While gamers across the world are finally getting their hands on the oft-delayed Gran Turismo 5, series creator Kazunori Yamauchi and his team are working on the inevitable follow-up.


Website Eurogamer asked Yamauchi if Gran Turismo 6 will appear on the PlayStation 3 or Sony's next console. The game designer stated that he "doesn't know".

"Ten years ago it was easier to predict what would happen three years in the future," he added. "Nowadays no-one knows what happens in the future. In three years, we don't know what will happen."

When Eurogamer pressed on whether GT6 would miss this generation, Yamauchi "laughed and shrugged".

Previously, Yamauchi stated that Gran Turismo 5 might have "too much detail" that could be better suited for the next PlayStation.


The 5 years (give or take) in-development Gran Turismo 5 was finally released this week.

Gran Turismo 1 & 2: original PSX.

Gran Turismo 3 & 4: Playstation 2.

Seeing this trend, it wouldn't surprise me to see GT6 making it on the PS3. They already have the graphic engine, and a lot of cars, and tracks, so they can definitely polish and use those assets to improve the GT5 experience and add more cockpit views and better damage modeling and whatnot for GT6.

The PS3 is 4 years into it's lifecycle. Considering it has about 6 years left, I don't see why GT6 couldn't make it for this console. My bet is it will, in about 3 or 4 years.
