GT Sport will go down in history as the racing game that started off as an ugly duckling that ultimately turned into a beautiful swan. If you bought the physical game by chance, then you basically have most of it missing as monthly updates have added so much to the package since. That said, there is something all fans are dying for – to play some of the Gran Turismo classic tracks.
Gran Turismo series creator Kazunori Yamauchi and his team made it very clear that GT Sport was going to be a new take on the series and that real-world tracks would be included. It wasn’t going to host the classics such as Trial Mountain, Deep Forest, High Speed Ring and Gran Valley Speedway. It is fantastic to race these vehicles on real-world tracks, but these amazing fictional tracks are what set Gran Turismo apart from all the other simulation racers out there. Well, it looks like the next game in the series will respect the past.
In an interview with GT Planet he answered some interesting question with one in particular touching on the future of the series:
I think the next title that we’re going to create will be a combination of the past, present and future – a complete form of Gran Turismo.
The reason for this is that he’s seen many younger players attending the World Tours that Gran Turismo hosts and they always bring their copy of GT2 or GT3 along with them. He said that ‘It gives me pointers and hints of the things we should make sure that we do in the future of the series.’
