Gran Turismo 5 track editor unconfirmed, says Sony

Take track editor reports with a pinch of salt

Reports claim that Gran Turismo developer Polyphony Digital has confirmed Gran Turismo 5 will feature a full track editor. But Sony UK says otherwise.

A Sony rep has just told CVG: "We haven't confirmed this", adding that Sony "aren't offering any other comment at this time".

The feature is said to have been announced at a recent trade fair, where Polyphony said "you can make your own tracks". It's reported that a rep went on to clarify: "It will have a track editor. You will be able to rebuild a track from scratch or edit the tracks that are already put in Gran Turismo 5."

Sounds pretty mental - not what we expected from the driving sim. But we should wait for more concrete confirmation before you break out the party poppers.

There's no further word on a western release of the game either, which is due for Japan in March 2010.
