If new rumors are correct, then the development pace over at Polyphony Digital has really ramped up. According to CNET, Gran Turismo 6 might be launching as soon as November 28 of this year.
The rumor that GT6 was coming sooner, rather than later, started when Italian retailer Multiplayer added a listing for the game, complete with a heretofore unseen box cover, as well as the previously unannounced release date. The listing has subsequently been removed, but the genie may be out of the bottle. Adding a bit of credence to the November launch rumor, we do know that Polyphony is planning some kind of announcement this month, though we don't have any details about it, as yet.

Even if GT6 is going to be ready for this fall, there's some chance that the European and North American game details – launch date included – may differ. However, a pre-Playstation 4 launch of GT6 would seem to be good way to tide over fans of the franchise, while the next-generation console version is being developed (not to mention giving PS3 a big shot in the arm on its way out the door).

Keep an eye out for more news on this front later this month, as well as for updates after the industries E3 convention, in mid-June.

      I can believe the November 28th part.. It's the "this year" part that I'm having a hard time with.

      Not sure I care. The last Gran Turismo was a travesty. A pretty one but a travesty none the less. I used to be a GT flag waver until the Forza series blew GT out of the water. Unless Polyphony Digital guarantees fresh DLC content (and I mean new cars not 5 versions of a car already in the game), full rendered interiors and more modification options, I will probably pass on this.

        100% agree bro... I loved GT1 and 2...even 3 was good... these games and Virtua racing/Daytona USA got me into cars as a kid... but Forza (not horizon) is the benchmark now, and F1 2012 :)

      Love the GT series, but GT5 was lacking severely given the amount of time they took to develop it. They need to stay more up to date with what other games are offering as the series has begun to fall behind in some areas. Would be cool to see engine swaps in GT6 and fully tune able suspension systems. Hope GT6 is good, but I'll be holding off after being slightly disappointed by GT5 to see what others say.

        GT5 was an old game the moment it was delivered. Most of the cars in the game were already 5-10 years old.

      Best joke I heard all day. Gran Turismo having a release date. If they stick to that I'll eat my own shoe.

      People pretty much mentioned here all the grips I had...the paint system, only 200 premium cars, having to spend a ton of money on cars you only use once, then got the gift car system wth when I win a car doesn't it just go straight to my garage....the load time it took to get a car I won was shameful then the race car mod...out of all cars in the game only like 20 can do it and some doubles why the zr1 and the z06???. Ive always loved gt but it seem like engineers made this game, not developers, it had no soul

      hopefully they've improved. I was never a huge racing fan but as much as I hate xbox, forza was so much better than GT5. Vehicle selection on gt5 didnt make sense. As another person mentioned there were alot of cars that made no sense. Also to win races in certain classes you had to spend an insane amount of money on a crappy car to win basically nothing. (the prius race is a good example for career mode) also not having interior views for all the cars and the paint system is so incredibly flawed. Why they thought that was a good idea I dont know. You cant even preview what a car will look like in a color.

      It feels like just last month that Gran Turismo 5 was released. I'm still enjoying it even if it is getting very monotonous. I'm more interested in GRID 2 which is releasing at the end of this month...

      Hopefully Polyphony Digital spent some time playing Forza so they can make a useable interface and better gameplay than their last version.

        I am fine with the gameplay, but yes, the interface was atrocious. You know something is wrong when you spend more time navigating the menu items than actually playing the game!

          By gameplay I didn't mean the driving part (although that was very GT4 like showing zero improvement after 7 years). There is more to those driving games than just that, setup and fine tuning of your setup as an example. All done very poorly in GT5. Yes I did buy it, yes I wanted it to be good, but sadly it wasn't good enough to keep me from going back to playing Forza 4.

          The driving has some improvements. I remember in GT4 with a very powerful RWD car, floor it in a corner and it will wheelspin but somehow not oversteer. And the tire smoke was terrible and donuts were impossible. They fixed that.

        Hopefully they can make some quality sound recordings and get some good track time with a better variety of performance cars.

      That date will certainly get pushed back at least 5 more times. How many cars will be featured in the new game? 300? Will 70% of those cars be endless variations of the Toyota Supra/ Acura NSX/ Honda Civic like it is in the current game? Will only 50 cars have HD graphics with interior views? GT5 is a joke and I suspect GT6 will be no less amusing when compared to competitors.
