Gran Turismo date at E3?

13 May 2010

The massively-delayed (but bound to be awesome) racer may have just taken one step closer to the finishing line...

Sony has just fired over a release announcing that Gran Turismo 5 will feature the entire Nurburgring. While you may have raced other versions of that track in other driving games, Sony calls this a “milestone in the history of the Gran Turismo franchise”.

If you happen to be in the Nurburgring area for this weekend’s race you’ll be able to get your hands on the new course. GT creator Kazunori Yamauchi will even be there, behind the wheel of a Lexus IS-F, as part of the World Car Awards team. Maybe he should be behind a mouse and keyboard getting the game finished?

Right at the bottom of the release was the more interesting bit of news though: “Look out for the next GT5 announcements at E3”. We don't know about you, but we think that could mean Sony’s finally ready to announce a release date. And a proper one this time...

E3 takes place from June 15th to June 17 in the US of A. We'll let you know all the best bits.
