Gran Turismo 6 is a PS3 game, Sony lets slip

Publish date:

That Sony's PlayStation 4 announcement event ended without any mention of Gran Turismo 6 raised a few eyebrows, but there may be an explanation to why it was absent – it isn't a PS4 game at all.

SCEE senior vice president Michael Denny has been heard on an audio clip (published by GTPlanet) telling Silicon Republic that GT6 is, in fact, set to release on PS3. He even went so far as to mention it as a 2013 release.

You look at the games coming out on PlayStation 3 this year,” Denny says, The Last of Us, Beyond, GT6.”

Responding to the news, Sony told IGN, In 2010, Kazunori Yamauchi confirmed that Polyphony Digital had commenced development for Gran Turismo 6. We look forward to sharing further details on this title in the near future.”

Gran Turismo 6 arriving on PS3 shouldn't be a big surprise considering Sony's commitment towards aging platforms even close to the beginning of a new generation. Both God of War 2 and Shadow of the Colossus arrived on PS2 close to the launch of PS3.

If GT6 is indeed arriving on PS3 this year, we should hear about it pretty soon.
