Gran Turismo 6 Coming to PS3 this Holiday, PS4 Version being Considered

Today Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi has announced that Gran Turismo 6 will be making it's way to the PlayStation 3 and is scheduled for a holiday 2013 release.

"I'd like to announce today that we are developing GT 6 for the holiday season this year on the PlayStation 3," Yamauchi said. "The game engine will be renewed for GT6, we'll be cleaning it up, making it smoother for the future."

He also went on to say: "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."

GT6 will launch with all the courses and locations from Gran Turismo 5 as well ass all the vehicles. There are plans to release new courses and cars as DLC every month. There will also be a new track creator and they are going to encourage players to create their own championships.

As for a PS4 release, Yamauchi told IGN: “We actually do have a PlayStation 4 version in mind, but for this holiday season, we thought it would be best for users to release on PS3 for now.”

Sony also announced that Gran Turismo 5 has hit the 10 million sales mark and show no sign of slowing. Maybe it will stop when GT6 comes out?
