Huge news for GT3 fans all over the world – we’re getting GTR 3, and it’s made by Polyphony Digital.
Originally, we received a Reader Submission today from PRC.net reader Kurei informing us that the staff of GTPlanet.net are fully aware of the reasons why the Course Maker feature has been strangely absent from Gran Turismo 6, though they refuse to publish what’s kept the mode from the latest version of the world’s biggest racing sim franchise. He sources a comment on a news article where one well-informed user admits GTPlanet are afraid to release the details behind the absence of the feature because it would tarnish their relationship with Polyphony Digital.
GTPlanet is essentially the home of the Gran Turismo community, and officially endorsed by the Gran Turismo team. Leaking certain news would indirectly violate certain NDA’s and get members of the dev team fired – GTPlanet obviously get their info straight from Polyphony, and publishing the info about the track maker would mean someone at Polyphony violated an NDA and talked about something they shouldn’t have.
The comment also says that Polyphony Digital are very busy and don’t have time to support Gran Turismo 6 in a proper manner post-release, or supply meaningful, non-NDA violating pieces of news to GTPlanet – instead working on numerous projects at once, such as GT7, GT Sport, a standalone FIA GT game, and Tourist Trophy 2.
Wait, a standalone FIA GT game?
We don’t know about this.
This explains the FIA partnership announced last summer – obviously something has to come of this “long term agreement”, and it would only make sense that we’d see some sort of a game based around a large FIA series to kick things off. The classic Gran Turismo game is about car collecting, hardly something that would show off a license with the FIA.
