According to a forum thread on NeoGAF, there’s a media event taking place at Silverstone on May 15th to celebrate Gran Turismo’s 15th birthday. We did a bit of Googling in an effort to find out more, and rumour has it that a Gran Turismo 6 reveal could be on the cards.
The event invitation, which can be viewed here, reads “Join us to celebrate 15 years of Gran Turismo, and discover exciting announcements about its future”. To be frank, “its future” could mean anything, but considering Polyphony Digital has been working on GT6 since 2010, and that SCEE’s loose-lipped Senior VP Michael Denny said on record that GT6 will arrive this year, this rumour could be right on money.
We’ve dropped a line to our Sony contact asking if the invite’s authentic. Stay tuned.
UPDATE: Though Sony has yet to respond to our enquiry, the following video has recently surfaced on YouTube – proving the event is indeed legit. And GT6? Well, pay close attention to the footage from 0:33 and judge for yourselves…
Many thanks for the heads up @omnibusse!
