Back in 2010 Polyphony boss Kazunori Yamauchi already stated to be thinking up ideas for Gran Turismo 6. Now Brian Dunn, Associate Brand Manager at Sony Computer Entertainment America, accidentally revealed this on his Linkedin profile.
The full Gran Turismo 6 listing read:
“Managing the following titles and franchises at Sony Computer Entertainment America as product manager, handling strategic planning, day-to-day marketing activities, and lifecycle management: Gran Turismo 6 and GT franchise, The Last Guardian, MotorStorm, Journey, Carnival Island, other titles yet to be announced.
Directly supported Senior Product Manager to launch Gran Turismo 5, Gran Turismo PSP and Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, including managing licensing relationships with auto manufacturers. Part of the team that planned, executed and promoted of GT Academy program in North America in partnership with Nissan North America.”
Since it became public this info was taken down, only adding credit to the leak, so thanks to Neogaf for taking a screencap.
Fun tidbits about Gran Turismo 6:
Back in March this year the Gran Turismo team was taking pictures and scanning the track at Mount Panorama in Bathurst, New South Wales in Australia. AUSmotive magazine confirmed that they said the Mount Panorama Circuit will be included in Gran Turismo 6.
Here’s a video showing the track.
Nice to get confirmation Gran Turismo is in full development. Hopefully that means we’ll get on PS3, and not PS4. Although the latter is possible on account of Gran Turismo 5 infamously taking “2,000 days to get all the ideas that went into GT5” according to Mr. Yamauchi. That’s 5.5 years folks.
