New Gran Turismo 6 Tracks to Release Monthly as DLC

Gran Turismo 6 334 June 18, 2013 by

An interview with U.S. Gran Turismo producer Taku Imasaki recorded after last month’s GT6 reveal was just recently published by GamerHub.tv, and it contained a few interesting tidbits of information.

First, Taku confirms that all recent SEMA Gran Turismo Award-winning cars will be available in the game, which would refer to the following:

These highly customized cars will likely join other previous winners already featured in GT5, including Art Morrison’s 1960 Corvette and JR Rocha’s Infiniti G37.

Taku also reveals some interesting aspects of how Polyphony Digital captures track data, stating that teams of over a dozen people can spend “weeks” at a circuit, examining different seasons and lighting conditions.

He also hints at the company’s recent visit to Australia’s Mount Panorama Circuit, where the scanning team was spotted by local GTPlanet community members.

Finally, the interview helps shed some light on the large scale of downloadable content players can expect to be released for Gran Turismo 6 after its release, as Taku confirms that “at least one additional track per month will be downloadable.”

Considering that “over 33 locations and 71 track layouts” have already been confirmed to be included in GT6 from “day 1” in the official announcement, the game’s track roster could grow quickly in size throughout 2014.
