Kazunori Yamauchi is back in action on Twitter today, re-confirming one of the most-asked-for features in Gran Turismo 5 is still “under development”. Via Google Translator:
Saving [in] the middle of the race is under development.
Being able to pause, save, and resume a race at a later time has been on player’s wish-lists since the series first introduced endurance events. Sure enough, not long after the launch of GTPlanet’s Feedback Forum – where the community can vote on what features they’d like to see implemented or changed in GT5 – “In Race Saves” quickly jumped to the top, having now received well over 9,000 votes.
However, as is usual, it is still unknown when such an option will become available. While this isn’t the first time Kazunori has mentioned in-race saves, this should provide re-assurance for those of you who are so eagerly awaiting the feature.
