Polyphony not focused on GT5 now, 2010 release likely

You’d think that the guys at Polyphony would be hard at work on Gran Turismo 5 right now, but it seems they are not. In fact, according to Kazunori Yamauchi, who is the founder of the company, they are currently more focused on releasing updates for Gran Turismo 5 Prologue at the moment. Because of this they’d happy to release GT5 in late 2009, or maybe as late as 2010.

The news comes from IGN who asked the founder what’s the status on the full Gran Turismo 5. Kazunori Yamauchi then commented “Of course after this next update, we’re going to have another update later on in the year,” in regards to the work Polyphony is doing with GT5P.

He then went onto says “There’s no plans in the works for GT5 yet – that might be 2009, or it might be 2010… But we’re totally focused on getting the updates through for Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, and that’s all we’re focused on.
