Kazunori Yamauchi, Polyphony Digital CEO, has stated in an interview with an Austrian magazine that the Gran Turismo franchise may expand beyond the PlayStation in future. Xbox 360 fans shouldn't get too excited however:
"It’s very unlikely that GT will be released for another console," Yamauchi said. "But perhaps it will appear on the PC. We could broaden its distribution that way, especially in the Chinese market."
Yamauchi has also stated that the full version of Gran Turismo 5 won’t be available until the end of 2009, and an upgrade to GT5 Prologue that will see crash damage added will be released around Spring 2008.
When pressed further, Yamauchi said that his dream was "to develop a role-playing game of similar quality to GT." Can't wait!
