Gran Turismo 6. We all know it's coming, it's just a matter of when. And that 'when' could be May 15 at an upcoming event at Silverstone, one of the most famous racetracks in the world.
First and foremost the event is a celebration of Gran Turismo's 15 year anniversary, but according to the Gran Turismo blog, creator Kazunori Yamauchi will be on hand at this event to discuss the 'future' of the Gran Turismo series. This could mean anything, but I'm going to go out on a limb and say that this event, combined with the above invites, suggest that some sort of unveiling will occur. Could this be the reveal of Gran Turismo 6? Will it be a current gen racer, or will it be a PlayStation 4 title?
The following statement from Jim Ryan, president of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, is cagey, but I'd be very surprised if we weren't given some sort of update or official announcement regarding Gran Turismo 6.
"The Gran Turismo franchise continues to be extremely important to PlayStation,” he said. "We felt that 15 years of GT was an event worth celebrating along with our colleagues from the Americas, Asia and Japan. We are very grateful to our manufacturer partners for helping us to bring together a fantastic event. As well as experiencing the development of the game and comparing the virtual and real, it will be a pleasure to see Yamauchi-san and hear what’s next for Gran Turismo."
