That's another 10 years..for GT6 LOL...they just released 5 and now Polyphony is now HYPING up GT6?! GeezPleez..i'm still tuning my "hybrid" lol.
Polyphony Digital head Kazunori Yamauchi believes oft-delayed racer should be out by Christmas, says work on sequel is already under way.
On the day that Gran Turismo 5 was supposed to be on store shelves, Polyphony Digital head Kazunori Yamauchi indicated that it had just gone gold. In a November 2 interview, the notoriously perfectionist developer said that "the discs are being stamped as we speak."
Yamauchi did not, however, give a release date for the long-delayed racer, which was first teased at the 2005 Electronic Entertainment Expo. In another interview from the SEMA auto show in Las Vegas, he told Autoweek magazine that, contrary to online retailers' listings, he expects Gran Turismo 5 to arrive before Christmas.
"There should be an announcement soon," he said.
More interestingly, Yamauchi said that work has already begun on Gran Turismo 6. While he was short on details, he did drop a hint at the scale of the project. "It's not something that we can talk that lightly on," he said. "It took 2,000 days to get all the ideas that went into GT5. It's just too early to be talking about GT6."
When it does finally ship, Gran Turismo 5 will feature close to 1,000 vehicles on more than 70 tracks in 20-plus locations. With a massive budget of $60 million, it is also an official licensee of several major racing circuits, such as NASCAR and the World Rally Championship. A sample of the PlayStation 3-exclusive Gran Turismo 5 Prologue was released in April 2008, garnering decent reviews.

I find it shocking that GT5 may get out before Afrika (another PS3 pre release hype game). Even DNF will be out before Afrika
@xtoda7 they were finished with five, all that happened was they missed a disc manufacturing deadline. that was the point of this article; five is shipping, and they're already working on six. @everyone else: IMO, the fact they're already working on six despite all the complainers and whiners shows true dedication to their craft. GT5 was an ambitious project, of course it was going to take a few years. It's not a fantasy game where you can create whatever and release it like Duke Nukem Forever, which GT5 is somehow the equivalent of despite that DNF's been in development since the N64/PS days? Really? (And on that note, the delay has one high point coming out of it; DNF might've been a PC only game when it was supposed to come out, but now 2/3 console/PC owners get to play it.) With GT5 you have real cars, licensing issues, music licensing issues, real world race track licensing issues which probably went into a lot of the delays. And that they have over 1000 cars and 70 courses. The game will be out when it's out, play some of the other great games in the mean time for all the systems instead of ***chin and moanin.'
This annoys me. All energy should be directed at getting 5 out ON TIME. Then start making comments about 6.
Im so excited for this game man, im prepped i bought the G27 wheel and the Play SEat evolution, damn thing cost me more then my playstastion twice fold, but this game is all worth it!!
@Spectrethered, http://www.polyphony.co.jp/english/list.html, polyphony sold 11 million copies of GT4. I don't know the margin of video games these days, but assuming Polyphony is making 20 dollars per game, and they match sales, thats 220 million dollars. 220 million > 60 million. Don't worry. And I think 20 dollars is conservative. Anyone sell video games that can give an estimate?
60 million dollar budget? Are they really going to recoup their losses with this title? How much were the licenses that they purchased to use in this game? They can't be getting that much from each sell? I'm not hating I'm just worried that the next one will be a significant scaled down version if this one doesn't sell well. Cause I'm going to buy a copy, now we just need 15 million other people to buy one too.
i dont even know if im going to get this game, cus im not that big of a fan of curcit racing, i more prefer street racing.
I swear this game is going to cost more than my playstation did at the rate it's going. I ain't complaining like, it's going to be immense. But I can't see the RRP being a standard 49.99 :/ To be honest though if the WRC side of things is up to scratch I won't mind ebaying my dog for this!
we enjoyed soo mcuh with 5 th game that we wwant now 6th Goood someone remind them that we did not played 5th game yet :D
Wow! 1,000 cars! Amazing! It'll be so much fun to be able to drive that many cars in... 20 locations? 20? I don't care how many "tracks" there are. You know there will be 20 main tracks, then the "reverse" versions (that's 40), then different race types will have specialty courses that are part of the "main track" to make the rest. I would've happily "settled" for 500 cars and 40 locations, or better yet 250 cars and 50 locations. Who is going to race all those cars? That was one of my peeves with Forza3. It was a great racing game, but after you had your choice ride for each class (about 10 cars) the tracks got old because you were racing them (or a derivative) over and over and over. Over 5 years developing and we only get 20 locations???
LoL u guys didn't understand, they're going to skip gran turismo 5 and just launch the 6, by the time this is taking.
If I enjoy playing GT5, I will enjoy playing GT6. But the question is not if I will ENJOY playing GT5, the question is if I will BE playing GT5.
I CAN'T WAIT FOR GT6! By the time GT6 will be announced to be released "soon", I will be watching teasers and trailers for it while traveling on my own personal spaceship flown by my robot butler while talking to my alien best friend about GT6 on my holo-phone and pre-order the game for my 137th birthday!
Just found this: http://www.vgreleases.com/News-642741.aspx Is it true? Make's it sound pretty concrete. Gotta figure they'd let everyone else know about it, it's right around the corner.
and with the jail break issue.. there will be a way to get around the 3.50 firmware soon (im sure) so will they wait for the next firmware too then it will be a game that is getting constantly getting patched and never released... good way to loose money is piracy?..... heres a better way, piss of the people that will buy your game!
FFS,i dont care what excuses, prologue was suppost to tie us over for a while and then dates keep getting pushed back.... not good enough in my opinion... why not release what they had, make a proper game with the prologue release that as GT5 then continue work and make GT6 later..... just like GT3 and 4. though i can't wait for it to be finnaly released.
Why can't we enjoy our games without comparing the one at hand to the sequel in progress? They should keep this information underwraps for about a year until they actually have it on paper.
@E_U_D_A_E_M_O_N, GT5 was delayed again because of jailbreak issue. Sony wanted the game to be update to the latest 3.50 firmware. http://dukio.com/ps3-jailbreak/gran-turismo-5-delayed-blames-ps3-jailbreak.html

