Polyphony Digital boss Kazunori Yamauchi has revealed that he "really, really would love to try making some other type of game", and is concerned that he may have "missed out on a lot of things by working so hard on Gran Turismo".
"I will say that there are no plans (to make any new games outside of Gran Turismo), though I certainly have ideas for new games all the time," said Yamauchi talking to NowGamer.
"Every day. I really, really would love to try making some other type of game.??
"Gran Turismo might just have become my life. Making Gran Turismo is a lot of fun, really, though maybe I’ve missed out on a lot of things by working so hard on Gran Turismo.??"
And work hard on Gran Turismo he has. Gran Turismo 5, which finally launches on PlayStation 3 tomorrow, has been in development for five years. The series first launched back on PS1 in 1997.
But if Kaz doesn’t venture outside of the driving genre, another Tourist Trophy may be the answer.
"I would really love to make another one of those.
"We don’t have any actual concrete plans at the moment, though I’m constantly awaiting the day when I can meet Tourist Trophy again."
Tourist Trophy was released by Polyphony in 2006. It’s essentially Gran Turismo for superbikes.
Gran Turismo 5 launches in the UK tomorrow exclusively on PlayStation 3.
