am very pleased with everything about the new game and the new additions, but the launch will be only the beginning for GT6. 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!
