Kazunori Yamauchi: GT6 will be released faster than GT5

Fans have waited many years to test drive the next installment of the Gran Turismo series, and finally next year their thirst will be quenched. The highly anticipated racing simulator will launch in Japan March 31st of 2010, and soon following will be the North American and European territories. The length between each Gran Turismo release has been reasonable, but for the PS3, it's been extremely painstaking. Polyphony Digital recognized the dilemma, hence the release of Prologue, which although being a well produced demo, went on to sell over 3 million copies, a testament to Gran Turismo's immense popularity. Kazunori has heard the cries of gamers, and according to him, the next game will be out noticeably faster.

The GT boss has been making media stops on major gaming websites, and in a recent interview with joystiq, Yamauchisan explained:

"Gran Turismo 5 is a title that was pretty much remade from scratch, but because we did that, the next version is actually going to be faster - the time period it's going to be released," Yamauchi said. "But I think when Gran Turismo 5 comes out, we're still going to have things that are left undone,and whether we complete that in Gran Turismo 6, or the next version for PSP, I'm not sure yet."

Kazunori it seems, flourishes in hard work, and has no intension of slowing, and although we here at Gamesthirst believe in taking a break every now and again, I must confess It feels good to know GT's boss has no mind of quitting, at least not yet. He went on:

"I've been working very hard for the last 15 years, and I think that hard work is only going to continue."

Keep working Sir, take a vacation once in a while, but you just keep on working.
