A website in South Africa supposedly has gotten its hands on a early copy of a press release that officially announced Gran Turismo 6 for PlayStation 3 for the 2013 holiday season. And lo and behold, it proved to be real. "I'd like to announce today that we are developing GT 6 for the holiday season this year on the PlayStation 3," series Kazunori Yamauchi said, according to PlayStation's official Twitter account.

According to the PlayStation.Blog, the cars and tracks from Gran Turismo 5 will all return in GT6. Of course, GT6 will also add new cars and tracks, bringing the car lineup to over 1200. Seven new locations are being added to the game, taking the total up to 33. A "much-improved" course maker is also planned. GT Academy 2103 will also kick off in July with a demo of the game.
"There's also a new engine, which will improve game operation. Meanwhile, we are set for expanded connectivity with other devices, and increased social and community functions," the announcement boasts.
Here's the first official trailer for the game:

John Keefer is a curmudgeon that has been in journalism for 35 years, the last 16 in the video games industry. He loves real-time strategy games and prefers old-school Total Annihilation to StarCraft. He also loves isometric RPGs, and has been addicted to World of Warcraft for more than 10 years. He sucks at shooters and multiplayer and is purely a PC guy. And being a former member of Shack, he also likes Chatty. Go figure.
