After the PlayStation 4 unveiling offered no news on the next title in the series, Sony has announced that more details on the Gran Turismo franchise will be revealed at an event set to commemorate the series' 15th anniversary, according to a post on the official website.
The event will be taking place at the Silverstone Circuit raceway in Northamptonshire, U.K on May 15, with series designer and producer Kazunori Yamauchi said to be at the event to "provide an update on the future of the Gran Turismo game."
Yamauchi-san is set to provide an update on the future of the Gran Turismo game at Silverstone. His passion for all things automotive is evident in the ever-increasing levels of realism and attention to detail in Gran Turismo, and the huge range of cars for which it is famous. Strong relationships with the many manufacturers that have featured in the franchise have led to some fascinating co-operations with the automotive world; such as the Red Bull X2010 ultimate race car, GTbyCitroën concept, a design co-operation for a display featuring on the real Nissan GT-R and an innovative new app developed for the Toyota GT86.
Jim Ryan, president of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe stated that "the Gran Turismo franchise continues to be extremely important to PlayStation,” while also mentioning that "15 years of GT was an event worth celebrating along with our colleagues from the Americas, Asia and Japan."
A new teaser video was also released alongside the announcement, which offers a look at some fancy racing cars and the series' logo counting upwards to five before finishing with a cursor. Check it out below.
