Sony have today announced Gran Turismo Sport, the next game in the long running driving series.
The announcement at Paris Games Week doesn’t really give anything away and it could be an interim title between main GT games, but any announcement of a new Polyphonic Digital racing titles is big news.
The Playstation Official Blog has this to say about the game; ”
In Gran Turismo Sport, there will be two online championships officially sanctioned by the FIA (Federation Internationale de l’Automobile) running simultaneously. In the Nations Cup, players will be able represent their home country. Whilst in the Manufacturers Cup, players will be driving on behalf of their favorite car manufacturer.
Players will not only be able to race as drivers themselves, they’ll also be able to root for their home country or their favorite manufacturers teams.
The winner of the championship will be awarded in the same manner as real life motorsports champions, at the FIA prize giving ceremony. This will be a historic moment, the first time a video game will officially be recognised as part of the real motoring world.”
