Yamauchi: GT5 release “not too far”, will “very probably” receive simultaneous worldwide release

Polyphony Digital head honcho Kazunori Yamauchi has said that Gran Turismo 5‘s release is not too “far away”, but will also “very probably” receive a simultaneous release worldwide.

In an interview with Multiplayer.it, Yamauchi said: “The game is still under development but its release is not too far, it will be after the PSP GT release and, very probably, it will be a simultaneous world release”

At GamesCom earlier this month, a brochure for Gran Turismo 5 was given out saying the game would be released in the fourth quarter of 2009, adding to Yamauchi’s “not too far” statement.

Yamauchi’s also confirmed that the game will also feature 1,000 cars, YouTube support and more. These were all leaked on the game’s official site.

“We would like to wait to publish them, but what you read on the site is true.”

He also confirmed that the game will be played in true HD 1080p running at a solid 60 frames per second.
