A Gran Turismo 6 PS4 release has been teased by online retailers, just days before the game is set to be formally showcased.
With a Gran Turismo 6 unveiling widely expected to take place later this week at the infamous Silverstone circuit in the UK, Nordic retailer CDON has already listed the title online, suggesting the next-generation racing simulator will touch down for Sony’s upcoming PS4 console.
Although suggesting the game will cost 649 Swedish Kronor (£65), the retailer has failed to offer details of a precise Gran Turismo 6 PS4 release date, casting doubt over the validity of the claims.
With the GT series a frequent addition to Sony’s flagship list of PlayStation exclusive titles, the as yet unfinalised Gran Turismo 6 has also been listed as landing for the current PS3 console, suggesting the game will help bridge the inevitable gap that will emerge between the two generations of consoles.
Celebrating the 15th anniversary of the Gran Turismo franchise, Sony last week issued invites to an upcoming GT event, suggesting the showcase will focus on “exciting announcements about its future.”
Set to be held this Wednesday, May 15, it has been claimed that the upcoming Gran Turismo 6 unveiling could see Sony confirm the title’s PS4 release date, offering the biggest insight yet as to when the next-gen console will hit retailers. To date, Sony has offered no more precise detail on the PS4 arrival than stating the “2013 holiday season.”
Although long known to have been in the works, no Gran Turismo 6 footage has yet been seen, with series head Kazunori Yamauchi confirming back in November 2010 that the game was in development.
With Gran Turismo 5 having been struck by repeated delays, an issue that caused much anger among the game’s die-hard fans, Yamauchi stated at the time: “It’s not something that we can talk that lightly on. It took 2,000 days to get all the ideas that went into GT5. It’s just too early to be talking about GT6.”
