Gran Turismo 5

This past holiday season was filled with a slew of pretty big titles, as every holiday season usually is. One of the finer titles that released during last years end-of-the-year gaming madness was Gran Turismo: Sport; a title in which definitely saw it’s fair share of issues during launch, but was honestly one of the most polished games that I enjoyed.

While I’ve only played it a handful of times, the times that I did have with the game were well enjoyed, so much so that I should probably find time to get back into it. If you aren’t like me however, and have been playing a ton of GT: Sport, odds are you are curious as to where the franchise will head after this entry. Well luckily, information has recently surfaced from an interview with series creator Kazunori Yamuchi, over on the Japanese website, Game Watch, where Yamauchi discussed a little bit about the future of the series.

While he didn’t really go into specifics, Yamauchi did state that he is already working on the next Gran Turismo game, but is currently unsure if the next game will in fact be the Gran Turismo 7 many are currently holding out for. Yamauchi did however mention that he would like the next title to have an inclusion of bikes, so perhaps that’s something we can look forward to in the next game.


While that isn’t a whole lot of information to go off of, it’s at least good to know that there are no plans of ceasing the Gran Turismo franchise anytime soon, and that it’s quite likely that we’ll see the next title released within the next 3-4 years. As far as the future of GT: Sport is concerned, series creator Yamauchi stated that the next update will add time trials to the VR mode of the game, as well as new cars and cars from past iterations.
