It's Official: Sony Are Showing "What's Next" For Gran Turismo On May 15th

May 15th will be the day that the next Gran Turismo is revealed.

Following an early leak today, Sony have confirmed to TheSixthAxis that they’ve hired Silverstone on the 15th of May and will be showing “what’s next” for the Gran Turismo series.

The statement from SCEE says that the company will be hosting a “celebration of the 15th anniversary” of the series at the Silverstone circuit, and the event will feature Kazunori Yamauchi himself, who will “provide an update on the future of the Gran Turismo game.”

Most assume it’ll be Gran Turismo 6 – the video above gives that away nicely in exactly the same way Sony did with the PS4 in New York. TheSixthAxis believes it’ll be for PS3.

In addition, five GT Academy champions will be present, “showing off their real-world racing skills with some high-speed passenger laps”. The statement teases the inclusion of the host track.

“The Gran Turismo franchise continues to be extremely important to PlayStation,” says Sony’s Jim Ryan, president of SCEE. “We felt that 15 years of GT was an event worth celebrating along with our colleagues from the Americas, Asia and Japan.

TheSixthAxis still hasn’t seen an invite.

The official site has been updated.

    What I took from that teaser:

    1. The car sounds have been beefed up. Yes I know they are not necessarily ‘In Game’ but judging by the way they are prominently featured with effects, and the fact the lifeless car sounds were a big criticism of the past game I think PD are probably trying to suggest something/make a point.

    2. The next game will have more atmosphere. Another criticism the last game received that PD are obviously hinting at.

    3. The next game will have Silverstone! Awesome.

    4. Didn’t want to board the hype train with this iteration after the tantric release of the last game. I’ve now just bought my ticket…

    Cannot wait. Very much looking forward to this. Fingers crossed. Loving the old GT1 music in the trailer. Aaah, the memories.

    I cannot for the life of me see this being PS3. GT5 was massive and having GT6 so soon after 5 is odd. Can’t see a vita version either in conjunction with a console version. I am though hoping I’m wrong.

    Almost makes my copies of GT1 and GT2 seem like a collectables now…..although the GT2 GT disc has lost the pit-stop smell when rubbed :P

    Pumped for this reveal! ;)

      It’s not open to TSA, so if you get in I’ll be furious!

        If I do drive to Silverstone, and I am allowed anywhere near it, all the info will be funnelled TSA’s way. :)

        One day Sony will realise how big you guys are and how many racing fans are on here.

        Yeah, very disappointing. Especially after all the racing stuff we do, the clubs, GT5 etc.

        That’s the way it is, though. Nothing we can do.

    If I were them I would announce Last Guardian as a PS4 launch title May 20th. I don’t care if it is true or not, just do it.

    Seriously, they need to show Last Guardian at E3 or TGS.
