Gran Turismo 5 will officially launch on the 3rd of November in Japan, the same date it will launch in Europe as well. The European release date was previously confirmed last month at GamesCom 2010 in Cologne, Germany. The 2nd of November launch date was announced at E3.
Racing fans will have to wait a bit longer to get behind the wheel of the 1000 or so cars planned for GT5. And while the wait is nothing new for those looking forward to GT5, the time should pass a little easier with the bountiful supply of GT5 related media that has been released over the past week.
Gran Turismo has been in development for about half a decade, but that’s because the game was built from scratch. When asked by Autoweek about when the public can expect a GT6, Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi said:
“You won’t have to wait as long as you did for GT5. GT5 was basically the creation of a whole new operating system, and developing GT6 will be like adding new applications that run on that new operating system.”
With some features, such as go-kart racing, that were supposedly planned for GT6 having found their way into GT5 racing fans should have a lot to look forward to when GT6 releases.
