Gran Turismo 5 Creator Still Thinking About Bikes

Project Gotham added them. Burnout did too. Could Gran Turismo 5 be the latest car racing game to introduce motorbikes?

"The environment we have right now allows us to drive motorcycles, but we need to get Gran Turismo 5 done first," series creator Kazunori Yamauchi told PSM3. "Once that's out of the way, if there's a strong demand for bikes, that's something we'd consider."

It'd be a natural fit. Aside from the Gran Turismo series, the only other game Polyphony Digital have released in the past decade was Tourist Trophy, an ultra-realistic motorbike racing simulator. So the experience and the passion is certainly there.

Then again, Yamauchi said almost exactly the same thing a year ago, meaning this is as likely a pre-programmed marketing response as it is a genuine possibility.

    Tourist Trophy was built using the gt4 engine on the ps2 and it was excellent. Im sure i've still got some screen-shots (photo mode) around somewhere...

    wonder if he'll think about sticking to a release date too.
    That'd be nice

    Where does he get the time to be speaking to the media?! ...oh, riiiight ... when he should be getting the god damn game out!!!

    I forsee another delay... Then we find out it's an 18 month one while they add bloody bikes...

    A new tourist trophy would be fantastic!

    I'm sure it will eventually happen!
