Polyphony Digital's Kazunori Yamauchi, creator of Gran Turismo, has confirmed they're wrapping up the last bits of development, but "daily progress is slow" due to its scale.
All Gran Turismo 5's basic elements are done, they just going over to give that "bit extra" right now. Polyphony could release "any time we want" but he wants that "classic GT-style".
"...my attention is focused purely on Gran Turismo 5 right now," Yamauchi-san told Famitsu magazine, reports . "The scale of this title is just dizzying, so daily progress is slow, but it's still going forward at a steady clip."
"All the basic stuff is complete, but we're trying to give everything that little bit extra at present. We could release it any time we want, really, but I want to have that classic GT-style 'did we really have to go this far?' feel going. I want to go way beyond gamer expectations."
Previously GT5 has already been said to be. It releases in March 2010 for Japanese gamers, but a western release has yet to be made concrete.
