That's smart, start working on a sequel for a game you haven't shipped yet, and still don't have an exact date for. They should be focusing on finishing GT5 and getting it out before "working" on GT6, otherwise he's going to start getting death threats if GT5 don't get released soon lol.

ALL major software titles (games, OSs, business software, etc...) work and plan many versions ahead.

Not that you care, you're just here to troll.
T9X69  +   1762d ago
Yea I guess you're right, I'm sure ND starting working on Uncharted 3 before they U2 they finished U3, and I'm sure Lionhead started working on Fable 4 before they finished Fable 3, and I'm sure Epic Games started working on Gears 3 before they finished Gears 2 right? Developers start working on their planned projects after a game has gone gold, GT5 doesn't even have a confirmed release date yet they are stamping the disc now? Yea right.

@plb - Did you not read my comment? Yea he said it's being stamped right now, he also said Nov 2nd was the official release date, and look how that turned out. They also said they would have information on the new release date before the end of Oct. Here it is November and still nothing.

I never said it's not possible they are planning GT6 or already have ideas for GT6, I said it's stupid for them to say they are working on GT6, when they cant even provide a release date for GT5, yet it's being stamped as we speak.

I'm sure they actually did. I'm a professional software developer, I know what is involved in making these things.

If you had any idea how complicated today's software systems were, you'd know how stupid you sound.
InfectedDK  +   1762d ago
When you create something new for a console like Killzone 2 or GT5 your next game is gonna get a lot easier to make. So ofcourse they are thinking ahead planning the next game. When they have made the new platform for their game they haven't just made that game but the new platform. We'll probably see GT6 in 2012.
Can't wait for GT5!! GOTY!

Tx9, did ya think that maybe theyre working on GT6 cos GT5 is finished??

DOI !!!
thehitman  +   1762d ago
There is always
lots of things that developers use from their previous games to make headway on their next. Usually ideas/things they cut out last minute because was too late too implement them. Happened in UC1 with UC2 happened with KZ2 for KZ3 pretty sure almost every dev does it that plans to make a sequel. Also a date is irrevelant at this point I know for sure it will be out before year end if they decide to tell us the date a day before wouldnt change anything.

t9x69 is either a very dedicated troll
or just plain dumb

i guess he think that games gets released and or a release date the day they finish the game

Kaz mentioned they were working on gt6 a few weeks after e3
Strikepackage Bravo  +   1762d ago
Relax people, T9X69 has a point
Its probably not a good idea to tell folks your working on GT6 when you still dont even have a release date for GT5.

He probably should have said right now our main focus is getting GT5 out.

You guys are way too defensive of anything Sony, you really need to grow a pair and demand better from them, this is ridiculous that we still have no release date, it was totally unprofessional a long time ago, and Sony/Poly should be ashamed of this blatant lack of respect they are showing the fans. Talk about amateur hour like behavior.

Come on! Why is GT6 taking so long??? It's had like 98238082634sin pi log e delays already! How can I buy GT5 when GT6 is just around the corner???

SuperM  +   1762d ago
Why the hell should he focus on GT5 when the game is done??? GT5 is no longer in production. Also T9X9 im pretty sure Gears3 started in development before Gears2 finished. And if Lionhead is making fable 4 then the game is probably already in production. Development on Motorstorm Apocalypse started well before pacific rift was out just to give an example.

Its natural for developers to want to get a head start when making a new game. At different stages in development you require different type of resources. So at the late stage of development they put resources they dont need to finish the game to work on the next project.

GT 6 on PS4. GT 5 took 5 years development.

If you fvcking watch the making of docu of Uncharted 2 on PSn you would have known that immediately after they finished UC1 they started brainstorming for UC2. Some studios even have a small team start on the sequel of their game before they finished the current project if a sequel was already planned. This being a racing game it's guarantee to have a sequel. How many fvcking Forzas have there been in the last 5 years?

This only proves that Gt5 is done and in the production process.

Why so angry? T9X69 has a point whether you like it or not. A hug and a few kleenex would do you some good.

raztad  +   1762d ago
People said something similar about KZ3, when KZ2 took at least 4 years to make. And well, I'm bug testing KZ3 beta, with release data Feb/22/2010.

Point is. Engine is ready, Premium cars are GT6 quality already. They just need to figure out what new stuff they want in the sequel, add new more premium cars and here you go GT6.

thief  +   1762d ago
Thats a good analogy. Both games also had a lengthy artificial delay after the game was almost done, for KZ2 to avoid clashing with Resistance 2 and GT5 to polish a few features. I would expect xmas 2012 at the latest for GT6, with an enhanced track editor, further improvement in damage modelling and premium cockpit views in all cars.
nycredude  +   1762d ago
Don't forget Uncharted 2 took only 18 months or so, with more content and more polish than pretty much everything.

Naughty Dogs don't count though. They use magic.

