Gran Turismo 6 rumors rev up

Multiple listings for the next installment of the racing sim and newly discovered box art point to an E3 reveal.

Is this the box art for Gran Turismo 6? Multiplayer.com

Vroom vroom! PlayStation gamers should get ready to rev up their racing rigs as it appears Gran Turismo 6 might be coming later this year.

Following last week's discovery of Newegg's nondescript placeholder for Gran Turismo 6, Italian retailer Multiplayer put up a very revealing listing for the unannounced racing game on its Web site. Surprisingly, the page hosts a never before seen image of what could be GT6's box art as well as a November 28 release date. Keep in mind these details could be exclusive to Europe and the North America version may differ.

Newegg and Multiplayer's respective product pages for Gran Turismo 6 point towards the game appearing on the PlayStation 3 -- with no mention of a version for the upcoming PlayStation 4. However, this doesn't mean squat about the game appearing on the PS4, as placeholders for those games haven't really hit the Internet yet.

Sony Computer Entertainment, parent company of Gran Turismo developer Polyphony Digital, did not immediately respond to a request for comment. CNET will update this story when we hear back.

In February, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe SVP Michael Denny told Silicon Republic that gamers should expect GT6 this year -- putting further weight behind these recent discoveries. As of September 2012, the various titles in the hit racing simulator collectively achieved worldwide sales of more than 68 million copies.

Sony may reveal more information about Gran Turismo 6 during its June 10 press event at the upcoming E3 gaming expo in Los Angeles.
