Polyphony head Kazunori Yamauch has said in an interview in this week’s Famitsu that he could release Gran Turismo 5 “any time we want”.
Of course, he could release it now instead of March 2010 in Japan at least. But Yamauchi will be taking his time on this one.
“Naturally, my attention is focused purely on Gran Turismo 5 right now. The scale of this title is just dizzying, so daily progress is slow, but it’s still going forward at a steady clip. All the basic stuff is complete, but we’re trying to give everything that little bit extra at present. We could release it any time we want, really, but I want to have that classic GT-style ‘did we really have to go this far?’ feel going. I want to go way beyond gamer expectations.”
Shame. Japan gets it first in March 2010.
Thanks, GT Planet.
