Polyphony Digital boss Kazunori Yamauchi has confirmed that Gran Turismo 6 will receive a large launch day patch. He told Eurogamer that things like the enhanced audio functions and other features will be patched in on launch day.
“It’s the same every time. Everything’s very tight. It’s an incredibly tight schedule. As to being able to include everything we want to on day one, we probably won’t be able to. I think for the 12 months following the release we’ll continue to update the software. Because in Gran Turismo 6 we’re preparing a lot of different things we haven’t even touched on yet.”
He went on to talk about how games have moved on from a boxed product into a constant service. Even as they nearing the end of development they are still creating and thinking of new features to add to the game.
Gran Truismo will release worldwide for PS3 on December 6th.