Convas  +   1762d ago
Yep, we'll be seeing GT6 in exactly 10 years. How does this work? Why isn't the main priority getting GT5 out of the door?
big_silky  +   1762d ago
because nobody at sony has a fire under their ass. everything is either delayed or has a release date of "whenever*
Akagi  +   1762d ago
How can they make it even more of a priority? Ramp the stamping machines up to 11? They're filling demand, pre-orders and such. Just because they don't have an agressive ad-campaign like a M$ game, don't think it isn't a priority for Sony.
frankymv  +   1762d ago
Yamauchi has previously mentioned GT6. Said it would not take nearly as long to develop it since they will use many elements from 5.

Strikepackage Bravo  +   1762d ago
They used elements from previous GT#
games in GT5, around 800 elements to be exact, (cars from previous games) and it still took them 5 years.

And Alan Wake took 5 years to make
Even though it uses "elements" from Alone in the Dark 4 (using light to defeat enemies).

-End statement
Finalfantasykid  +   1762d ago
They re-wrote the engine essentially from scratch. And not to mention the premium cars are so detailed, they map just about every fine detail there is on the car.

I think the engine (physics and graphics) + the premium cars is what took them 80% of the time to make the game. I don't think you comprehend the detail there is in this game.

"Developers start working on their planned projects after a game has gone gold, GT5 doesn't even have a confirmed release date yet they are stamping the disc now? Yea right."

Since you know more about GT5's development cycle than Sony or PD maybe you should enlighten everyone with a release date, thanks.

If the game has gone gold & is in production surely it's out of PD's hands now & therefore they can start work on the next GT?

Seriously if a car game is planned ahead, of course a story game is going to.

They have to work out where the story is going, and of course technology is always going forward.

Don't want to think about GT6 just excited GT5 has now an official release date.

It does? You seem to be the only person on the internet that knows for sure when this game will be sitting on a shelf somewhere, because the rest of us refuse to believe anything they say at this point.

More proof PD is just a bunch of idiots. In the time that MS put out 2 highly acclaimed Forza games, one of which has a higher average rating than every GT game except for GT3, PD is busy working on 2 GT games, neither of which have come out.

Talk about just throwing money down the toilet.

Strikepackage Bravo  +   1762d ago
Good point
I will admit I have A LOT less respect for Poly than I did before all this started thats for sure. Not sure they are idiots, but they sure as heck could learn a thing or two from Turn 10 on game development. Especially when you consider that only a fraction of the cars are even full quality premium GT5 cars, the rest are ported from old GT games.

LarVanian  +   1762d ago
I'm fairly confident that GT5 will release at some point before Christmas. But if not then its got to release sometime in January.
I'd say the earliest we will get GT6 is either fall 2012 or early 2013.
Dlacy13g  +   1762d ago
given their track record and the math... GT6 coming in 2016. Enjoy GT5 until then...well when it finally comes out...sometime...soonish...may be...
LarVanian  +   1762d ago
I'm pretty sure it will not take PD that long to release GT6 because by now they will have become fully accustomed to the PS3. And lets not forget that they will have an engine ready for it too.
Hideo_Kojima  +   1762d ago
But after GT5p they scrapted everything and started building GT5 so they have been working on the game engine, car models, physics and others things that are in the game for just over 3 years.

Unless there is GT6p it could be out before 2014 hopefully on PS4.
SuperStrokey1123  +   1762d ago
So a PS5 release title then?
Dlacy13g  +   1762d ago
honestly at the rate of GT5...you are probably right.
csreynolds  +   1762d ago
Screw GT6!
Concentrate on getting GT5 out first...
Dlacy13g  +   1762d ago
Dlacy13g  +   1762d ago
Seriously? Look, I get that they are probably already working on GT6...it just makes sense however from a consumer standpoint, maybe you could just keep that under wraps and not talk about it until you actually put GT5 on the store shelves. I don't give a rats ass about GT6 at the moment.

GT5 has too be out soon because they are producing the copies as we speak.

And it is a good thing that they started on GT6.
Since GT5 is being stamped it is basically finnished.
BUT I hope GT6 will be a PS4 title.

GT5 is too beast to be topped on the Ps3, and has too much content and features to grow tired of.
Just saying GT6 wouldnt outdo GT5 and be interesting enough if launched on ps3, the Ps4 is most likely to release sometime between early 2012 and late 2013. GT6 would be a PERFECT Launchtitle and also making it for the ps4 gives them more time because they dont have to rush it out before Ps4 hit the stores as a ps3 title that would of been much better and more relevant as a ps4 title by then anyways.
StarScream4Ever  +   1762d ago
If all goes as Yamauchi stated, GT5 should be out before Christmas.
HoustonTexaz713  +   1762d ago
i bet is comin out wen ps4 launches sweet hope so
Sweeper_  +   1762d ago
Release date 2057
level 360  +   1761d ago
GT5 gene carry-over with..
Just to add my own speculation.. I think GT6 will take a shorter time to finish because it will sort of have the same building blocks as GT5 but with a few more finer tweaks, more added features ( maybe DLC and/or better/more sorted track editor than limited on GT5 who knows? ), definitely new cars ( production, concepts of this time ) and tracks.

Only question will be is will it be on the PS3 system?
