Today Gran Turismo Sport Producer Kazunori Yamauchi took to Twitter to respond to a few questions from the fans, mostly focused on upcoming post-launch DLC.
First of all, Yamauchi-san was asked whether we can expect Super GT cars in the game, and he mentioned that the plan is for them to be added via DLC.
After that, he explained that downloadable content will also include commercial cars, vintage cars, and famous cars. Polyphony intends to keep adding content to the game, “because this is Gran Turismo.”
Lastly, Yamauchi-san was asked to add new tracks as well, and his response was a very positive “of course!”
For those unfamiliar with Super GT, it’s Japan’s most relevant GT racing series. Formerly called JGTC (Japan Grand Touring Champoonship), it’s well known for its parity and handicap rules to make races exciting, and for having two entirely different classes of cars (GT300 and GT500) run in the same competition.
Cars from the Super GT series have always been a staple of the Gran Turismo franchise, so it’s nice to hear that they will be coming back.
