Doesn't want to see news stories claiming the game has been delayed.
Gran Turismo 6 is in development, but we're not likely to hear news on its release date until the game is pretty much guaranteed to meet that date, series producer Kazunori Yamauchi told a crowd at this weekend's Gran Turismo 5 Asia Championship 2012 event (via Andriasang).
Asked about a release date, Yamauchi said: "If I carelessly say when it will be released, you'll end up with people saying things like 'it's been delayed again!?' so I will no longer say at this type of event."
That's probably a sensible move given the Gran Turismo 5 release date saga.
