Sony VP mentions Gran Turismo 6 as PS3 game

Sony's making a new Gran Turismo game. Given the years of silence on the sequel, we just assumed it would be on the newly announced PS4. But, could Sony have other plans?

An interview with SCEE's Michael Denny suggests that Gran Turismo 6 may not be a PS4 game at all. Instead, it could be one of Sony's remaining games for PS3. "Look at the games coming out on the PlayStation 3 like The Last of Us, Beyond: Two Souls, GT6," he told Silicon Republic, casually mentioning the technically unannounced game.

He also mentions third-party games like "another fantastic Assassin's Creed, GTA" as games heading to Sony's aging console. Assassin's Creed 4 is also technically unannounced, but its reveal seems impending.

The need for a next-gen Gran Turismo game may have been negated by DriveClub, Sony's racing simulator from MotorStorm dev Evolution Studios. Given Polyphony Digital's methodical development approach, a current-gen follow-up to Gran Turismo 5 wouldn't be entirely surprising--although one wonders if Sony will be making a proper PS4 version of the game as well, considering the lack of proper backwards compatibility in Sony's next-gen box.

Silicon Republic released the audio of their interview for you to listen to (via IGN). He certainly sounds convinced that GT6 is a PS3 game.
