Developer Polyphony Digital has confirmed it is already hard at work on the next instalment in the Gran Turismo series.
"Of course we're working on GT6 already," studio boss Kazunori Yamauchi told IGN, backing up previous claims.
When asked how he decides what content to release as GT5 DLC and what to save for GT6, he replied: "I think what really will be the separating factor is; something that we can't update through a DLC is something that obviously has to be saved for GT6. Things that we can provide through DLC we will, so that's really the market difference."
Fortunately, none of this means that DLC for GT5 will dry up. On the contrary, regular updates are promised following the release of the game's first DLC earlier this month.
"It's been about a year since we've released the game and in the interim we've had about 15 updates that were performed on the game,” he added.
These set up the basic platform for the system. Now that we have that out of the way, we're ready to release more expansions and content to add to the game.
"I think that will include cars and trucks that we'll be releasing maybe once every two months or so from here on out. What we do from here on is also really dependent on the reaction of the users to this first DLC that we just released because this is the first one. Now we have the feedback from our customers and we'll see how that will affect what we will do from here."
