Gran Turismo 5 Coming To E3 After All?
Despite what we expect from the likes of God of War III, Hideo Kojima's new project, Team ICO's possible "Project Trico," Heavy Rain, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and more, there's one game that could sneak in and steal the show: Gran Turismo 5.
When Sony revealed their E3 lineup, racing enthusiasts the world over were disappointed to see that GT5 wasn't included. However, according to French PlayStation magazine PSM3, and discovered by GTPlanet, it seems the hotly anticipated racer will make an appearance at E3 2009, after all. Some very early info has come along with this supposed announcement, too, but we're steering clear of that until the show. The bottom line is that Sony simply hasn't mentioned GT5 and officially, the game isn't scheduled to be on display. Therefore, if this new revelation is true, it could mean that Sony is planning a big surprise of some kind...perhaps a release date that's sooner than we all expect? The last time series creator Kazunori Yamauchi said anything about a launch window, he actually laughed at the suggestion that it would release in 2010. But as we weren't the ones doing the interview, we all might be misinterpreting that reaction. Who knows? All he said was that GT5 might be here "sooner than we think," and now, we learn it could very well make a big splash at E3. If you put the pieces of the puzzle together, one can come to a very interesting conclusion...
It's just another huge title to be on the lookout for next week. We're expecting to see several release dates for significant projects, and we're hoping against hope that GT5 is among them.