In support to what E_U_D_A_E_M_O_N ill repeat his post: "FIRM DATE Nov 2nd 2010 - many people pre-paid/pre-ordered based on that news! Polyphony (Mr Yamauchi) gladly takes money for pre-orders - then with no shame fails to deliver and announces yet another delay! IS THIS THE NEW TREND?!?!?!? Will all gaming companies be playing this gimme your money 1st and we'll see when we'll get you your product? I can bet other gaming companies are watching this with interest to see if they too could get away with this sort of marketing. Well, I for one (being a fan of GT series from the beginning) will no longer tolerate such marketing BS! I will NEVER EVER EVER EVER again even consider another Polyphony/GT title of ANY kind EVER again. I can only hope other gamers will join in the protest and also refuse any future tiltes from this or any other company that uses similar marketing tactics. Mr Yamauchi, I can't believe you had enough face to even mention GT6 - I can imagine all the laughs, ... do you even THINK WE CARE?!?!!!!"
WAITING AND WAITING AND WAITING AND WAITING WAITING AND WAITING AND WAITING AND WAITING WAITING AND WAITING AND WAITING AND WAITING WAITING AND WAITING AND WAITING AND WAITING WAITING AND WAITING AND WAIWAITING AND WAITING AND WAITING AND WAITING AND............................ WAITING
Wow! GT6 will be out before GT5 :-) ..... But c`mon Mr Yamauchi this is beyond a joke now! Also you owe me £600 for the 4 days holiday i took off work for the november 2nd release date :-(

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the announcement of GT6 was amazingly obvious. They've obviously got more ideas than they could ever fit into GT5, hence the massive delays, so rather than keep this one going they'll finish it off and throw all of the leftover ideas into the next game straight off the bat.
as long as GT5 is worth it i don't mind how long it takes. the quality of the game above all else i say...
I was already ticked off by the delays and now Polyphony Digital is hinting at GT6 and there isn't a solid release date for GT5! SHUT UP Polyphony Digital.
lol, now who in their right mind waste time working on a sequel to a game that already years behind anyhow the good news is that GT6 would be far behind if ever GT5 comes out kinda like halos poured out after halo3
