Usually when a game is in development for more than 5 years, it’s usually considered vapor ware (read: never coming out) as is the case with Duke Nuke: Forever. However, this was not the case with Gran Turismo 5 as despite being in development for quite some time, it eventually made its way onto store shelves. Unfortunately, with all of the hype surrounding Gran Turismo 5′s ultra-realistic gameplay, it set the bar quite high for the actual game – a bar that would have been impossible to meet.
Luckily, it seems that there is hope as Polyphony Digital’s Kazunori Yamauchi (a.k.a the creator of Gran Turismo) has come forth to let us know that the studio believes one GT5 update per month sounds like a good idea. What exactly these updates will entail is any one’s guess but lets hope it brings with it some hefty new features. Additionally, he also goes on to state that he believes new premium cars will eventually be available as DLC. Of course, this doesn’t actually mean NEW cars but instead updates resolutions, fully modeled interiors and more for the ~800 cars that didn’t get the feature on launch.
As for new tracks and cars? Probably not. Yamauchi says there may be an expansion pack or they may just leave this content for the next title. In other words, don’t hold your breath.
