Kazunori Yamauchi, producer of the Gran Turismo series, was not willing to give an exact date for the release of Gran Turismo 6. When asked about it at Gran Turismo 5 Asia Championship event 2012, he had the following to say:
If I carelessly say when it will be released, you’ll end up with people saying things like ‘it’s been delayed again!?’ so I will no longer say at this type of event.
Furthermore, Yamauchi also implied that Gran Turismo 6 will not be given a release date until they felt the game would be ready enough to meet the given deadline. This probably is a wise move by Polyphony digital considering the fiasco that surrounded the release of Gran Turismo 5 when it was delayed numerous times.
Let’s just hope that the wait for Gran Turismo 6 is not as long and arduous as Gran Turismo 5.
